Do you consider WHO made your clothes?
The statistics regarding the impact that the fashion industry has on people is staggering. Less than 5% of the 100 million people making clothing around the world are paid a living wage that covers their most basic needs. The workers are primarily women in developing countries. Workers in these factories are often forced to work long hours in appalling conditions (UNEP, 2018; WRI, 2019). In many places, these conditions create infringements on human rights (Human Rights Watch).
Use of chemicals in clothes production also raise serious health concerns, both for the workers in the industry and consumers.
