The Anti-Sweatshop Community
MicroRevolt is a campaign to end sweatshop labor through knitting. I read about it in a knitting magazine, "Interweave Knits," and thought it was pretty awesome. Some of its projects include software which will turn any company logo into a knitting pattern and a huge swoosh blanket to be presented to the Nike CEO with a plea to change its labor practices.|
The article I read about MicroRevolt also stated that "apparel corporations that capitalize on cheap labor would have to change their policies if two percent of U. S. citizens demanded that garments be made under fair working conditions." That's only a little over six million people--something to consider.
Also, this is my first post. I'm excited about all the action going on in this community.
