FORT Dungarees were born out of a love for simple design and production. They believe that what you wear is an expression of yourself, so they strive to express respect and celebration of their fellow man and the environment through their clothes.
Behind the Black Collection:
The Black FORT Dungarees are made in a fair trade certified facility located in Dharamsala in the foothills of the Indian Himalayas. Dharamsala is the political and spiritual capital for Tibetan refugees, and home to the Dalai Lama. The facility was first founded to help Tibetan refugees find work but now employs over 50 staff, spanning Tibetan, Nepalese and Indian cultures.
The facility produces clothes that are in line with their core values; fairness, sustainability and balance. It is fair trade certified under the Indian Fair Trade Association. Fair wages are paid, proper holidays are given and a real sense of community is felt there. We want to make what’s behind our clothes visible and celebrated.
The facility is working towards becoming a zero-waste facility and the future’s looking bright….Find out more on Fort’s website.

It’s my first week at a university and I’m about to meet with a professor for a one-on-one writing session.

I have always known that my life accumulates more waste than it should, especially now, when we all have to change the way we live if we want to keep this planet habitable. But I didn’t really know just how much waste I was contributing until I began to take stock of all the plastic around me. In short, I am surrounded by plastic packaging. I live in a palace of plastic and I never even realized it.
I feel unstuck in two key areas of my life after 20 years of struggling, and I wanted to share how this happened. The areas are weight and clutter. Let’s start with clutter and I will share more about weight loss in another post. I do not have a lot of clutter. I am like […]
