Blood, sweat and T-shirts

BBC Three has been airing a 4-part series about India's garment sweatshops. It's a moving account about child labour and appalling work conditions. Six young fashion addicts experience life as factory workers in India, making clothes for the British high street. In this series, the six work in the mills of India’s cotton belt and stitch clothes in cramped back rooms, sleeping next to their sewing machine. See how it changes their attitudes to cut-price clothing. Makes me think twice about the clothes I buy from high street stores. Watch it here and think about your next purchase. This is another reminder of how blessed we really are.

It really is very sad. We need to be more discerning with our purchases.
