    Bangladesh tragedy in April 2013 -  volunteers try to find survivors.The BBC has confirmed that over 1,100 people have died when a garment factory building collapsed last month.

    I don’t think we’re alone to be shocked and saddened by this terrible tragedy in Bangladesh.

    Bangladesh has been a large supplier of cheap clothing over the last 30 years. Make it British estimates that this industry turns over £20bn a year and accounts for 80% of exports.

    Unsafe Working Conditions

    Shockingly, according to an article from the BBC, 50% of garment factories are located in unsafe premises.

    It does get you to thinking where other low cost goods are manufactured around the world, and how safe the working conditions are. Most of us want to make sure we purchase good quality and value products, but not at the expense of people’s safety.

    If there is something positive we can take from this awful tragedy, is for people to stop and think where their goods have come from, and their real value.
