Skeletons in the Closet: Ethical Fashion Choices


Those polyester bell-bottoms your dad wore in the sixties?  Still in a land-fill somewhere...

It's time to come out of hiding.  Have a look in the dresser, in the closet or the coat-rack.  I found some clothing labels that didn't exactly fill me with joy, but with a sense of dread.  That moment when you realize many of your clothes might have been made by slaves. Yuck.  The following two posts bring home the need for more re-using, buying local, investment in higher quality clothing and reducing spontaneous purchases. The posts are very well-written and eye-opening.  Kudos to Shannon Whitehead!
