As a consumer and recipient of clothing from the global garment trade, I've set out to be more responsible in my clothing purchases. If I can make an impact in alleviating labor abuses, such as those documented by the Asia Floor Wage Alliance (AFWA), I will do so. These abuses affect all people, women, children, communities. I love this blouse by Jealous Tomato, sister co. of Salt & Pepper, @shopflyingtomato
& Champagne & Strawberry, for it's edgy, boho, vintage, feminine style. Their online profile indicates their clothes are designed, manufactured, and distributed from their L.A. headquarters, but the sewn tag says Made in China, so I'm unclear of this process. I wish their website had more specific information similar to @thecatspjsofficial.
Fab overalls from @gap
, a company who has had its fair share of ups and downs with ethics abuse issues in its vast overseas' facilities. Awarded a 2007 Ethisphere Institute recognition for one out of one hundred companies as "world's most ethical companies", I'm still trying to figure out the company's status on these issues. Sometimes this effort is overwhelming, but truly important. "A basic level of supply chain transparency in the garment industry should be the norm for the 21st Century."
