Julie Clawson needed a new bra. Most of the time she would have just gone to the store, plunked down some cash and come home with a bra. But she had been reading about globalization, sweatshops and child labor, and her conscience made her wonder where her money was going and what was being done with it. So she decided to try an experiment. She decided to find a “justice bra”—to make a purchase that could do no wrong. Did such a bra exist?
