Bought an H&M shirt with a green “conscious” label on it. I needed a shirt. I have little money. I’m not convinced paying more is more conscious.

Interesting to see how they define conscious when fast fashion is a major driver of inadequate labor protections.

Yet to read this but sounded interesting on Fresh Air:

I’m seeing yet another avenue for research on conscious consumerism and how acts of so-called good perpetuate the very issues they purport to alleviate.

Plus, I look great in this new shirt.
