A new documentary, “The True Cost,” explores and exposes the world garment industry’s effects on humans and the environment. The film, funded through a Kickstarter campaign, gives viewers an understanding of the costs underlying inexpensive clothing.  Directed by Andrew Morgan and produced by high-profile figures like Livia Firth and Lucy Siegle, the film has received a lot of attention both within and far beyond the Fair Trade movement.
