Episode 6: Does the Sustainable Fashion Movement Hurt Garment Workers
Re/make is a nonprofit that is igniting a conscious consumer movement to turn fashion into a force for good.  They are on a mission to help 1 million people remake their closets with fashion that respects women and the planet by 2025.  Their motto, #wearyourvalues. There is something the fashion industry doesn't want you to know, and that is the dangerous and unethical working conditions of garment workers, especially those who work for fast-fashion brands.  Slow fashion, or sustainable fashion, advocates aim to educate people on how to buy less and/or buy better.  It a commendable mission and a way to vote with our pockets, but what does that mean for the garment workers whose livelihood depends on the wages coming from fast fashion?  Will those factories step up with better working conditions and pay, or will the garment workers suffer from less business.  Remake founder Ayesha Barenblat tackles this complex issue in her article: Does the Sustainable Fashion Movement Hurt Garment Workers?
