club monaco, continued...and others
nothing new today. needed to replace the old picture. so i did. mainly in protest against club monaco (and i suppose, other corporations while i'm at it). thus, all the club monaco pictures.
seriously, indirectly and directly, these retail corporations are trying--and doing very well--to mould their consumers and customers into their product image. so, you too would sell and advertise for them.
freely. willingly. ignorantly.
of course, this is just common sense. but is it so much common sense if people that realize this do nothing? and join into this "fad". wait, i can't even say "fad" if it is here to stay. we can stop this though. the "fad", that is. stop wearing the labels.
but who's going to do that?
i can't say that i have. however, i don't shop for any label in particular. i merely buy what is the cheapest possible that is of fairly decent quality. in addition, i aim to shop canadian.
thus, i propose that people should follow the "buy nothing day". self-explanatory. Please find out more at Adbusters "Buy Nothing Day"
the point is--as probably everyone knows yet i would like to reiterate once more--when you shop at such retail corporations like club monaco you are not only purchasing and supporting their "image", but also conforming
into their label and image. all merely for the "bottom line"
. (Please refer to True Cost Economics: http://adbusters.org/metas/eco/truecosteconomics/
you have become one of them.
on another note, sadia

kudos to you, sadia
