In this video, we delve into the complex world of fast fashion and its impact on the environment, society, and garment workers in low and middle-income countries. Together with Dr. Amber Martin-Woodhead, a geographer and expert in the fashion industry and supply chains, we uncover the challenges of addressing the often unseen issues of informal outsourcing, bonded labor, and child labor in garment production. This video provides an invaluable insight into the vital role geographers and researchers play in understanding and uncovering the realities of the fashion industry's global supply chains, ultimately helping to create a more responsible and sustainable fashion industry for all.
