A Brief Respite From Jokiness
Right this second I am wearing a shirt from No Sweat Apparel that was a present from my mother. No Sweat sells "100% union-made apparel," and while I haven't investigated them enough to vouch for them completely, they do seem to be serious people trying to improve labor conditions in the garment industry. I recommend you check them out yourself and consider buying their stuff.
In other non-joke news, the article I recently did for Parade Magazine about Waste Reduction Partners has been posted in their archives. Unfortunately it doesn't include the snazzy pictures, so I'm pasting them in below.
