Fashionova, Boohoo, Shein, Romwe, Zaful and many more cheap, low quality, fast fashion brands are promoted by fashion youtubers in new videos every day, but who are the people making their clothes and what is the impact these brands are having on the environment?

I'm surprise you didn't mention Forever 21. One of the worst and least ethical fast fashion brands.

Hey Kristen! I know you're from Greece, but I was wondering if you could do a video on American Apparel specifically and possibly even Urban Outfitters? They're brands that often market on sustainability and I'd love to hear your views on them. I know Urban Outfitters is probably the worse of the two, but I'd still love to hear your opinion on them! ❤️

Watching your videos, it makes me want to be a youtuber and spread those truths no one tells. This is great and I want you to rise and attain more and more people ! Sorry I just can't stop to say how great your videos are, and it feels so good to see some persons wanting to do things good, and be so responsible. 🌻 I hope one day, if I get to have the licence to go study in Grece in september 2019, I'll be able to reach you !

I'm really surprised that people still are so unaware. HOW can people not think about how that $7 shirt is created? It's weird. Like would YOU sew a shirt for $1.50 (which is more than they make per shirt btw)... probs not.

I love that you reached out to these companies! I am taking a class right now and we are doing the same thing! Maybe if they are approached by so many students and other concerned customers they might start to think more about what they are doing

Jill Reyes (1 month ago)
Lol sooooo much misinformation in this video. Before you make a video, you should fact check your claims. To think that all factories overseas treat their workers bad, child labor, no documentation, etc. is very ignorant. Yes, there are factories like that (especially in Bangladesh and India from what I know), but not ALL. Clothing companies who manufacture overseas choose what factories they want to work with, so yes, it is their responsibility to ensure the factories they are working with are ethical. A lot of companies, especially those that are public, have strict parameters with what kind of factories they work with. They send a inspector to check safe working conditions, workers rights, worker documentation, etc. If the factory is "not up to code," they cut ties with that factory. Also, companies don't work directly with the factories. They use a wholesaler to get their product. The factories the wholesaler uses is proprietary information and would not be on the about page of the company's website. Don't get me wrong, this stuff is happening and it's not right and should be changed. It's just ignorant to assume all factories operate this way, so all those companies are bad.

Legitimate question here - I get that people want to shop ethically and all but what exactly does it help to not buy from fast fashion brands? Unless absolutely everyone stopped doing it, which probably will never happen, does it actually do any good? How are the people in these poor countries going to make a living otherwise? I don't think they have as many options for work as you seem to think. I feel like boycotting is a lot less effective than actually making people aware of the working conditions and complaining to governments for changes to be made in the actual laws of the countries.
rando (1 month ago)
K well thanks for calling me ignorant and unethical lol are you vegan? Because if you're not then you are doing just as much harm to the environment. Oh yeah and hypocritical and senseless...
Sophie Girek (1 month ago)
+rando boycotting them is not taking away everyone's jobs in one day. there's gonna people all over the world that continue to buy from them. only protesting and complaining but keeping to buy from these brands (which is essentially the opposite of boycotting them) is kind of hypocritical and senseless in my personal opinion but hey to each their own if you wanna keep buying from unethical brands it your choice. I prefer opening up the possibility to better paying jobs by supporting those brands who provide them
rando (1 month ago)
I'm just saying I don't think boycotting works. The best thing to do is to protest and complain to the governments to impose stricter regulations, not to just close everything down and take away all of the jobs.
Sophie Girek (1 month ago)
+rando first of all there's many children in this industry that are directly or indirectly forces to work in factories. second point: how does that justify us supporting such brands "just" so that people can make a living that is way ways way under what should be humane and acceptable? I get that you ask yourself that question, I have done it too but the industry isn't gonna change if we don't slowly start changing our own habits to change other peoples conditions.
rando (1 month ago)
I didn't say "but how are they gonna making a living otherwise" out of ignorance but rather out of awareness of the reality of their desparation. They don't choose to work in factories because that's their dream job but in poorer countries where transportation is hard there's barely any work out there so they take what they can get.

Fashionova, Boohoo, Shein, Romwe, Zaful are actually believed to be all tied together in some way as they all sell similar and exact things at the same prices and use the same stock pictures basically with weird angles weird cropping and often use faceless models

I ordered from boohoo about a year ago when one of my favorite youtubers did a haul from them.. boy was that a mistake! The jeans I got arrived with a broken zipper and it took ages to hear back from customer services when I contacted them. I told them they sent me a broken product, I needed a refund on the price of the jeans AND the shipping I paid to receive them and that I would NOT be paying return shipping since it was their fault. After I few emails back and forth and me insisting that it was unacceptable for them to expect the customer to pay return shipping on a broken item, they just stopped responding at all. At that point I was so fed up I decided to return EVERYTHING in my order because if a brand can’t take care of their customers and stand behind their products, I’m not interested in supporting them. The label I printed off their website ended up being for free shipping though so the jokes on them.. Needless to say, I’m really glad someone made a video about these crappy brands!

