    This is a big issue, bigger than we all realize. I did a research project that in part dealt with how to use textile/fashion design in a sustainable way and was shocked at how much clothing and textiles is thrown into the waste stream each year. (It comes to about 70lbs. of clothing per person, per year)

    I'm going to submit what I did to this ideas platform. Thanks for posting this article!

          From the SFGoodwill website ( : "Does Your Goodwill Chapter Use the Special Minimum Wage Certificate?"

          No, at SFGoodwill the services and job opportunities we provide don't call for the use of the certificate, nor will we consider using this tool in the future. The Special Minimum Wage Certificate is a tool that 3,500 U.S. employers, including some Goodwill chapters, use to create job opportunities for people with significant mental and physical disabilities. The Certificate, issued by the U.S. Department of Labor, allows an employer to compensate a disabled person according to the work they are able to perform. Each Goodwill chapter operates as a standalone nonprofit social enterprise with its own balance sheet, bylaws, and board of directors leadership. SFGoodwill supports the changes that need to happen within the Goodwill Industries International confederation for these types of program practices to be eliminated.
