Western brands import garments from Bangladesh for one very clear reason – the wages are among the lowest in the world. In a developing country the garment trade provides vital employment for millions of workers. Low wages are bad enough and should not be accompanied by violence and danger.
Disclaimer: I am not at all an expert on the big business of fast fashion however I am a concerned consumer who has chosen to learn & share as much as I can through my own personal experiences & the wealth of resources available online.
My ambition to inform & influence others to step away from unethically (& immorally) produced products is the driving force that motivates me to continue providing fabulous free eco-fashion/accessory/decor tutorials, ethical outfit inspiration and helpful thrifting tips on my Confessions of a Refashionista & Refashion Nation blogs as well as contributing & sharing my creative skills throughout the online maker world.
