Hey, gang! Hope you all are having a good week with no hurricanes, traffic, or unexpected bills. Here’s some good stuff I found to share with you today:
You guys know I’m all about imperfection. No matter how much I seek to live an ethical lifestyle, I can never check all the boxes. Leah from StyleWise shares the quandary of the ethical consumer and examines whether more flexible standards can make a bigger difference in the world in “Why I Quit Being an Ethical Purist.”
One of my favorite fair trade brands, PACT Apparel, has expanded their range to include more apparel for men, women, and children. Their kids’ clothing is now available in sizes up to 5T and includes pajamas, undies, and leggings. New arrivals for adults include Henley t-shirts, cardigans, and jogging pants.
I recently learned about The Lighthouse for the Blind from the newsletter for the Social Enterprise Alliance. The Lighthouse operates manufacturing facilities for aerospace parts, office supplies, and plastic injection molding, providing employment, training, and support for blind and DeafBlind members of the community. I love finding social enterprises that go beyond handcrafted gifts and provide essential products for industrial and everyday use.
