I find it interesting that you reference the American federal minimum wage when the company is Canadian. Unfortunately, the majority of sustainable alternatives that are locally produced here are equally or more expensive.

That being said, I really appreciated this article. I was actually surprised by a lot of the information you shared. Lululemon has always been a brand that is well regarded in Canada, primarily for the durability of its products. I wasn't really aware of the negative impacts of their fabrics or Wilson's behaviour, so I'll definitely be looking for more sustainable alternatives next time I'm buying activewear.
