After watching, post the following:

  • Find an example of a company involved somewhere in the clothing supply chain (designer, manufacturer, retailer) , and post a summary of what they are doing to address this issue.
  • Research a “sustainable” clothing company’s website, and check the prices on the clothing. What are your thoughts? Do you agree with the idea that consumers making sustainable clothing choices and avoiding fast fashion are mostly ones who can afford to do so? How can any inequities be addressed, that is, making sustainable clothing more affordable? Are there concept from Chapter 9 which would help support the case for a more sustainable clothing market?
  • After thinking about the issue, is there anything you would change about your clothing purchases?