Support local designers, shop in thrift stores, go to huge flea markets etc. I shop online mostly so I use Poshmark or etsy. I'd rather pay someone for their craft or buy/donate used clothes instead of a morally/ethically dead corporation.

Hmm. I was gonna sub cuz I thought she was a warrior. But ya guess not... bummer. It takes bravery to shame & judge people. Especially when time is of the essence & every day people suffer in ways you can't imagine, including how this affects & promotes the child sex trafficking industry. People need a jolt, society needs a jolt. This is not a time to be a quiet, humble pseudo-intellectual peace & love hippie... it's a time to be mean about people being selfish, spoiled & greedy & make those consequnces real to everyone. Why whisper when you can roar? Everyone is only willing to whisper & nobody wants to be the bad guy & call everybody out. That's why this is still happening. So dissapointed, oh well... just reminds me of why I turned into a mega b*tch... because I don't think there should be any gray area and honeyd voices when it comes to the pain & exploitation of millions of men, women & children. I think there should be a great sense of urgency. I'm just weird like that I guess. The first world is disgusting & these people are selfish... why be nice to them? I will never understand you people. Oooh I get it... because doing 100% the right thing would cramp your style huh?... Ya... I don't respect any of you. If this is as good as it gets... no wonder things are so f*cked.

I'm still transitioning from fast fashion to thrifting but there's not many thrift stores where I live so I still buy from fast fashion site online but idk I​ feel like there's a stigma against ppl who can't/ don't fully commit to sustainable fashion because of lifestyle/ budget/ etc. It feels like it's all or nothing when I just wanna be acknowledged for trying and be given time to slowly transition

I worked as a customer service rep for a large clothing store in the past, honestly we are just ordinary people like you and don't really know much about the behind the scenes of the products. I am not surprised by the responses that were given. I would recommend to contact someone with more authority in the company, such as someone who is in corporate. You may receive more in depth feedback. Thank you for making this video, it was eye opening.

When I come across a fast fashion haul I always leave constructive criticism about what the person is promoting and suggest looking into sustainability (non-aggressively of course) and a lot of people agree with me, but I always get a few replies such as ‘mind your own business’ ‘if you don’t like the video don’t watch it’ ‘ I’m tired of these environment warriors’ etc. It is so frustrating that some people simply DO NOT CARE and will not make the effort to at least listen to an opposing view and consider it a personal attack like wtf
LightAndCosmia (2 months ago)
I grew up getting my clothes from thrift stores and the local shops, and I can remember almost every piece of clothing I had because it was so special. So much fast fashion seems to be geared towards wearing an item only once or twice, as they are all so overly trendy and cheap. I can definitely see the pull of it, when you don't know the origins or if you don't have much to spend on clothes, especially in the US where it seems like all of these sites have ridiculous sales (like 50% off everything sales even!) and all the free shipping. :/ the capitalism mode of production is the biggest scourge the planet and humanity has ever endured.

I watched that documentary and got shooked. I'm a fashion designer, I already knew about some of these things which made me not a cool customer.lol. When I watched the documentary, I cried and got so angry and at the same time so lost...because as someone who works in the fashion industry how can you change this. Go to Bangladesh and change it all and help them, all kind of thoughts went through my mind (yes, I cried A LOT and felt discussed thinking that I help this mtf’s make more money for themselves only). I'm not a billionaire to rich those people and change their entire lives, but I think that even the smallest things you do to make a change in whatever goal you have in life does make changes. I and my partner decided to work with organic clothes. We make the fabrics (I can't get into details lol), we make the clothes and its so fun and interesting how you can make all sorts of fabrics with plants, fruits, everything! Pic beautiful flowers and make amazing good quality patters... I just love what I do now. When we finish everything, we certainly will show on social media and talk about this issue again. The f up fast fashion. I hate to even talk ff. Ew. You're such a sweetheart! Love that you approach this subject and ran for answers! Love it! ❤︎

This video made me follow you as soon as it was done. This is such an important topic, and no offense to other fashion Yourubers, but just going through bags of stuff you bought online from fast fashion companies is boring and doesn’t tell me alot about their personal style. Looking forward to watching the rest of your videos!

