If you like clothes, watch The True Cost. If you don’t like clothes but wear clothes, watch The True Cost. If you don’t wear clothes, please email me. Then watch The True Cost.
If for some reason you haven’t heard of this film, it’s a documentary about clothing manufacture and the diabolical environmental, human and ethical damage it does. You can watch it digitally right now and it’s brilliant. Brilliant, alarming, terrifying, shocking, horrible, illuminating and ghastly. If it doesn’t change the way you go about shopping for clothes, you’re a fucking barbarian and I don’t want to know you.
The juxtaposition of the terrible working conditions in Bangladesh and the beastial behaviour of crazed western consumers on sale day is sickening. Just watch it. Watch it now and suggest others watch it. Corporations won’t change their behaviour unless the consumer does first. Just watch it. Seriously, now, fucking watch it. I’ve haven’t been this worked up since they reduced the size of the Dairy Milk.
