No one has been held accountable for this. The situation is complicated and the stakeholders (government, factory owners, brands) are all ready to hold someone else responsible. But one thing is certain. As Nazma Akter, President of the Sommelito Garments Sramik Federation, told me two days ago: “fast fashion companies are so proud to publish their multibillion end of year profit results. Meanwhile the people who produce their clothes, us, go to bed hungry at night. They are producing disposable clothes with our blood. And they know. They know everything Livia”.
I can’t wait for you all to watch the amazing documentary The True Cost, available on netflix. It says it all.
