Earth911 Inspiration: Fashion is Far From Cheap

What you are wearing came with an environmental and social cost that isn’t necessarily reflected in the price you paid. Fashion is a complex industry that touches every continent.

Today’s quote comes from the Founding Dean of the Dubai Institute of Design and Innovation, Sass Brown, “Cheap fashion is really far from that. It may be cheap in terms of the financial cost, but very expensive when it comes to the environment and the cost of human life.”
