OP SHOP.


Just vist every opshop you go past, and get all the black shirts you can find. (ive found that theres heaps more girls tops...)



re: the 'if we didn't buy sweat shop, they woud starve' arguement -

if you you buy a $10 tshirt, most of it is going to the 'exploiters' anyway... you are paying them to go on exploitng.

If the workers don't get the 2cents or whatever from the tshirt you didn't buy, then they WILL get there food from somewhere else...

- think your not -buying tshirt = revolutionary behavior + workers starving = one step closer to revolution.

THe workers wont starve until LOTS of people aren't buying sweat tshirts - and when LOTS of people aren't buying sweat tshirts -> then its a revolution.

YES buying a cheaper warehouse sweatshop shirt is better at $3 than buying a rip curl/nike shirt for $80, but not buying them will nto fix anything. buying them will ALSO not fix anything, government intervention woudl fix it, but no governments do intervene. we studied this in geography this year at uni.


ahjahahahhahahahahahahha brilliant.

You're so fuckn defeatist- or maybe lazy (mutter mutter, youf of today, no fuckin initiative, in my day we had to screenprint on dinosaur hide, etc etc)

Make informed consumer choices-consumer choice is powerful- otherwise there wouldn't be Fairtrade coffee, tea, chocolate etc- Do you think companies like Nescafe and Starbucks are doing fairtrade lines out of the goodness of their squishy corporate hearts? Fuck No!!!
There are NZ made Tshirt companies out there- there's one in Temuka (Temuka tees I think). Or buy and print op shop shirts, then you are recycling AND not supporting sweatshop labour.

HARD OUT

Something that struck me today was I was drying out a soymilk carton for another use on the bench and my flatmate came and chucked it in the bin. I asked what he was doing and he replied that it says on the pack that tetrapacks can only be recycled in Australia. I would rate him as a pretty aware guy and it just made me go whoah, there are waaaaaaay more ways of recycling than just putting empties in your blue bin every week.

Most of their stock in imported from China but they do some NZ made stuff although it's way more expensive.

Cloud used to actually make the clothes themselves until a few years ago when it became too expensive and they changed from manufacturing to importing and distribution only.

My next door neighbour at my old house wouldn't reuse anything. She just had this thing about it being unhygienic to wear clothes that used to belong to someone else. Also the amount of cheap, mass produced plastic crap she would buy her kids was phenomenal. It takes more effort for people to reduce and reuse than to chuck their empty bottles in the recycling bin every week.

Also, is there nothing that can be used as a mordant for spray paint?

Dammit. I had a little bet going with myself that it would have been Blair who revived this thread. Shame.
