    Throwaway culture may not seem to affect you personally (spoiler: it actually is), but the fast fashion cycle of shop/wear a few times/donate is having a massive negative impact on humans, animals, and the planet...it's just happening out of our line of sight. In part one of a three part series, Liz Ricketts of the OR Foundation breaks down the repercussions of our overconsumption on Ghana, its people, and our entire planet. About 15 million secondhand garments from the Global North arrive in Accra, Ghana each week. These bales of "dead white man's clothes" represent a massive industry with incredibly negative economic and environmental impact. Liz will describe a typical day in Kantamanto (the secondhand clothing market). She'll explain why resellers often say a prayer before opening a bale, and what happens to the 40% of these clothes that are simply not sellable.  Please follow the OR Foundation on IG @theorispresentExtra Credit Reading"This is not your goldmine.
