So, you're implying that it's all a waste of time because of that? I guess treating workers fairly and paying them a fair wage is "eco hugging" crap too?
He might not have been but I am.
It's better that workers in Bangladesh are working and therefore being paid than not. Those 'unfair' wages support families that if would suffer if businesses were forced to increase their costs before they are ready.
Plus as has been noted a £25 'eco' tshirt probably travels by van, ship, truck and at least one more van before it is delivered to the customer. Eco my arse.
I have ethics, but they don't extend to paying over the odds for average products with dubious provenance, all to make me feel worthy for five minutes. Muji do tshirts at 2 for £10 or something. Plain, good quality, cheap and they don't stand me out as an right-on Glastonbury wanker. I couldn't give a toss if they are made by blind 3 years olds in deepest India. Isn't the global marketplace great.
