These Striking Billboards Show The Greed and Horrors Of The Fashion Industry

Igor Dobrowolski is a Polish artist speaking up about the dark reality of corporate greed in the fashion world.

Ever wondered how companies like H&M and Zara are able to sell their clothing so cheaply? Dobrowolski's billboards provide a straight-forward answer– these things were not manufactured ethically.

In a world where "faster" and "cheaper" are valued above all else, consumerist culture can be deadly. Don't believe him? Dobrowolski has numbers to back him up.

The only way out is to cut costs, by reducing wages for employees, lowering the working conditions and safety, produce with no respect for the environment.

"1,134 people DIED after clothing factory building collapse in Bangladesh," he writes. "3 of the 4 biggest tragedies in fashion history took place in Bangladesh in 2013."

"When companies are making factories to lower product prices, the owners can do nothing but agree and work faster and cheaper. If not, the retailer will have this done somewhere else."

"The only way out is to cut costs, by reducing wages for employees, lowering the working conditions and safety, produce with no respect for the environment," he says before concluding with a quote from Livia Firth.

"'We are actually profiting from their need to work, to use them as slaves, and I’m not saying that we shouldn’t give them the work, but they have to be treated with the same respect as our children or friends. They’re not different from us' ”
