    The conditions of workers are extremely important. It's not only a question of whether their factories safe, but whether people are earning a living wage, what are their working hours, and how many bathroom breaks do they get in a day, and more.

    But it's equally (if not more) important to take a Slower view, in this case by looking at OURSELVES: The bigger question we all need to ask is how our individual habits of consumption are contributing to such abominable events as the one in Bangladesh this week.
