Okay someone sent me an old article regarding reducing possessions to lessen our “carbon footprint” this is actually, not a bad idea in theory. As most name brand (like Nike) clothes, are made in Vietnam and we spend a lot on such items. But do you really think this idea is a reality in Oak Park, IL???
I get my feet stepped on by kids existing in their I-pads at Walgreens at Lake and Harlem, the Village trustees are “modernizing” Downtown Oak Park, IL rapidly and half the parents I see on the streets are just absorbed into whatever “product” they want to buy that they ignore everything under the sun even their own kids.
I did love the article and I make sure the clothes I buy are usually made in America or somehow support local business and artists. I gave up on national brands long ago, like Nike, Abercrombie, etc. and if I do rock something from a chain store unless its underwear I hold off until I find clothing that does not help corporations prolong sweatshops and reduce local jobs.
