Sweatshop - Deadly Fashion: unforgettable moments

cambodian sweatshop

Aftenposten's Sweatshop - Deadly Fashion documentary series is worth a watch. Although it doesn't devote as much time as I'd like to the inner workings of the sweatshop industry in Cambodia (an extended project like this would be great), it still manages to be an eye opening experience for both the viewer and the Norwegian fashion bloggers sent there for the project.

Over the course of several days, three young bloggers explore what daily life is like for a Cambodian garment worker. They sleep in a worker's home, spend a full day working at one of the local factories, and try to buy groceries on their $3.00 a day wages. They also learn a bit about what locals are doing to demand living wages and visit a resource center to have one-on-one meetings with downtrodden workers.

  1. I haven't had the chance to watch the entire show yet, but I'm hopeful that it will have an impact on consumers. I've seen the links retweeted on fair trade accounts, but maybe the wider world is watching, too.

    2. I visited the blog of one of the girls featured and she said Ashton Kutcher tweeted about it, so I think it may be getting good exposure here.
