Come watch this excellent documentary about the clothing industry and our excessive consumerism. Learn about solutions that help the inhabitants of our planet. Learn why certain clothing materials are particularly damaging to the environment, such as conventional cotton and leather.
There will be speakers after the film, such as local Synergy Organic Clothing. They will talk about alternative clothing production models, the destructiveness of conventional cotton production, and where you can buy clothes that create better lives rather than destroy them.
