    you're folding laundry is to make a tally of countries where your clothes are manufactured.  It really brings the point home.

    This is also a great social studies assignment for middle and high schoolers.  Write down the names of 5-10 countries where your clothes were made, place them on a map, and compare their per capita income/birth and death rates/education rates etc. to the United States.  Frankly, you could base an entire college course on this question.
