Facemasks in the new Gnome store is fun!

But, this is yet another store with merch for a good cause that don't say anything about how their stuff is produced.

Since the clothing industry is terrible, with inhumane, dangerous conditions, even slavery, and terrible environmental impacts, I just don't understand why so many take so lightly on this. Ethical conditions aren't even expensive. I won't support slavery, so I can't buy merch I don't know how is produced.

That's why I love @aptgetshirt.

Trying to follow, but no luck. The search function on my instance does not find him, and using the Follow-button on his account I just get this error message.

Still, when writing his username in the tootbox here it shows up in a dropdown.

What's going on?
