I really enjoyed this book, and it makes me want to overhaul my closet and/or start sewing my own clothing. I think what got me the most was the fact that most of our donations to Goodwill, etc. end up in landfills, despite our best intentions. Then, the clothes made from synthetic fabrics never biodegrade!

On the other hand, voting with our dollars and only buying clothing that is made properly/from thrift stores/making our own will mean that the employees in sweatshops across the world will make even less than they did before because the demand is not as high.
