Fiberorganics YES!

Blossom-organic cotton


Beautiful prints are available at the Fiberorganics online store. I am so glad to see this!!!
Also they carry a nice range of solids in hemp, cotton and bamboo (a product that can be produced without the possibility of caustic chemical calamity ..I learned this at Green Fast last Sunday as there are currently 4 production methods out there- 2 good & 2 that need improvement, lots of improvement. (Will get into this later!)

Anyway, check out the great hand screen prints on hemp and the SwankySwell prints on organic cotton.

Note: Organic cotton has been a factor in food scarcity as land devoted to production for export is a root cause of global hunger. When small farmers are booted off or "forced: to sell their land (12 Myths of Hunger, Moore, M.) they lose their ability to feed their families. The world loses crop diversity- aka priced out of survival.-

This is a down side of the industrial model going green, we need to consider the whole cycle of production and the sideline ramifications. I was assured at Green Fest that this is being considered by current importers, however I have not looked into it enough to do other than hope it is true.

Labor Behind the Label

Killer Jeans
Labor Behind the Label is now following me on Twitter. I usually check to see who new followers are and thank the ones that appear genuinely active in paradigm shift work. I found out that LB the L is behind the "Clean Clothes Campaign" and that sand blasted jeans are exposing workers to a practice that jeopardizes lung health.

I want to go into a tirade about corporate bully tactics "pushed" by "shareholders" and/or other "stakeholders" in the capitalist blame game that minimizes guilt..."if we don't do it someone else will" NICE, as spreading of the guilt allows bad practices to multiply, but I will stop here.

The truth is, we can take the phrase and make it our own. If we don't awaken and say no to the bad karma and the energy of distress that our consumer economic lifestyles generate, we will barely see the light of our unique and our collective true potentials. Saying no to goods that are made cheap by exploiting humans, animals and natural resources weakens the fabric of life and that rots the thread of existence.
