If you love fast fashion then don't read this book! In her new book titled, "Over-Dressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion", Elizabeth Cline lays bare the changes in the world's garment industry in response to our growing appetite for fast fashion and its impact on our environment. When conducting her research Cline found that more than 40 percent of the clothing now produced worldwide is made of plastic, in the form of polyester.

This book may do for cheap fashion what "Super Size Me" and "Forks over Knives" did for meat lovers.
