I’ve done a bit of investigating ethical Free Software T-Shirts here in the past.
Even when they’re available, it seems a bit odd to buy a fairtrade t-shirt and then get it in plastic wrap and/or on a plastic hanger in a plastic bag. I also wonder about why and how it’s fairtrade, a sort of look behind the label desire.
Now Boxes of Fairtrade t-shirts are to be trialled in Midcounties Co-op stores – will it succeed and will we start to see more of this sort of packaging for ethical products? A cardboard comeback?
