Lately I’ve found myself with a conundrum. In short: I needed new jeans and socks, but am looking now for products not only made sustainably, but also fairly, with fair wages and safe working conditions. I was a consumer on a mission, and finding the products I wanted turned out to be easier than I imagined.
As I mentioned in my last entry, I’m currently finishing my first class of the block schedule at the Duke Marine Lab: Conservation and Development. A requirement for the course has been to find an app related to the topics we’ve discussed in class. Most of the apps we’ve found have centered on green consciousness: environmental awareness and “going green.” I was surprised with how many fascinating tools have been developed and would like to share them with you.
