The shirt on your back: the human cost of the Bangladeshi garment industry | World news | The Guardian
Today we watched the interactive documentary on Rana Plaza. It is nearly the 3 year anniversary for the Rana Plaza tragedy which took 1130 lives. It was a very informative documentary sharing some real details about the incident that I was never aware of myself. It was hard hitting and really makes people think. I feel something that I found hard to accept was how little has changed since this incident. It also highlighted the poverty of the country as people knew the building was dangerous but had to go to work because they had no other choice.
What I took away from this and our discussion after is that we can make small changes to our own lives. For example It would be better to buy a more expensive piece of clothing that will last longer therefore I wont be continually buying new clothing. Also to not fall for the never ending renewal of clothes in high street shops.
