When you think about the fashion industry, "climate crisis" probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. In fact for many people, the two barely link. In this age of cheap clothing where you can essentially bulk-buy items to always have a different outfit of the day, almost everybody has a wardrobe full of clothes they seldom wear. Whether they are branded or made to a higher quality, whether they are from eBay/Primark, and it falls apart after a few washes, the clothes we own are contributing massively to climate change. Thanks to numerous non-profit organisations, and social media advocates, the true environmental cost of fashion is coming to light.
"¿Plato o plomo?" The signature line of Escobar in the Netflix series, translating very loosely as "money or a bullet," encapsulates in a roundabout way reactions to Narcos. Some absolutely love it, contributing to its huge financial success and a string of nominations in various award ceremonies; some would rather avoid it altogether. Over the years the show has gained huge international success. Its fast-paced action, addictive plot and stunning cinematography would surely guarantee popularity across the board. As a fan myself, I loved that it showed the beauty of South America and used Spanish-speaking actors rather than anglicising the plot. Although my opinion may be similar to that of many European and North American viewers, it doesn't take much scrolling through social media to find that Colombia disagrees entirely.
