Last week’s collapse of the Rana Plaza garment factory  in Bangladesh has shone a bright light on working conditions that we have known for years are not sustainable. More than 300 people have died  so that we can purchase cheap clothing, and families are mourning their devastating loss. What can we do to ensure that we are no longer supporting businesses that fail to pay their workers a decent wage or provide a healthy working environment? For an answer to this question, we turned to Amanda Judge, a designer from The Andean Collection . Hit the jump to find out what we can do to ensure the people who make our clothing are living and working in the same conditions we expect for ourselves.
