A community of educators empowering students to take climate action

The Hidden Human Cost of Fashion

'The Hidden Human Cost of Fashion' is a lesson plan that allows students to explore workers' rights and global supply chains with the aim of converting them into conscious consumers.

 

Exploring case studies such as the Rana Plaza garment factory disaster in Bangladesh and the Traingle Shirtwaist Factory Fire of 1911, students will develop problem-solving skills and use their power as consumers to take action against unsustainable and unethical textile production.
