Third Quarter Membership Meeting Update

Thanks to all who were able to join us for our quarterly general membership teleconference! As Dr. Mary O’Reilly’s presentation highlighted, please continue to consider how your clothing is manufactured when purchasing new items. The average American discards ~80 pounds of clothing each year. Workers in the textile industry who manufacture clothing in low- and middle-income countries may be subjected to long hours, repetitive work, awkward postures, poor ventilation, and low or no pay. Dr. O’Reilly has developed partnerships with organizations such as Remake and Adalinda in order to help promote safe and sustainable fashion.
