Be Green 101
We are a nation that collects cheap and cheaply made products. Our national flag should be a FOR SALE sign and our white house, Walmart. Evil marketing campaigns further add to our inexplicable WANT and NEED for material things. But nothing is for free, my friend. Our habits are made possible by the exploitation of underpaid laborers producing under poor conditions in other parts of the world (and sometimes even in our own backyard). Due to these realities, my ‘Fashion’ class decided to partake in the ‘Compact’ challenge. We went 28+ days without buying anything new, except for food, entertainment, and personal items.
