Sure, here's another one: The fast fashion supply chain is incredibly complex, involving multiple tiers of suppliers and manufacturers located all around the world. Brands have little visibility into the lower tiers of the supply chain, which can lead to ethical concerns such as forced labor and poor working conditions going unchecked. Additionally, the pressure to produce large quantities of clothing quickly and cheaply often results in environmental harm, such as excessive water usage and waste. The video emphasizes the need for greater transparency and accountability in the fast fashion industry in order to address these issues.

However, the industry's sustainability track record is particularly alarming, with 20% of freshwater pollution and 10% of all global carbon emissions being attributed to the fashion sector. Social sustainability is also being neglected, with growing concern over forced labor in the industry. Although the fast fashion supply chain has effective inventory management techniques, it is astounding that a sector tarnished by allegations of forced labor is still expanding.
