30 Oct Eco Fashion – How high is the price?
I’ve been asked quite alot lately why many of the eco friendly fashion labels in Australia are quite expensive to buy. I am often posed with the question, “why would I buy this organic cotton t-shirt for $80 when I can go to “(insert big department store)” and buy the same thing for $20?”
Well, the answer isn’t as simple as it seems, nor is it what most consumers would like to hear.
I have always been quite abashed that people would rather buy their goods as cheap as possible to save their own back pockets, rather than loking into where things have come from, and considered what making this thing cheaply might have done to someone elses life.
