Talk @ 4:00pm: The Women Who Make Our Clothes
Do you know who made the clothes you wear? The pursuit of cheap clothing habits in the fast fashion industry has not only led the population into a cycle of unsustainable consumerism, it also threatened the lives of millions of women involved in the supply chain. At the root of many problems garment workers face is low pay and poor working conditions. Unravel industry myths, find out the best ways to support the talented women who make our clothes and discover a whole new way of dressing in a conscious, ethical and sustainable way.
