What is Globalization?
Types of Globalization
Problem: Hollister is a large company, and many students wear their clothing, but it's become a way to stereotype people. Their clothing has become part of our culture, and if a student doesn't wear their clothing, they can be picked on for it.
Solution: If we lower the price of Hollister clothing, more people can afford their clothing, and it will help lower the amount of students getting picked on for their clothing.
The following link shows how through globalization, all cultures will blend into one.
Problem: Technology has made it possible to create fabrics in factories and labs, which hurts our environment.
Solution: In order to save our environment, we should create a way to make an environment friendly lab to create fabrics. We could also try and create a fabric using less chemicals to even better the environment. Using the technology we have, we should be able to use this solution to better our technology and better the environment.
Problem: Hollister is a large company that sells their clothing for very high prices. This way Hollister has more money to pay their employees, but their high prices make it hard for everyday people to afford Hollister's clothing for their children, and kids want the Hollister logo on the clothing, because it's what everyone else has, and the kids want to fit in too.
The following link shows how globalization affects the world's economy, and how businesses can affect globalization.
Problem: Theses all-weather jackets are 100% nylon, and nylon is a chemical that is made in factories. All of the pollution from the factories is hurting the environment.
Solution: If the jackets are made using a combination of nylon and other fabrics there will be less nylon made in factories and therefore help the environment.
