When’s the last time you wrote a letter to a store you shop at asking that they pay fair wages to their employees? We don’t want to support stores that own sweatshops, but I think this is an area that many of us told a blind eye. Because of convenience. Or price. Because who can afford to shop at more expensive stores that pay fair wages?
But we can always buy better quality items less often. Or frequent thrift shops.
Another option is to demand that stores stop using sweatshops and treat their workers fairly. Chain Store Reaction is a website that has letters set up for you to send to all sorts of companies. Why not check it out today and send off five letters to the stores you most often frequent?
