On April 24, 2013 --1,133 people died (since that time more have died) and 2,500 were severely injured when the garment factory they were working in collapsed in Bangladesh. Many of the 2,500 survivors are without arms and legs with NO social support programs from the retailers involved or the country of India to help them.
This happened because consumers (we) want t-shirts and clothes for $5 dollars. Someone does pay the price. Question is WHO? Are you mindful and conscious of who made your clothes? Do you know how they are made? Where they come from? What it takes to make them?
