As I’ve stated earlier, it is difficult to tell if a company uses sweatshops or not.
So for my last post, I want to leave you all with a guide guaranteed shopping sweat-free.
The Center for a New American Dream, a non-profit organization that helps Americans consume responsibly to protect the environment, enhance quality of life, and promote social justice, has a great guide to ethical shopping that I highly recommend. Fair Indigo and Fair World Gallery are also great sources of sweat-free clothing line information.
According to the Center for a New American Dream, the follow clothing lines are completely sweat-free and environmentally-friendly:
