The one theme that was heard throughout the presentation was education and action. The importance of each speakers desire to inform and create action in the public to the challenges facing the persons unseen but that work to make our clothes, the effects on the environment, and the long-term effects of our chosen behavior to busy without considering the larger change on us as humans, the animals, and the planet overall.

So the next time you go to purchase that next pair of jeans or jacket, ask yourself these three questions, do I need it, how was it made, and who made it? These are questions we should ask each time we go shopping. Let’s begin today creating this change. Great event!
