I've been wavering the last couple months on making the big commitment to stop supporting companies who use human exploitation in creating their products.
This week I did it... I took the plunge. If you've seen the FLA list of socially responsible organizations, it is not a very long list. Not only are these companies a little more expensive than I am use to, the styles aren't exactly my own. Thankfully I was enlightened that I can also shop at second hand stores, seeing as the proceeds usually go to a good cause rather than to clothing companies.
So, today I went to the outlets of a couple of the acceptable stores to check them out. I was a little disappointed to walk away with only a pair of jeans and a tank top, but I think when I wear them I will be satisfied knowing I am doing my part...although ever so small.
So wish me luck on this journey of self discipline. I can do it...I think :)
