What lies behind Cheap Clothes? Raising awareness on Teens

It was a complete shock for my students today to come to terms to reality as far as the textile industry is concerned. They couldn't believe that the clothes we all wear are the result of brutal exploitation, including child labour in particular Asian countries. Why not devote some minutes to discuss this in the English classroom?

GO on with simple questions: What do you normally buy? Where? Have you checked your T-shirt label to see where it was made? Do you know that there are (a recent innovation) labels warning that the piece of clothing you are about to buy is child labour free? What are the alternatives to your usual shops?
