Fashion Bloggers working in Cambodian Sweatshop

After starting this blog, I now cringe when I hear people talking about the “great deal” someone got on their clothes.  Paying $20 for a dress?  Someone paid the price, if it was not you, chances are, it was the woman (or possibly man) who made it.

 

Interested in what it is like to work in a sweatshop?  A couple of fashion bloggers took the plunge and went to work in a sweat shop.  A reality tv show covered their experience.  The is quite critical of H&M, which has been one of the better companies with information about where and how their clothes are made.

You can read about the the show here:  http://www.ecouterre.com/reality-show-sends-fashion-bloggers-to-work-in-cambodian-sweatshop/ and read the response from H&M.

A link to the show is here:  http://www.aftenposten.no/webtv/#!/video/21031/sweatshop-ep-5-what-kind-of-life-is-this  there are English subtitles.

    I’m so happy to have found your Canadian blog! I found it when I was trying to research how ethically responsible Carter’s is. I agree they have a lot on their website, but I always wonder how much is actually acted upon. That they cannot even answer your question tells me quite a bit… they clearly don’t have the resources assigned to it.

    Interesting that you cringe when you hear about a ‘great deal’. Recently, I stumbled upon a blog called something like ‘Guiltless Fashion’ – and you guessed it… no, it wasn’t about ethical clothing choices it was about cheap, fast clothing. To me, that is the most guilty fashion of all.

    I’m looking forward to reading more!
