GuoGuangJun AKA The Bubblebum man.
1.5 years ago since we met, I was in search for A costume shop to make me something for a show, He was the main tailor who worked for a lady who treated him unfairly and under paid him.
With over 42 years of tailoring expertise under his belt he has worked for various types of clothing manufacturers,including a prison in china for 15 of those years making uniforms for prisoners.
everytime I walked into that shop he would be smiling from ear to ear regardless of the amount of work she had given him. I use to joke to him saying we should start a business together, he would say why don’t we? I told him I didn’t know how. He sent me to one of the biggest fabric markets in Beijing. I felt nervous buying all this fabric but I trusted his word. I hated paying this lady when I knew he would only be getting a small fraction for his hard work. When I returned to China for the third time I received a message from GuoGuangJun saying that he no longer works for that lady and he now works for himself.He insisted I come over for dinner so we could talk more.
Our business is growing and I am happy I can help give GuoGuangJun the freedom to work from his own home, I hope to give him more business that he doesn’t need to go back and work in that costume shop again. We communicate in chinese and when we first met I could barely understand him with his strong Dialect, with his patience he has helped me learn everything from fabrics to running a business. If it wasn’t for this legend, MyBubblebum wouldn’t of been born. Guoguangjun is 62 and I was worried he might want to retire soon, but he laughs at me and thinks I’m mad… heres to many more years with the main man. Join the fashion revolution and start asking…. #whomademyclothes .

✨✨ Well this is @caselka / @colscious, my talented, inspiring and very high achiever. Sharing because he recently started an ethical clothing brand that I'm super proud of and wanted everyone to see ✨✨
Let's talk girl boss! I've always wanted to have my own business but there's just so many ideas I have and I literally have no idea which to go with or where to start
I feel like I haven't found that one true thing/product that I have enough passion for to put all my energy and money into
I love meeting like minded people and being inspired by their passion and drive. I wish I was decisive enough to just have an idea and run with it. We live and we learn hopefully I'll find my path soon enough
There is no doubt plastic is a big issue. But it's not the biggest. Climate change and biodiversity are. Overfishing contributes to both. "A study in the journal Marine Policy suggests plastic pollution might be reaching a planetary boundary, a term used to describe safe operational environmental limits within which the world can continue to function safely.
Yet, for all the attention given to ocean plastic, it is not the biggest threat to the marine environment. Both climate change and biodiversity loss (much of which is caused by the impacts of overfishing of our oceans) were shown to have exceeded their respective planetary boundaries when the term was first introduced, in 2009. More recent studies also flag CLIMATE CHANGE and BIODIVERSITY as the two CORE planetary boundaries. Excessively exceeding these for a prolonged period could cause rapid and major changes, such as runaway temperature rises or the collapse of important ecosystem functions."
#overfishing (which severely impacts biodiversity) must be addressed ASAP, before it's too late

Let’s #Change ...#Tupac Shakur
Come on come on
I see no changes wake up in the morning and I ask myself
Is life worth living should I blast myself?
I'm tired of bein' poor and even worse I'm black
My stomach hurts so I'm lookin' for a purse to snatch
Cops give a damn about a negro
Pull the trigger kill a nigga he's a hero
Give the crack to the kids who the hell cares
One less hungry mouth on the welfare
First ship 'em dope and let 'em deal the brothers
Give 'em guns step back watch 'em kill each other
It's time to fight back that's what Huey said
Two shots in the dark now Huey's dead
I got love for my brother but we can never go nowhere
Unless we share with each other
We gotta start makin' changes
Learn to see me as a brother instead of two distant strangers
#lets learn to see each other as brothers & sisters for new week to beginning #letsexplore new horizon and make conscious decision in our way #welive and our way #weeat it’s just a question of us being more conscientious throughout our #wishes as we only have limitations of resources #letsnotbethenewslave in this new wave of capitalising let’s be #ethical#buyconsciousbuyless for living this #space to #nextgeneration#timetochange that’s the way it’s 💋
