1. Poor working conditions. Workers in Bangladesh were forced to work in old factories that were very unstable. A lot of people died in Bangladesh in one of the factories when it collapsed. It is sad to see that the workers knew that the building would collapse anyway and they still went to work, they are forced to go because in 3rd world countries if they lost their job it would be hard to find another source of income.
2. Human beings are treated as objects. This is a little fragment out of all the fragments that they talk about these people as they were property. I think that this is the biggest problem because if we would care about other people and their life and the way they are living then I don’t think we would be still doing this.
3. Families are forced to send their children away to get education. Parents aren’t able to support their kids so they had to send their kids away so they could get an education and they could have a better future than them. But how can they get a better future if they won’t be able to find work and will be forced to work with a minimum wage?
4. Polluting the planet. Fast fashion is polluting more and more our planet. We are told that things make us happy and we buy things continuously and because they have such low prices we don’t care if we throw them away. They end up in landfills and with all this waste we are running out of space to burry all these clothes.
5. Health implications. Since the demand for clothes increases so does the demand for cotton, water, pesticides increases. Because we want our soil to be more productive we use fertilizers. All of the fertilizers have a lot of chemicals so they are causing the people that live in those areas to have cancer or birth defects so families have to watch their loved ones die.
