WHERE AM I WEARING?
A Global Tour to the Countries, Factories, and People That Make Our Clothes
Meeting factory managers and public relations flacks, but also garment workers and their families, a young American journalist travels from Honduras to Bangladesh to Cambodia to China, connecting the labels on his jeans and boxers to the people who make them. A visit to a fair-trade Ethiopian shoe factory, final discussion questions, and a note from adult Kelsey to his high school self prompt deeper consideration of what it means to be an engaged consumer.
