Where it starts
Once it gets to Avenida Mirador Sur, Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic, the jeans are cut.
Then, the garment boards a plane and is shipped to Ouanaminthe Arrondissement, Haiti, where the jeans are sown.
Lastly, the jeans are flown back to the Dominican Republic where they're finished.

Globalization and Problems
Globalization is tied into the four categories below, and it is what a product goes through. It affects different things, for better or for worse.
Economics: Economics is amount of money is paid to workers and companies. Problem: While the companies are practically rolling in money, people in India and China are paid dirt, causing them to live in extreme poverty.
Technology: Technology is the machines and advertising that make and show off the product. Problem: Machines and computers are taking over people's jobs, causing people to lose money.
Culture: Culture is how the product changes culture in different countries. Problem: We are Western-izing other countries.
Environment: Environment is how the Earth is affected by the manufacturing. Problem: Pollution causes the air in China to be toxic to breathe and physically thick.
Technology: Some technology is far more advanced, replacing the people. If they stick to the older technology, people in America, like cotton farmers, could keep their jobs. This could work as it also help with economics. This works because more jobs are kept, and more money is produced which helps a lot of people. Also, if a machine breaks, they have to check all of them to find the broken one, while if it's just a person, they can reteach them.
Culture: What could happen to help our problem is that people to be more open minded to different cultures and types of people. Then, Westernization of different countries would lessen substantially. This could work as the workers could save most of their money to get out of extreme poverty, as they come over here and buy our things most of the time.
Environment: Factories learning how to safely produce products without harmful chemicals and pollution would help tremendously. This could work because that stops air pollution, like the pollution that China has.
