Globalization

Globalization is the tendency of products and businesses to be spread throughout the world.

Production

Originally, Dr. Martens were made in England, but are now made in a mix of Vietnam, China, and Thailand.

Natural Resources

Since these boots were made from vegan leather, they aren't as natural as a cow. They are made with petroleum based liquid and vinyl, along with other materials. This petroleum most likely came from oil fields between Scotland and Norway.

Problems

Environment: The Polyurethane used in vegan leather is harmful to the environment. It pollutes the air.

Technological: Processing this leather causes pollution.

Cultural: Chemicals given off by the materials cause some forms of cancer.

Economic: This may cause the price of leather to fall because of how much cheaper vegan leather is.

Solution

Instead of using the harmful chemicals in vegan leather, people could use kelp, bark, cork, or other bases for the leather.

Pros and Cons of Globalization

Pros: This allows for many countries' economies' to thrive by exporting their goods.


Cons: Shipping these products over seas and all the different types of machinery used to create items causes them to sky rocket in price.

Globalization in Relation to me

Globalization relates to me because my father travels for his company, which sells products all around the world.


I also bought these boots in a local mall which traveled all the way from Vietnam to the shoe store, Journey's.
