Petition Tag - clothes
Dear Mr K-Mart,
I realise that you made a huge effort to reduce the cost of living for many many families by reducing your prices etc BUT sadly you have also made compromises on the quality and your goods now fail dismally!
Your clothes lose shape and fall apart and your sizing is all wrong, your kitchen implements break easy and in one case after being washed all the marked measurement disappeared. Your bathroom towels fray badly and simply don't last, I could go on and on but I am sure you get my point.... You have lost this customer and I know that you will continue to lose more BUT sadly those in serious financial hardship with be stuck in a bad rut and will keep you afloat because they will be forced to continually replace your poorly made products as they will not be able to go elsewhere.
Shame on you Mr K-Mart, shame on you for targeting low income families that are already doing it tough.
Here in Australia we're big - We accepted it a long time ago, but we need more fashionable clothes here in Australia for a BETTER PRICE! We have city chic, but really there clothes are too ridiculously priced, if there was another market for plus size women the price we pay for the clothes would go down.
So sign my petition to bring fashion to Australia!
The rise of sweatshops is at its highest with companies such as Nike, Old Navy, Banana Republic, and Wal-Mart. Cancers and other hazards to workers in sweathshops located in China, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Indonesia, and Phillippines are exposed. 90% of women are workers of sweatshops.
250 million children ages 2-14 are sacrificing educational needs to work in sweatshops for multi-million dollar companies. Children and women are exposed to pesticide poisoning and hazardous chemicals in sweatshops.
Help us stop the use of sweatshops GLOBALLY.
Well, about 3 years ago Abercrombie and Fitch and Hollister Co, Had a Different kind of clothing. Cute Frilly skirts with ribbons, Humorous T-Shirts and So forth.
But now it has changed. For the worst. Now they have Overpriced Dull clothing that's all the same.
Our school uniform is truly rubbish. It is a bottle green jumper (that we have to wear in winter whether we want to or not), a yellow and green tie (ew), black trousers or skirt, white shirt, and plain black shoes.
They are so strict on shoes that shoe shopping is even more of a nightmare for me, because I have very narrow feet, a half size, plus I don't wear real leather, so with all these extra unnecessary rules, it's an impossible task!
For some reason, the administration seems to think if we look "smart", we'll work better. This isn't true. If we're clever, we're clever. If we're not, we're not.
Another common excuse is that we won't get bullied for not having the latest trends. No one in my tutor group are that shallow. Actually we get bullied more for doing well at school. So are they saying we should all flunk so we don't get picked on? Or should we just ignore the bullies and carry on, in both cases? Duh.
And how are we supposed to make political statements with such a harsh dress code? If we can't just dress all in black and write "Greenpeace Rules 4Eva" on our T-Shirts, we'll be driven to do more drastic things, like shooting out windows with a BB gun. Not that I would ever do this, being ethically opposed to guns, but hey, it was an example. I'm sure other people have and will be driven to do things like this simply from having no other way to express themselves.
Please sign to show LLS how we feel about their oppressive dress code! Thanks!
I love GAP clothes.
www.gap.com is a great website, but why is it US only when the URL is printed on all GAP carrier bags worldwide?
I don't expect to get US prices (though that would be great!), but why is it so hard to set up a UK version of your site when the ranges are almost identical.
As we say in England - sort it out!
We've heard it a hundred times - obesity is a world epidemic, we're all getting larger, yada yada yada...
And with the increase in 'average' dress size, clothes are getting bigger and there are more stores selling clothes in 'bigger' sizes. A size 12 now is bigger than a size 12 a few years back - just to make people feel good.
Is this a bad thing? YES IT IS! I'm not anorexic or emaciated, I'm naturally petite. And small people like you and me - I'm talking size 6, 8 and 10 - are finding it harder to find clothes to fit.
In my shopping centre, only two high street shops stock size 6 clothes - Next and Bay Trading. In other stores (like Topshop and New Look), it's hard to find anything under a size 12.
So come on - WE'RE NOT ALL TALL AND FAT HERE! GIVE US CLOTHES THAT FIT SLIM/PETITE/SHORTER PEOPLE!

I'm sure many of you watched the recent taping of the Oprah Winfrey show
where her guest was Tommy Hilfiger. On the show, she asked him if the
statements about race he was accused of saying were true.
Statements like "...If I'd known African-Americans, Hispanics, Jewish
and Asians would buy my clothes, I would not have made them so nice. I
wish these people would *NOT* buy my clothes, as they are made for
upper class white people."
His answer to Oprah was a simple "YES". Whereafter she immediately asked him to leave her show.
My suggestion? Don't buy your next shirt or perfume from Tommy Hilfiger.
Let's give him what he asked for. Let's not buy his clothes, let's put
him in a financial state where he himself will not be able to afford
the ridiculous prices he puts on his clothes.
Please support this cause n sign.

85% of parents with children enrolled in the Yazoo county School systems voted against the rule that all children attending Yazoo County schools must wear school uniforms to school next year.
Most parents in Yazoo County are either poor or middle class and the expense of uniforms when they usually have to buy either off-brand clothes or second-hand clothes is just too much. Sending our children on field trips is expensive enough as it is when you have a hard enough time buying groceries and neccessities. Now the school board wants to add the extra expense of uniforms. The teachers voted 55% for uniforms. If the parents' votes were higher (85%), why did the school board vote to use uniforms against the parents' wishes? The children themselves will feel like just a number to the teachers with no individuality.
A child's clothing is an expression of his/her personality. I will not send my children to a school that infringes on their rights and the parents' pocket books with total disregard for the parent and child's feelings in this matter.
Come on! Help us.. We have freedom, but our rights to express ourselves are underestimated. Clothes express who we are everyday! We should be able to wear what we want to wear freely.
We have been wearing clothes for a long time and ever since the first clothing was made there have been people advertizing on it. Why should we the people advertize for these companies. They should either pay us or go without. It's unfair to think that we should pay for our clothes and then also advertize for them. How many of you right now look down and see Nike, Levi, or some other high power company's logo on your clothing, a lot of you right. Now, how many of you can say your gettting a check in the mail for the advertizing, not that many of you right. So, I say end this unfair, rip off of a deal, and say pay us or we're taking it off!
PNS is naked! ;)
Each holiday season Sophia my wife and I wanted to do many things to try and share the spirit of the season with needy families, children and abandoned elderly people we know of in our neighbourhood and at many other places. Sometimes we managed doing small things like organizing some old clothes, greeting cards, toys etc to be distributed.
