Channel One News, which broadcasts to more than 5 million students in the United States, takes a look at the impacts of American’s growing fast fashion addiction. The three-part series took hosts around the world, including to Bangladesh and to New York to interview Elizabeth Cline to find out where clothes are coming from and at what cost to human rights and the environment. Elizabeth is featured in Part Three of the series, which takes a look at ethical and sustainable clothing options. You can watch it here. Elizabeth’s interview is around the 2 minute mark.
“One of the biggest issues with fashion right now is textile waste. We have 85% of all unwanted clothing going directly into the landfill in the United States. One of the great alternatives to that is clothing collection drives.”
