A look at fast fashion and its impact on the environment and social justice, perfect for middle grade classrooms.

Did you ever think about where your jeans come from? How about the people who made your T-shirt, or what happens to the clothes you grow out of when you’re done wearing them? The fabrics clothes are made of, the way they are designed and sewn and shipped around the world, and the way we consume them and get rid of them—every step in this process has a big impact on our environment, on the people who work in clothing factories, and on our cultures. This nonfiction book shows us how the clothes we wear—and throw away—every day are made, and what that means for our planet and for people around the world.

Epilogue with “here is what you can do” suggestions. Glossary.
