A blog I recently wrote for Greenlight Organic and which you can see here: greenlightorganic.com/blog
I’d like to add that reading “The Travels of a T-shirt in the Global Economy” has opened my eyes so much.
In this book, I learned a lot more about the cotton trade, and about slavery in America. Basically, the slaves moved this country forward and helped to place cotton as the industry leader; eliminating the rest of the competition. Many of the technical advancements also helped, not to mention the increased help from the government in terms of subsidies.
Please read on at greenlightorganic.com/blog and support businesses that help end slavery all over the world, especially child slavery.