The K-Critic (2 months ago)
If you preach ethical goods and sustainable shopping you should also educate yourself on the topic of conflict goods. Everything you use to create your platform as a social media influencer is built upon war. Specifically, your phones, cameras, and computers are powered by lithium-ion batteries and a major component of those batteries is cobalt. Cobalt is a major conflict resource used by warlords in nations in Africa such as The Republic of the Congo to continue their violent regimes. However, that will not stop us from purchasing and using these goods because alternatives are pricey and difficult to acquire. This also applies to the textile industry. I appreciate the general message of these vloggers trying to raise awareness of fast fashion, but the subject has a lot of nuance that I have not seen anybody acknowledge. I also have an issue that these vloggers tend to only cite The True Cost, a documentary that does little more than confirm biases people already hold about sweatshops and capitalism while not actually expanding at all on any arguments presented that show evidence that sweatshops are a consequence of industrialization and actually are a rung on the ladder that lead to stimulated economies and better jobs for the whole of that nations population. That does not excuse the fact that they are harmful to the environment and take advantage of their workers, but they are unavoidable in developing nations. Stopping sweatshops would likely hurt the people of countries like Bangladesh and Sri Lanka (among other common sites of textile factories) than it would help. There’s also a certain ignorance that comes with demonizing people who do choose to shop at lower end retailers who often use sweatshop labor. Ethical and fair trade clothing is expensive, and the huge trend in thrifting has driven prices up making it no more affordable for the lower class than fast fashion in many areas. For many people it may be unavoidable to shop at retailers like Walmart or Old Navy’s (not fast fashion, but companies confirmed to have their clothing made in sweatshops conditions) for their clothes. That being said, I definitely agree that youtubers should stop promoting romwe, zaful, and other such online retailers. Not necessarily because of where there clothes are made, but because of how misleading the reviews are and the confirmed practices of these companies in sending influencers higher quality clothing than they send to average consumers. Not only are they a part of the fast fashion industry, but they’re also deceiving customers and running a complete scam. Edit: I also just want to throw in my source: 1,000+ pages of case studies on the development of the textile industry and conflict goods worldwide in an intensive course on international development.

I've actually made a video on technology, the cobalt in lithium ion batteries and why I buy all my tech second hand! 😉 you can check my video - Why I'm not buying the new iphone X - but you seen very educated on the topic so not sure if you'll learn anything new from it 😅 Also I try to always make it clear in my videos that consumers are NOT the villains in these situations, yes we have the power to improve our consuming habits but it's always the companies exploiting their workers that in my opinion are at fault.

TheNecrohazard (2 months ago)
Thank you, thank you, thank you for this! I've always been incredibly skeptical of these brands. I had a pinup style wedding five years ago, and did get my dress and bridesmaids' dresses off Boohoo. This was before I ever considered the harmful nature of fast fashion, but even then I knew something wasn't right because I had such a MAJOR issue getting the right size from them for my dress. So many people I admire on YouTube accept promotional relationships with brands like these, and it boggles my mind how they don't consider WHY these brands are so inexpensive. Every vlogger/blogger/influencer who gets stuff from them tends to get decent quality items and every "regular" person always has an issue - whether it be with sizing, shipping, quality, or even ever receiving their items. I'm convinced these places pay particular attention to what they send to these influencers in order to get good reviews and and free advertising, but then don't get two craps about what they send to all the chumps who actually fall for these promotions. I think it's pretty telling that the one company straight up told you "We are not a scam" when you didn't even ask that.

This may sound very ignorant of me but, if fast fashion brands would suddenly be obligated to improve payment and working conditions of the employes in third world countires, wouldn't they then bring their "factories" back to europe/america (aka countries of origin)and all those people in third world countries would lose their job which helps them to survive no matter how terrible the conditions are?

Sorry, but everyone who is buying cheap is also responsible for the pollution and exploitation. More is not better, but companies would not do that if people wouldn't buy their stuff. Please ask the people NOT to buy fast fashion. That is a force no company can ignore.

You do put a good point out there about fast fashion. Unfortunately, if you stop shopping from these places and the exploitation of workers stops, there are going to be long term damages, such as taking away jobs for people. It's just how the system is set up. It's sad, but true.

it's not just fashion, everything including your laptop is made somewhere in the world where workers are getting paying less than what should be. we as developed countries chooses to ignore that, not even starting a protest online or donation for foundation for some organizations that takes literally half of it's percent and spend very little help of those who really needs it. Society/government as whole needs to do the change in order something like this can stop for good. But in the end, humanity is pretty much selfish. Time to saving money for going to live in Mars for the future.

I was looking for a video like this for a long time, thank you ! Personally, I really think TRENDING and ETHICS are oxymoron too ! Fashion means trends and this craziness with the idea of ​​following a trend is undercontrol and ridiculus. I'm french and I can see all does girl buying the perfect same luxurious bag Chanel or Vitton it's like uniforme for perfect integrated consumer WTF?! Even the "Luxurious" brand make fast-fashion now ! And that is encrease by instagram and youtube "seller" who sell just fantasy and push other to buy fake or "similar" items. Also the massive mistake is copying those luxurious brand with fast fashion. Who you think you impress with your new fake Zara cardigan who look like Balanciaga one? Nobody care about what you wear ! that is the truth. If the peopol around think you have bad taste : change your people not your wordrobe ! Ps: sorry for my English grammar, i'm watching youtube video to improve my english :) If someone feel correcting my text, thank you :)

When you talk about how the workers are underpaid for working, you should also realise that they won't be paid anything if the products don't sell at all. Their aftermath would be even more worse. Hope you read this and understand.

I loved it when there was the trend to upcycle a clothing Item. like an oldshirt you havent worn in a year and just with a few snips it turns into a stylish crop top. The left over fabric can be used for rags or small things. Why cant be more things trendy that help a purpose?
