This Vending Machine Sold T-Shirts For Only 2-Euros, Here's Why Nobody Wanted To Buy Them
A non-profit named Fashion Revolution has created a poignant social experiment that aims to encourage people to reconsider how they shop for their clothes.
A vending machine they installed in Berlin offers passers-by shirts for only 2 Euro, but there was an catch… they first had to watch a video about the sweatshop laborers that make the cheap clothing possible.
The video was released on April 24th, which is also Fashion Revolution Day. This day remembers the collapse of the Rana Plaza in Bangladesh in 2013, which killed more than 1,000 garment workers who had been making clothing in unsafe conditions. Fashion Revolution wants to encourage people to start asking questions about their clothes, like where they were made and under what conditions they were made.
