She Asked, Does ShopJustice sell Fair Trade Clothing?

She asked me this question, looking through the catalog of inappropriately skimpy clothing for girls who haven’t had their first period. She pointed at the “tribal-inspired fashion” and said she would especially like some of those bandeau tops for her daughter, but wanted to “save the planet” too.

As my wife asked open questions and tried not to wince, I did a little research, being pretty sure of the answer already: it’s a mall chain store, after all, and that’s almost never a good sign. The answer is no, of course. Not one of ShopJustice’s pieces of clothing is either made in the USA or certified Fair Trade.

She asked, and maybe you’re asking too, as J. Clifford did a few years back. No, ShopJustice has nothing to do with Justice.
