Consumers are now looking for stores with the lowest price and newest products.

As a designer it is extremely important that we are fully aware of the impact the fashion industry has on the world, because it is one of the largest global industries. But, in order to find a permanent solution to the problems we uncover there needs to be universal understanding of whats going on. Everyone should understand where exactly their clothing is coming from, and know the ethical complications that they could unknowably be supporting.

There are so many questions we should be asking, but rarely have the time to investigate in this fast pace world.

It looks into many popular brands, and highlights things that you should know about the companies current sustainability plan. Its goals is to inform the consumer. The link is bellow: check it out!
