Free Yourself from Corporate Power

This is the third part in a five part series of posts from Yes! Magazine on Freeing Yourself from Corporate Power. We've already covered food and entertainment. On to clothes.

We know that many clothes are made in sweatshops, right? Not just in China, Mexico, or Indonesia, but right here in the U.S.

Good Choose union- and U.S.-made clothing.

Better Make your own, patch holes, buy secondhand. Avoid big brand
names.

I mostly buy secondhand, but am trying to buy only sweatshop free clothes when they need to be new (e.g., underwear).
