  2. People don’t really care. They only care that people think they care.

  3. I’m tired of companies using this as an excuse, then consumer shaming when they’re caught doing this shit. the onus is on the companies making these products to not destroy the world in the process.

  4. Supply Chain Audits is the way to go to protect the environment. Similar to ISO 9001 quality assurance where each company is responsible for auditing their subvendors and so on. – lead by an ANSI certified org. This creates a chain of compliance.

    This should be the law instead of putting it on consumers or reporters to find out. But it will take us all pushing to get it done.

  5. I always thought the name “amazon” for that particular company was a sort of tongue in cheek dark joke…

  6. Why would they? Most wouldn’t care beyond the perceived quality and price of the product.

    The smarter ones may even read the labels and have some sense of any safety issues. But i bet a large majority don’t care and don’t know where an item is made.

  7. People buying shit that is made from harming the earth. I am shocked. What next? Trickle down economics is proven to only make Billionaires?
