Nice article. No, disposable fashion isn't worth the price; for the consumer or for the environment. As the Finnish saying goes, "the poor can not afford to buy cheap things".

I am guilty. While I would love to buy better quality, it is hardly affodable this day in age. It is much easier for me to purchase inexpensive clothes more often than to come up with the money to purchase high quality clothes one or two times. If the higher quality were a little more affordable I dont think this would be such an issue. Also, as long as companies contiue to outsource, hurting jobs that could be held on a more local level, this will be an issue. How do we as the consumer help stop this?

It's all about what you can do. Forget brand names and what's considered cheap. Buy what looks and feels good and is affordable for you. Nothing lasts forever, but that's why people learn to sew. I love buying thrifty finds and recycled clothing and bringing it back to life. Fabric does not need to be thrown away. Reuse and reuse!
