97% of all apparel bought each year in the USA is manufactured abroad -- most often in horrific, un-sustainable conditions with dire consequences 4 the environment, the planet & its ecosystem.
100% of 4-rth's fabric, and all Yoga apparel & related trims, are proudly made in downtown Los Angeles -- in the iconic fashion district!
Meanwhile, there are 3.5 Million apparel "slaves" in Bangladesh alone -- most of them young women who toil 12-14 hrs/day, six to seven days out of the week. Their pay -- a whopping .25cents/hr on average. This is not only unacceptable, it is deplorable.
Which are the companies that purchase these goods in bulk? You guessed it... H&M, The Gap, Walmart, to name a few.
Remember, when you buy inexpensive, even "cheap" clothing, the "price" you pay is not capturing the true "costs." These costs include things like the lack of employee benefits and of course the damaging toxic pollution dumped into the environment that we all share. There is only ONE ecosystem -- so remember, "what goes around, comes around!"
