Directed By Amanda Camos
Have you ever wondered where your clothes come from or who makes them? Unfortunately, garment workers overseas are treated like slaves and do not make enough money to support themselves or their families. Clothing companies in the United States take advantage of this and produce clothing at an insanely rapid rate, creating the "fast fashion" industry which is not sustainable, ethical, or environmentally friendly. The fast fashion industry wastes water, pollutes the atmosphere, and destroys the health of those who have to work in unsanitary and dangerous factories.
