One question to ask on the topic of unsustainability is while we are trying to regulate textile factories in Bangladesh to better social and environmental standards, are we also lowering our need to own excess clothes and shoes?

As our gaze is on child labour and horrible working conditions in factories, are we questioning the Walmarts and Primarks of the world simultaneously?

Do we as a society find something wrong about the fact that a product that is sown, harvested, woven, stitched and transported across continents costs less than a sandwich?
