Human Trafficking- And What We Can Do To Help

Human Trafficking- And What We Can Do To Help

Human Trafficking- And What We Can Do To Help
I don’t know why, but I have always felt moved by human sex trafficking. I grew up in East Tennessee and sex trafficking was never really a topic of conversation. It wasn’t until my adolescence that I discovered what human trafficking really was. I thought to myself, "How can this really be happening?"It was hard for someone like me to believe that something this cruel really exist. To me- that is one of the worst things that happens on this earth. I could not imagine being on either side of that situation.
I’ve always wanted to help in some way. I never thought that saving clothing from the land fields correlated with human trafficking. Like, how does that go together, I should be planting trees or something. 
I was speaking with my friend Natalia one day, and she said to me, "Morgan how does it not make sense? Do you not take used, worn, beat up clothing give them a second chance making them beautiful again? Is that not what these women are going through? Do they not feel worn, beat up, tattered, and torn?"
These are reasons why I love my friend Natalia. She is talented in many ways, but speaking to people is her number one gift. She is a one of a kind- rare soul and truly an inspiring woman. You can follow her here... 

Another friend of mine is Cheryl Brehm. Cheryl is a gorgeous woman and you might hate her for that! (Just kidding) When you get to know her- her beauty is just as bright on the inside as it is on the outside. And I mean SHE SHINES! She is a supermodel, a superstar, and she is passionate about human trafficking.  She helps in so many ways and volunteers endlessly. One of the organizations that she works with is End Slavery Tennessee.
End Slavery Tennessee promotes healing of human trafficking survivors. It’s really scary and cringing to your soul to think about human trafficking... and you might think about this only happening overseas. NOPE! Did you know that it happens next door?
Their website says that human trafficking occurs in every city, every county and every ZIP Code in middle Tennessee. Don’t be blind to what’s happening in the world we live in. There are a red flags and warning signs that you can be on the lookout for and they have a hotline that you can find here. Tennessee is ranked among the top 20 states for the number of people who are trafficking according to the National Humane Trafficking Hotline!!!! Don't believe me? You can read an article that was posted October 8, 2021 about 15 men being charged with commercial sex trafficking… Guys that happened just the other day.

Trans seasonal Fashion- How you can wear The Morgan Factory all year round

What is trans seasonal fashion and why is it crucial?

Here at The Morgan Factory, many of our clothes are trans seasonal fashion pieces. This means that you can wear them year round

Not only is trans seasonal fashion extremely functional and financially savvy. It's also extremely beneficial to the environment!

By filling your closet with items that you can wear every season, you end up consuming less, and needing less clothes!

50 years ago, clothing brands were known to have 4 seasons - fall, winter, spring, and summer. 

With the industrial revolution, fast fashion companies created at tactic to push consumerism and the need to constantly update one's wardrobe - micro seasons

There are now not 4, but 52 seasons per year. That's a lot of clothes. That's a lot of resources. That's a lot of negative environmental impact

Fashion corporations create new styles rapidly, so that your current clothes go out of style. This encourages us to feel the need to buy new, cheap clothes, constantly. 

We believe the clothes you wear shouldn't just be worn a month or two out of the year. We create clothes that can be styled & layered for every season. 

While yes, fast fashion may be cheaper and more affordable in the moment, you end up needing to buy more frequently because of the sub par quality of materials it's made out of. 

Buying good quality, transeasonal pieces, are an investment in your wardrobe, and an investment in the environment!

So next time you're shopping and you pick out a piece, think to yourself "is this a good quality piece that I can layer, and wear for a majority of the year... or is this fast, fleeting, fashion, that is going to disintegrate and go out of style in a month?.."

In the upcoming weeks, we are going to be launching a series that shows how to style each of our Morgan pieces for every season!

"If circular fashion isn't the fashion of the future, there might not be one"

Fast fashion produces an overwhelming amount of waste each year. The effects that this industry is having on the environment is both dentrimental and toxic.

As Thanksgiving approaches, it's common to reflect on the things that we are grateful for. 

While it's important to reflect on all in which we're thankful for this season, it's imperative that we don't forget the true history that allowed us to become American citizens to begin with.
