    I find it intriguing that the autohr presents this article as investigative journalism through use of the question marked headline, then proceeds to cite only a handful of small business entrepreneurs and independent label fashion designers as experts on H&M’s manufacturing and marketing practices. An inquiry put through to someone who actually worked for H&M, or any big box retailer for that matter, might make for a more balanced article. How, for instance, is Mr. Brown so certain that H&M must be squeezing the stakeholders in their supply chain in order to keep costs down? As a veteran of fashion retail, I can assure you there are many ways to cut costs, and operations at an L.A. boutique like Mr. Browns, where a t-shirt costs $65, are going to be vastly different than operations at a global retailer like H&M, where the very nature of their business allows for t-shirts to cost only $5. Speaking of the price difference, as someone who lives in middle America and has little to none of the disposable income that those cited in this article are so concerned about, I am always thrilled to be able to dress my family in ANYTHING for under $20 a garment, and I can guarantee that it will be worn at least a year or longer due to sheer financial necessity, allowing for greater financial leeway when it comes to goods of greater consequence, i.e. food and shelter, two things that I highly doubt people who own their own sustainable fashion boutique in L.A. or Brooklyn have any difficulty securing. The most insufferable part of this article, however, is the insinuation by both Mr. Brown and Ms.Starbuck that H&M and companies like them are encouraging a race to the bottom by offering $4.95 dresses as well as being irresponsible about what happens to the goods after consumers purchase them, and should somehow enforce both taste and rate of consumption guidelines on the general populace. I personally enjoy living in a society where I am allowed to purchase whatever kind of clothing I want and replace it at whatever rate of speed I am economically capable of, which I thankfully do not have to justify to the Mr. Browns and Ms.Starbucks of the world. I suspect that the sort of society the autohr and her sources slyly suggest would be environmentally beneficial, i.e. one in which a personal liberty like clothing is mandated and controlled by government and corporations, would be a society conducive to neither small business entrepreneurship nor uncensored internet journalism. What an amusing quandary the autohr and her sources might find themselves in were their fondest wishes to come true.

    I think it’s interesting that she mntoiens that it is the consumers job to be more mindful. Usually, people feel that they can’t possibly make a difference because they are just one person. However, if we change our spending habits, companies will take notice. People need to stop buying disposable clothing and start spending with more responsible companies. Personally, I’m a big fan of Reco Jeans. They collect scraps from their jeans factories and reweave them into more fabric to make their jeans. Most companies throw out all their scraps without giving it a second thought. By actually taking the time to do this, Reco Jeans is minimizing water and pesticide use as well as fabric waste. If you take the money you would have spent on H&M jeans and spend it at a company like Reco Jeans instead, you’ll be doing the environment a huge favor. You can check them out at recojeans.com
