The True Cost

Watched this documentary last night. It really is a hard hitting and honest documentary about the human and environmental cost of the fashion industry. Interestingly it also discusses how media has a huge influence on our desire for more stuff particularly toward the young fashion consious. They talk about young v-loggers who show their purchases without any thought or knowledge about the hidden costs that go into the making of such cheap items. The fast fashion industry is unsustainable, cruel and ecologically disastrous. Worth a watch – available on Netflix.
