'You're never too small to make a difference'
by Joyjeet Dutta 8A
Climate Change is a term which generally refers to the
temperature rising, and many see it as a huge issue. However,
there are many other issues to worry about that all play a part in
the destruction of our planet, not just Climate Change.
The Impact of Textiles
Production of garments and tailorings all begin from the fabrics
and cloth. From cotton to silk, these fabrics are mass produced
in poor countries where farmers are paid minimally, often less
than 3% of the total profit.
A-List clothing brands and mass producers such as H&M do not
produce clothes, but purchase them off unethical sweatshops
with horrible working conditions. Bargaining lower prices,
sweatshop managers have no choice but to accept whatever
payment is stated by the client since it is the only means of
producing any money at all.
Sweatshop workers have poor living conditions and a horrible
working environment without guaranteed safety due to the
minimal amount of profit by the sweatshop managers.
Sweatshops are the modern day slavery.
