The True Cost Screening
Green-Schools is hosting a free virtual screening of the groundbreaking documentary The True Cost – a must see for all secondary students. This film pulls back the curtain on the untold story and asks us to consider: who really pays the price for our clothing? Filmed in countries all over the world, from the brightest runways to the darkest slums, the film features interviews with the world’s leading influencers including Stella McCartney, Livia Firth and Vandana Shiva. Register your class for this free event here and watch it free for 72 hours from 9am Monday 11 October. We have also organised a follow-up Fashion Fix webinar which will be hosted by Fionnuala Moran, Radio Presenter at RTE Pulse, with special guests Nathalie Pavone, Climate Ambassador, and Kelly Dalton, Co-Founder of The Right Project. The Fashion Fix webinar will take place after the screening at 10am on Thursday 14 October.
