Sure, we wanted stuffs that are inexpensive and won’t cost us a large of amount of money to be spent. If there are important things that we CAN buy for less, we’ll choose it. But do we even know how it was made? What people went through to make and finish the product?
That is this wonderful social experiment made by Fashion Revolution is all about. One of our main needs in life is our clothing and if we got the chance to buy clothes with less money, we’ll do it. People in Berlin were lucky enough when a vending machine was set up and offers passers-by shirts for only 2 Euro (roughly $2.19). But here’s why they don’t buy it.
Seriously, who could resist an offer like that, right? Yet however, it’s not all about the cost but the awareness. Millions of workers are making our cheap clothing as many as 16 hours a day for as little as 13 cents an hour (Sink that in). “Consumers didn’t cause this problem, but that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t be part of the solution,” Fashion Revolution Day founder Carry Somers. So, who made your clothes?”
