Tragedy in Bangladesh – Five Years Ago
We live in a global village and we all heard about it. Is it old news now? Not for the families of the victims who died and those who were injured.
Devastations like this happen and life goes on, but we need to care, and be part of the changes needed to make the world a safer place for everyone, where workers get a fair living wage. Let’s vote with our dollars.
My daughter Jean opened an eco-boutique two years ago–DRIZZLE & SHINE–everything compassionate: “kind to the earth and animals and that are made by people who are treated fairly.”
Jean has written many articles on her blog about ethical and eco-friendly fashion. She showed this film in Seattle.
As fashion bloggers, we influence each other and our readers, together we can make a difference.
Some beautiful outfits from Jean’s store: organic, fair trade, vegan.
This is the reality of fast fashion: cheap, disposable clothes, factories where employees are exploited.
I hope everyone watches this short video, and more importantly, that it changes how we shop. Saving lives is more important than saving a few dollars on a dress.
Let’s not forget what this cost the workers in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
It cost them their lives.
Fashion with Compassion
