Vending Machine Sold T-Shirts For Only 2 Euros

A non-profit named Fashion Revolution has created a wonderful social experiment that has challenged people to reconsider how they shop for their clothes. A vending machine they set up in Berlin offers passers-by shirts for only 2 Euro (roughly $2.19), but there was an unexpected catch.. they first had to watch a video about the exploited sweatshop laborers that make cheap clothing possible.

The video was released last April 24th, or Fashion Revolution Day. This day commemorates the collapse of the Rana Plaza in Bangladesh in 2013, which killed more than 1,000 garment workers who had been making clothing for American brands in unsafe conditions. The workers at such factories are often underage, and most are also underpaid and overworked. Fashion Revolution wants to encourage people to start asking questions about their clothes, like where they were made and under what conditions they were made.
