Via the ever-thoughtful and interesting Rebekah of Jaunty Dame and her mama (Thanks, Mama Jaunty!), T-Shirt Travels is the story of what happens to all the clothing given away to charity that doesn’t end up in the op-shops.
Many of us are passionate thrifters who believe in reusing and recycling clothing. But that same clothing is a symptom of much larger problems of economic policy, heath care, education and human rights in countries like Zambia. While charity clothing is not the source of the problems, it is a compounding factor and it’s important we know as much of the story as we can.
