The life cycle of a t-shirt

I rarely post other people’s work on this site but since I’ve been thinking a lot recently about the impact clothing has on the world, this video from TED-Ed is right on the money. Keep in mind that while it’s focused on t-shirts, this video’s message applies to much of the mass-produced wardrobe. I like this video for its no-nonsense approach to the truth behind the fashion industry but also because some solutions are on offer. I would add one thing myself, my new mantra: buy less but buy better.

This video is part of the TED-Ed educational series, and is well backed up with plenty of research and further reading.
