Analysis from Re/Make

Sustainability is not a priority for Forever 21, which sadly, makes us think there’s little chance that this mega retailer will change its ways. The company doesn’t publicly disclose any information about where its products are being produced, how materials are sourced, or how much their makers are paid. In addition, they have a history of unethically ripping off designers for their clothes. In recent years, workers in the Los Angeles factories have been found to make as little as $4 per hour.
