Cheap garments and social responsibility

Two web documentaries around the metaphor of how much costs to produce the shirt / the t-shirt you wear.

NPR’s Planet Money, more involved: http://www.npr.org/series/248799434/planet-moneys-t-shirt-project

The Guardian, more traditional story telling and a good counter telling you for how long you’ve been on the story, and in that time how much money a Bangladeshi garment worker and the UK retailers have made: http://www.theguardian.com/world/ng-interactive/2014/apr/bangladesh-shirt-on-your-back
