To Die For: Is Fashion Wearing Out the World? By Lucy Siegle — review
Du kanske gillar. Permanent Record Edward Snowden Inbunden. Ladda ned. Spara som favorit. An expose on the fashion industry written by the Observer's 'Ethical Living' columnist, examining the inhumane and environmentally devastating story behind the clothes we so casually buy and wear. Coming at a time when the global financial crisis and contracting of consumer spending is ushering in a new epoch for the fashion industry, To Die For offers a very plausible vision of how green could really be the new black. Taking particular issue with our current mania for both big-name labels and cheap fashion, To Die For sets an agenda for the urgent changes that can and need to be made by both the industry and the consumer.

That back blurb made me want to read on. Because of the research-based and journalistic style of this book, I found it very credible. I also found it very compelling. This book takes us on an interesting journey. And what was so fascinating for me was how it leads all of us who are on our individual, personal shopping journeys to a mega highway. No matter what your personal circumstances and relationship to shopping and each of us is on our own individual path there this book makes it impossible to ignore and deny the larger impacts of our shopping behaviours. Why I chose this photo was because it includes the post-it notes sticking out of the book.
