Good company, bad company
Quite often you read about companies or shops doing ‘good’ and ‘bad’ things, like recycling materials or using sweatshops. It’s quite hard to keep track of this. So for myself I decided to make a list of products I care about and what I learn about the companies that sell them. It’s a personal list that will never be complete, but that’s not the goal.
- Other lists and organisations that help determining good and bad things about companies
- Fair Wear Foundation
- Bad or questionable raw materials
- Angora wool. Often plucked in a violent way from live rabbits (source: Tros TV Kassa, 2013/11/25)
- Sheep wool is sometimes bad, e.g. when mulesing is involved.
- Fur. Fur animals are bred only for their skin, which is worse than leather. Fur can be imitated quite succesfully using synthetic materials
- Silk. Silkworms are boiled alive
