Would you buy €2 t-shirts if you knew the real cost of them?
Do you care about who makes your t-shirts?

THIS POP-UP vending machine offered cheap t-shirts – but would people buy them once they knew how they had been made?

The issue of cheap clothing has been in the news a lot of late, particularly since a number of clothing factories in Bangladesh collapsed, killing workers.

But cheap, fast fashion is everywhere in the Western world, and spending €5 on a t-shirt is something most people take for granted.

This video from Fashion Revolution put people to the test when it offered €2 t-shirts – it also provided buyers with the info on where the clothing came from.

Here’s how people reacted:
