No worries, I didn't get the sense you were lashing out at all compared to some of the other comments so far ha!

After re-reading what I wrote, I can see how some might interpret this framework as advocating unsustainable practices. It's admittedly easy to abuse and you have to go the extra mile to vet your supplier if you don't want to fall into that trap.

The other factor I should mentioned is that retailers in the US typically charge $40 for a swimsuit, whereas these guys managed to get swimsuits to customers for $12 each. I don't know if that helps frame it as less scammy, but I figure more context always helps.

Like you mentioned, I think the US is definitely more capitalism oriented than other countries around the world, so I always appreciate viewpoints from different perspectives. Thanks for sharing!
