Hi Guys,

I don't know if you have heard about what horrible things happen in garment factories overseas!? Only because we (The Western World) demand cheap clothing people in these countries have to suffer and die!

Yesterday another garment factory collapsed in Bangladesh and big apparel companies from Europe and the U.S. just let it happen...

Here's an article by the Wall Street Journal about the topic: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424...

I am a little depressed because I want to help, but I feel like the fact that I for example try to buy organic clothing produced under fair labor pratices doesn't change anything as long as nobody else does something similar.

What do you guys think? How can I make other people understand how severe the situation is? How do you guys try to contribute something valuable?

Thanks Anita!

I recently heard about this company: https://www.kinderstuff.us/.

They take back used clothing and you get a discount on your next purchase. What do you think? Is this a sustainable concept? Sounds very interesting to me...

Hi,
I think that your idea is wonderful go with it run with it for sure. I think that you can just share some stories of the people who are going through this try a fundraiser on gofundme.com its a good site. I normally donate clothing because I do not like families without clothing. I also have given gift baskets with hygiene items in them to the persons in war. I hope that answers all your questions
