Corporate Social Responsibility

 So I'm loving my business ethics class, it really makes you think.
We were watching the Nike unethical practices, I remember learning of this in the 90s because it was so big. But not i's the 2013! I cannot believe it's still happening, it makes me sick that such huge corporations don't care about anything but profit. When workers are barely meeting their essential need across the world.. Well I found this group called Team Sweat, I hope you guys will join it and stay informed, it's so hard to do that these day (to evaluate every brand and their practices) but ignorant is the worst. And spread the word!

" the slave-labor crisis and blame runs deeper: "At the end of the day, the fashion houses are responding to customer demand. If customers will only pay the cheapest prices, regardless of what that means for the working conditions of those producing the goods, then the fashion houses will continue to try to meet that demand by turning a blind eye to sweat shops and slave labor. A business can't survive, if they have no customers. And what do customers want? To spend as little money as possible!"-greengopost

Then onto my other class, Apparel Marketing. We have to choose a debate topic related to apparel. We decided on "is it justifiable to use animal in our winter coats" a trend that is really big here in Canada. Coyotes, Canada Goose, Blue Fox and other animals are in a lot of the very popular jackets being sought after in Canada and it is justified that the fur is necessary to keep us warm, protect our face from freezing. Ok. I'm not sure if we will really freeze in the toronto weather... it's more of a wealth, showing off thing (they usually cost between $700-$2000)... and turning fashionable. At the expense of poor animals!! What do you think?
 recently moved again... what a headache!

Your classes sound very interesting. I miss school. I am one of those girls who has always loved learning. You look amazing in your pictures. Moving is a headache but it is also exciting because it is kind of a fresh start.
