Wow. That’s amazing. I remembered my home economics classes were a complete disaster. I believe that my form teachers expressed their confidence in my growing abilities in math and science but if I could apply some of that enthusiasm in home economics, it would go a long way in improving my overall class grades. So obviously I won’t be able to do that. But I strongly believe there are other ways of living ethically.
During my recent foray into wardrobe minimalism and a general engagement on the philosophy of what to wear and where to find it, I’ve been thinking a lot about buying well-made clothes. And well made in two senses: made with a high degree quality and made in an ethical and socially responsible way. I’d love to jump off the fast fashion train entirely, but let me tell you, it is hard to find affordable, ethically made garments. If you get tired of searching, you could be like my friend Maggie, who just makes her own clothes.
