MONTVILLE, NJ --The Montville Green Team announces a free screening of the documentary “True Cost” on Sunday, Nov. 5, at 2 p.m.at the Montville Township Public Library.
A must-see for anyone who buys clothes, this documentary explains how most big-name clothing manufacturers are causing severe environmental pollution and committing various human rights abuses in foreign factories. Working in hazardous buildings that violate code and surrounded by toxic chemicals, third-world factory workers have little choice, but you do. Before starting your holiday shopping, come to the library to see the documentary and learn more about this important issue that will surely change the way you look at a mall.
The first 15 attendees will receive a free gift bag with fair-trade chocolate and a $25 gift card for www.krochetkids.com, a fair trade clothing website for all ages. There will also be a free gift raffle of items from local artisans and fair-trade companies, ranging from edibles to jewelry. For motivated viewers, there will be more information about various options for clothing and gifts that are better for people and the planet. Light snacks will also be provided.
This documentary is the second in a series of environmental documentaries being presented by the Montville Green Team, with the help of the Montville Environmental Commission and the Montville High School Environmental Club.
