Fashion Revolution Week: Finding a Balance

Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, 1911

The Fashion Revolution began because of a recent tragedy.  It wasn't the first one, and it won't be the last.

Who do you blame? Big businesses? Factory owners? Small consumers? Rich countries? Poor countries? People who just want to buy a pair of sweatpants?

How do you change a big, complicated mess?

Proverbs 31:8-10 (N.I.V.)
8 Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,
    for the rights of all who are destitute.
9 Speak up and judge fairly;
    defend the rights of the poor and needy.

But how can we speak if we don't listen first?

And how will we know if we don't ask?
"Beauty is about balance, and what is sustainability if not finding a balance between the desires of our generation and the needs of the next?" ~~ "A Moral Sense of Beauty," by Carry Somers
