This month marks both London Fashion Week and Oxfam’s #SecondHandSeptember campaign so it feels like a good time to talk about why fast fashion clothes are so cheap.
Joining me is Clare Carlile from Ethical Consumer magazine, and we talk about the impact low prices has on working conditions and the environment.
Don’t forget to join the Cash Chats community on Facebook.

This month marks #secondhandseptember, a campaign from @oxfamgb to encourage us to avoid buying new clothes for 30 days. There are so many reasons this is a good idea. From reducing the environmental impact of manufacturing new clothes, improving the wage workers are paid (in the UK and abroad) and also to save some cash. There’s more on the blog about how to get second-hand bargains, and look out for a future episode of my Cash Chats podcast that will take a look at #fastfashion #secondhandfashion #fastfashionsucks #ethicalmoney #savemoney #oxfam #workersrights #climatecrisis #cheapclothes
