Where your clothes really come from

Have you ever stopped to think where the clothes we purchase on the high street come from? And what about the conditions of the factories in which they are made?

Nicoline Greer's new RTÉ radio documentary From Delhi to Here explores just that.

She gained access to the Viva Global factory in India, where last summer workers protested about bad conditions, no clean drinking water, insufficient toilet facilities and underpayment of overtime.

If you want to learn more about the complexities of monitoring working conditions in the factories that make our clothes and about what you should do if you have concerns, listen back to the programme on www.rte.ie/doconone.
