Have you ever asked yourself what are the true costs of the products you are buying on the high street?
Buying from fast fashion labels has an impact on our environment on many different levels. The price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, while the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically. One of the biggest problems is that consumers often don´t even know about the impact the industry is having on our world.
This is what the filmmakers of the documentary The True Cost want to change. Filmed in countries all over the world, from the brightest runways to the darkest slums, and featuring interviews with the world’s leading influencers including Stella McCartney, Livia Firth and Vandana Shiva, The True Cost is a project that invites us on an eye opening journey around the world and into the lives of the many people and places behind our clothes.
The film is available on Netflix, iTunes, Amazon and VHX. I will leave you with the trailer to get an idea of the documentary. I am sure after having watched the movie you will see the fashion industry through different eyes.
