Hidden Charges Exposed

Posted on

Most people think of “hidden charges” as the sneaky little fees hidden on a phone bill, or the extra service charges that a bank will bill out to a customer, or the inflated price of a vehicle after the dealership adds all of the additional items that were not part of the base price of the vehicle. Seldom, if ever, do we consider that there is more to “hidden charges” than the price we pay at the time of purchase. Let’s discuss more about that with Joe Kou in our Live Hangout today – you’re welcome to place any comments or questions throughout our live transmission.

Sustainability Notes from: http://threaddocumentary.com/
In 2009, the world used 3 trillion gallons of FRESH WATER to produce 60 billion kgs of fabric; it takes 700 gallons of FRESH WATER to make 1 cotton T-shirt.

20% of industrial fresh WATER POLLUTION comes from textile treatment and dyeing.

The loss, in dollars of materials, due to failure of companies and individuals in the US to RECYCLE, has been estimated at $30 billion per year.

1 trillion kilowatt hours are used every year by the global textile industry = 10% of total CARBON IMPACT.

TEXTILE WASTE occupies nearly 5% of all landfill space; The ave US citizen throws away 68 ins of clothing/yr — 1 million tons of textiles are thrown out every year
