‘The True Cost’ film – a review of the documentary about who’s paying the ultimate price for our clothing.
The documentary by Andrew Morgan is a harrowing account of how globalisation is failing when it comes to the fast fashion business. Its purpose is to raise awareness of what scenes can lay hidden behind the glitz and glamour of a fast fashion driven world. It wants every person to feel compelled to take responsibility in choosing to buy and trade ethically, they want us to think about the clothes we wear, the people who make them and the impact it has on our world.
STATED FACT: The USA alone used to produce 95% of its own clothing in the 1960’s, today it’s only 3% as everything is now outsourced to developing countries.
