The Story Behind Our Clothes

Too Cheap Fashion

Unfortunately, too many of the clothes we buy in the U.S. come from sweatshops, where employees work long hours for little pay in often unsafe conditions.  News items in recent years like the 2012 Bangladesh Garment Factory Fire in Dhaka and the 2013 Rana Plaza Garment Factory Collapse have served to bring these conditions to the attention of the world.  Follow the story and news links below to learn more about the dark side of the fashion industry.  Then visit our Ethical Fashion Guide to discover sweatshop-free clothing that is changing lives.
