What’s a Clothes Swap?…….
Have you heard of the 20/80 rule of wardrobes? Basically, it’s said we use only 20% of our clothes 80% of the time. The other 80% is just hanging there, untouched and eventually discarded, this is having serious impacts on the environment which you will learn about in the documentary. A clothing swap is a great way to give your unused clothing items a new life and keep them out of landfill – swap treasures, encourage the sharing community and make new friends.
The True Cost (92mins)
This is a story about clothing. It’s about the clothes we wear, the people who make them, and the impact the industry is having on our world. The price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, while the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically. The True Cost is a groundbreaking documentary film that pulls back the curtain on the untold story and asks us to consider, who really pays the price for our clothing?
Filmed in countries all over the world, from the brightest runways to the darkest slums, and featuring interviews with the world’s leading influencers including Stella McCartney, Livia Firth and Vandana Shiva, The True Cost is an unprecedented project that invites us on an eye opening journey around the world and into the lives of the many people and places behind our clothes.
