Clothing manufacturers are faced with alot of competition these days. In an effort to streamline costs and make more money, they outsource their garments from other countries and inevitably cut corners. It's difficult to keep track of a dress being made in say, China, when you are in Canada. A defective product is now common and consumers are getting tired of it.
On the basis of a survey of 3,500 women, Global Cool, a climate change charity in Britain, estimated that in 2008 British women spent more than half of their fashion budget on clothes, shoes and accessories that were never worn – a.k.a. landfill.
That's something to think about.
