Follow Your Stuff
Landmark 20 (Plan and Conduct a Project)
Grade 6/7 students researched the complex journey of their t-shirts from production to their doorsteps. They read a book called “Follow Your Stuff” and watched a video on the lifecycle of a t-shirt and learned that there are many environmental, health, and socioeconomic concerns evident in each stage of production. They listed ways that they could reduce their environmental impact (donating/buying second-hand clothes, repurposing as rags or new clothing items, limiting what they purchase, finding textile drop-off bins, etc.
