Studio III architects' Hero Wednesday: The World Behind a T-Shirt

And if one was hard pressed to call out the Hero here…I’d say it’s Planet Money and NPR for showing us just how out of touch we are with our consumption, others we share the world with, and one of the many immense issues to which we live oblivious… Without journalistic journeys like this one…not many of us stop to think about our actions and the world and lives they impact.
