I had a very nice conversation with my Mom today. She was very sad because she saw on the news that a cloth factory in Bangladesh had burned down. Most employees of the factory, which are girls between the age of 13 and 18, had died in the fire. So my Mom said to me, with her sweet, sad voice, “Isn’t it crazy that so many children work in these countries for a minimal wage so we can go into a store and buy a hip shirt, wear it for a few months and then throw it out again? And if we don’t go with the fashion, people look at you in a weird way.” She continued, “I am not going to be part of this game anymore.”
