Stories of Impact

Stories of new scientific research on human flourishing that translate these basic discoveries into practical tools.

Nov 1, 2022

Today’s episode is all about the impact we can have when we make informed, ethical choices. It can be nearly impossible as a consumer to know where your clothes are coming from and to ensure that they were ethically and sustainably produced, from the spinner of the cloth to the dyer of the fabric to the person sewing the garment together. This is why Dr. Robert Handfield and Dr. MD Rejaul Hasan of North Carolina State University Poole College of Management are creating an Ethical Apparel Index, which will create transparency around apparel manufacturing for both consumers and investors. They’re hoping the EAI will promote human rights in the garment supply chain around the world.
