Ethical Underwear

Share it Please

I read an article about a company in Sri Lanka that has made a radical change in an industry that has reportedly had a history of labor disputes, tough practices, long hours, unpleasant working conditions and so on. The new owners have introduced higher salaries, free breakfasts, eigh-hour workdays, on-site health clinics, on-the-job training on balancing their lives and work, and incentive programs. The results are incredible, for the workers and the industry. (Ode Magazine, March 2008)


Half way through the article I remembered a conversation with a friend about a company in Northern California that offers employees four hours a month company time to spend on any charitable volunteering, insentives to join a gym, encourages pets (cats, dogs, you name it) in the office and spectacular well being coverage, life insurance and more.


I am thinking today about the incredible power humans have to build, create, love and change.

Here is a blog about ethical fashion, including underwear

  1. This reminds me of a recent discussion with a good friend who resides in Scotland. She told me of recently instituted policies from the government, regarding employees of small business. Work Life Balance (anticipating everyone can find a rhythm to help them combine work with their other responsibilities or aspirations), and Family Friendly Policies (a specific type of policy and/or practice put in place primarily to help employees who have family and/or primary care commitments, or generally would like to spend more flexible time with their families).

    The result is extremely positive throughout Scotland both for employers and employees. That a government would promote such policies quite enthusiastically as opposed to “the bottom line” is really quite heartening. This and your examples seem for me to allude to the gracious blessing that perhaps we humans are really awakening to our true nature.

I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
