Their description: "This BBC Three series from May 2008 saw six young fashion addicts swap shopping on the high street with working in India‘s cotton fields and clothes factories. Find out whether they could handle a sewing machine and meet the target of two garments a minute. And whether their experience changed their throwaway attitude to clothes shopping."
Solution? Thrift stores, clothing swaps with friends, and of course, buy handmade from etsy! :D
(A skirt I recently made from all recycled fabrics; at my etsy now!)
