First, I'm grateful for any book that discusses the cruelty of sweatshops, chemicals, and other evils of clothing. Caring people need to stop giving money to clothing manufacturers and stores that sell sweatshop-made clothing that's filled with chemicals. But most people seem to be unaware of this.
I love the book, "Killer Clothes," because it goes all the way into the importance of wearing cruelty free and sustainable clothing. I was hoping for more information from this book, since the author is in the clothing industry. I think the difference is that the Killer Clothes authors are healers who live at a retreat, so they wear more casual clothing, while the Wear No Evil author seems to be very metropolitan and fashion-conscious, so she cuts corners on sustainability and uses (and recommends) clothing that are based upon cruelty such as sweatshops or animal skins.
Unfortunately, "Wear No Evil" has some tragic recommendations, such as wearing Nike clothing. Why would she recommend Nike, when you can watch the horrible Nike sweatshop videos on YouTube?
She also recommends wearing leather, cashmere, and wool without any mention of the horrible truths behind these items.
The book seems geared for those who want to be "faux eco-friendly," also known as green-washing. Which is still better than no eco-friendly at all.
