This post is part of an ongoing series: The Do Gooder Lifestyle
There’s no getting around it: we all have to wear clothes.
Meaning – we have to choose which clothes to buy and wear. In addition to fit, style, and price, we do gooders might want to think about where our clothes come from, as well. Recent tragedies in the Bangladeshi garment industry (see this thoughtful NPR piece) brought this front and centre for me.
So, I had to ask myself: What can a regular person with a limited budget living in a mid-sized Canadian city do to clean up her clothing supply chain? I already knew about one store in my city (Lucid Lifestyle) that sells sustainable fashion, and I’ve made an effort to shop there in the past – but what else?
