Do you know the origin of your shirt?
Many Americans don’t know the answer to this question despite spending almost 20 billion as a country in new clothes each year.
On March 20, Cotton Road, a film about the global supply chain will be screened at the SR Socially Relevant Film Festival in New York. Directed by Laura Kissel, the film documents the commodity of cotton from South Carolina farms to Chinese factories. It also sheds light on the negative impacts of fast fashion and shares stories from truck drivers, farmers, factory workers, fork lift operators and more; highlighting a world that most consumers never even hear about.
There will be a Q&A session with fashion consultant and sustainability advocate Anthony Lilore after the film.
