Where Do Your Clothes Come From?


AP Environmental Studies students at Alameda High School produced a short video investigating the question, purchase "Where do your clothes come from?" Their research showed that the vast majority of clothing purchased in the United States is shipped from overseas which incurs an environmental cost for transportation as well as loose environmental standards for production and worker safety. 

The video includes tips for reducing the environmental impacts of clothing including shopping at thrift and consignment shops and/or looking for companies that have production closer to where the consumer lives.
