How can you produce ethical skivvies? Tom Chappell, founder of Tom's of Maine, shows us with a tour of his LEED Gold-certified office and Rambler's Way farm. Situated in the picturesque Kennebunk, Maine, the farm produces wool undergarments for Chappell's newly launched ethical fashion brand Rambler's Way. We start in the basement and end on the farm:
