The True Cost

SCPL News

This is a story about clothing. It’s about the clothes we wear, the people who make them, and the impact the industry is having on our world. The price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, while the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically. The True Cost is a groundbreaking documentary film that pulls back the curtain on the untold story and asks us to consider, who really pays the price for our clothing?

Henry Schwab, CEO/CFO of Synergy Organic Clothing will be talking about their alternative clothing production model after the film. We'll also supply attendees with information about sustainable clothing.

Sunday • April 30th
1:00pm - 3:00pm
Downtown Library
224 Church St. SC

Filmed in countries all over the world, from the brightest runways to the darkest slums, and featuring interviews with the world’s leading influencers including Stella McCartney, Livia Firth and Vandana Shiva, The True Cost is an unprecedented project that invites us on an eye opening journey around the world and into the lives of the many people and places behind our clothes.
