The death toll at the horrific garment factory collapse  that occurred earlier this week has now risen to 340 . According to the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights, 80% of the factory’s workers were young women aged between 18 and 20 . As upsetting as it’s been to watch, we’ve been following the news on Ecouterre , as well as investigating how consumers can express to the big name brands that make their clothes at the factory  that the working conditions that led to the casualties is absolutely unacceptable.
