who knew

I was at Forever 21 today and was surprised to see them selling organic t-shirts. On their website, they sell six different styles (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6). I know this is a bit hypocritical since I shop there on occasion, but it seems a bit strange to see a mass-produced brand selling organic clothing ... especially when they're imported. Which, to me, kind of cancels out the purpose of selling organic clothing in the first place (producing it in your own country so that it cuts back on the amount of fossil fuels used to transport the goods). Numbers 1 & 2 are made in the USA (they're part of the Heritage 1981 line), but who knows under what conditions. But oh well; I guess it's a nice cheap organic option.
