Silence Speaks Volumes

I started this project thinking I would likely get a mix of honest answers and spin back from companies whom I asked specific questions about where their products are made.  So far I have had some great answers and feed back from two companies and one telling me they are looking into the answers.

What I did not expect was radio silence. I am amazed that I have heard nothing back from both large chains and from small local shops.  It has been over a week since I sent a batch of emails and I am going to have to rethink how I go about this project.  It was not my intent to name and shame – but it is starting to look like that is what I might have to do.   I really hope that the bar does not have to be set at – will respond to basic questions about where their products are made.  As consumers – we deserve to know.

The list of companies contacted who responded:

  • Miz Mooz (responded immediately)
  • Twiss and Weber (responded immediately)
  • Marks Work Warehouse (looking into the issue)

The list of companies contacted who have not responded:

  • Flock Boutique
  • Joe Fresh
  • Le Chateau
  • Columbia

I will be sending out another batch of emails this week to another group of stores.  Hopefully I will have more luck.
