WATCH THIS: fashionscapes – a living wage

“On the day that marks the 8th anniversary of the Rana Plaza tragedy, Andrew Morgan (director True Cost) and Eco-Age founder Livia Firth, release Fashionscapes: A Living Wage, the fourth in the investigative short documentary series available on Eco-Age TV. In this latest addition to the Fashionscapes series on fashion’s just and ecological future, the pair follow the story of the activists and change-makers calling time on the poverty wages that trap millions of garment workers in never-ending poverty. For the first time the industry, that allows its workforce to live in destitution for its own ends, faces a coordinated, structured challenge through international law.”
