    I have a pair of jeans from primark that have lasted forever save some fraying on the edges. Well worth however much it cost.

    I don't shop at Primark, it's horrible use of child labour really disturbs me. However I don't blame anyone for doing so. If you can't afford to shop anywhere else then fair enough. Unfortunately I think it's inevitable that there will always be slavery in the world, but I do my best not to contribute to it.

    As someone who has been to bagladesh in the past year i can say that these conditions still exist. However much their website say they're all great etc it's still not good enough and it's still unacceptable.



    I didn't want you to see it this way. Of course there's other shops that are similar to primark but imo, primark shops attract the most number of customers, and i just felt making a thread about it.

    Thing is Primark, and other retailers, aren't directly responsible due to not actually owning the factories in these countries. They can try and enforce health and safety by communication with the suppliers, but at the end of the day it is down to the suppliers. I know that is no excuse for the conditions, they are truly horrific and unacceptable, but I think pinpointing Primark isn't necessarily accurate
