What appeared to be an abandoned building surrounded by hoardings with colourful hoardings displaying some typical global brands. Seen on the road out of Asuncion, Paraguay in 2012, as we leave on the long distance coach for Buenos Aires. A journey that for us leaves around 6pm, maybe earlier, if I remember correctly and arrives the next day, 19 to 20 hours later. 29th February 2012.
I keep my clothes for a very long time. I can’t remember when I bought these but it must have been decades ago. I can only imagine that the UK workers were paid a reasonable wage compared with the wages paid to those making the latest clothes. Such is the exploitative economy of countries like the UK and others that has existed over the recent decades. We may rarely find physical slavery but there’s plenty of economic slavery in the world trying to keep unsustainable first world consumption alive. 22nd June 2014.
An organic cotton T-shirt that’s meant to be a bit of fun and that aims a little derision at all those brands that put meaningless words and symbols on clothing. See what you think. It is printed by Teemill so being organic cotton we hope that it is the least environmentally loading clothing that it is possible to produce.
We need to live in not just a sustainable way but one that causes the least environmental loading on the planet. You can even send these items back to be made into new things when you have finished with them.
A broken down car on Calle Bernaza in Havana. In the background we see the signage for a brand. Why are people so gullible about brands even in places like Cuba? Individuals seem in many cases unable to think for themselves which is very dangerous for our societies. 16th March 2013.
An organic cotton T-shirt that’s meant to be a bit of fun and that aims a little derision at all those brands that put meaningless words and symbols on clothing. See what you think. It is printed by Teemill so we don’t control the base price but being organic cotton we hope that it is the least environmentally loading clothing that it is possible to produce.

Why do we allow corporations to get away with this? It is time that corporations and their executives were brought to answer for their actions. They enhance and further the us and them, the haves and have nots in our society.
The Guardian reports that some more brands are going to the wall and some are blaming Brexit for their demise. The real reason for the demise is that the unsound economic and morally offensive consumption of fashion made by exploited foreign labour and bought on ever more extended credit is not sustainable financially or environmentally. With 300,000 tons of unwanted fashion going into landfill and contributing to the plastic contamination in the foodchains it is clear to see that this is not a long term financial model and is in itself morally bankrupt.
