Everyone loves a great deal on a piece of clothing, but what happens behind the scenes to make that low cost possible? How can a t-shirt that costs $10 be made in a way that is ethical for garment workers? The True Cost sets out to investigate these questions. Traveling to 13 different countries, Andrew Morgan pulls back the curtain on fast fashion and shows us how this 3-trillion-dollar industry can sell clothing for such low prices at the cost of its workers, shedding a light on the role we play as consumers in a system of exploitation and overconsumption.
