Note: Melissa mentions the 5 Worst Industries for forced labor. We are having a hard time finding the exact article, but there is plenty of articles on the chocolate industry, fashion, coffee, and technology/mining industries. We "think" the fifth industry is probably agriculture/fishing. The UN reports that 71% of child labour is in the agriculture industry.
As you know, we usually end the show talking about recent and upcoming purchases. We chatted for so long. So, I took that out! Melissa's latest purchase was still her awesome Rothy's. Kara purchased a pair of Root Collective boots. Melissa is looking into a new pair of short boots and tall boots for Kara. I see a shoe theme for us!!
We will be back NEXT WEEK with a new episode!!
