An Inside Look: The Real Sweatshops of Cambodia

Individual empowerment requires taking action to make the world a healthier place for others, not just ourselves!

Fashion bloggers in the Netherlands were given the chance to see where their clothing originates by working in sweatshops. Check it out:  Examiner.com/article/reality-tv-show-sends-fashion-bloggers-to-work-sweatshop

Do you LOVE fashion, but dislike the unsustainable fashion industry? I do. Expressing ourselves with fashion is a fun and healthy way to enjoy life. But the fashion industry is all about appearances, not expression and that’s unhealthy. This is one of many reasons why I didn’t follow through with a career in fashion. Mass produced fashion is an industry that is unhealthy, unsustainable and basically pointless. As someone who used to love shopping for sales so I could have trendy clothes I no longer want any part of it. I hardly shop at all these days. I prefer to buy second-hand or sustainable made clothing when it’s affordable.

These days I spend more money on food than “necessities” and shiny things. Even then I can’t just go into a 99 cent store and buy some food like product full of artificial flavors and sugar. I want real ingredients, not a chemical-based flavor of those ingredients. Food and worker justice is very important to me and it should be important to you!

Nobody deserves to grow up with their only career options WORKING in dangerous conditions for a few dollars a day. Learn more at these links:

Everybody should be concerned with where their FOOD comes from and how it’s produced. Learn more at these links:
