Reflections on the Anniversary of the Rana Plaza Collapse

Posted by Scott on Wednesday, Apr 23rd, 2014

We will never forget.

On April 24th of last year, the ugly reality behind fast fashion was brought into the living rooms of everyday people around the world. Rana Plaza—a massive garment factory complex in Bangladesh—had collapsed into a heap of rubble, killing over 1,000 people (mostly young women), and injuring over 2,500. The truth could no longer be ignored. Accompanying the storm of haunting images of the wreckage and victims were the real stories of Bangladeshi garment factory workers—their horrid working conditions and near slavery status.  We must continue to ask ourselves: what is the true cost of fast fashion?
