Cognitive consumers is a vision of a web platform that serves to give quality resources, information, and research to readers about topics related to clothing and textiles. The idea is to deliver objective content in short yet informative articles. The content will serve standalone as a resource for improving a consumer’s relationship through an education of materials, industry practices, as well as the impact hidden in the consumption of these products. This being done through a series of twenty-four periodically released articles of various foci.

The goal behind the platform would be to reach as much of an audience as possible. By existing as a patch of online real estate, there is no limit to the number of lives potentially impacted. By driving more informed consumers, we can vote for the companies and practices that are positive for present and future generations.
