Caveat Emptor: a new wiki [Jun. 24th, 2007|02:52 pm]
The Anti-Sweatshop Community

A friend and I have just started a project called Caveat Emptor. It's a wiki with the purpose of informing the public about more conscientious consumption--reducing it as a whole, but also focusing on socially aware and green living. In today's market, buyers should be aware of how their purchases and waste impact people and the Earth.

Since it's a wiki, anyone can write an article, and we need more content! Most of the articles are just a sentence and a link so far, if that. You can add articles or edit existing ones. We're looking for green/sweatshop-free businesses, organizations, concepts, books, films, and news. If you've never worked with a wiki before, check out here and here to get started.

Thanks!

The wiki code to categorize an article is [[Category:Concepts]] or whatever category it should go under. But you don't have to worry--the logistical bits are what admins are for =). We're just desperate for content and for more people to join up. Thank you!!
