Description: Fashion Show at 1:00 pm. The fashion industry is the second largest industrial polluter, after oil, and it’s one of the worst offenders when it comes to fair wages and safe working conditions. The Netflix documentary, “The True Cost,” exposes serious problems within the fashion industry, through disturbing images, such as toxic waste from leather factories flowing into India’s water—50 million litres a day. Workers in developing countries, like Bangladesh, Cambodia, and Pakistan, earn less than three dollars a day making garments to satisfy our growing demand for cheap, disposable, “fast fashion.” Fair Trade means fair wages, safe working conditions, and sustainable production methods to preserve the environment.

COBS & CHILI Lunchroom,will serve chili,a bun& a drink for $5. Proceeds will go to Sleeping Children Around the World.
