The yak is a long-haired herd animal found in the mountainous regions of Central Asia. This large, stocky animal has long curved horns and their hair has traditionally been used for various purposes. The outer hair has been used to make waterproof ropes and tents, while the soft inner down has been used for apparel and blankets. When a group of university students visited Western China in search of inspiration to start a social enterprise, they had no idea they would wind up building a fashion empire revolving around the magical yak.

With a passion for fashion and as an advocate for “recycle, reuse,” Jillian – the daughter of a man whose company designs, fabricates, installs, and maintains signs in the New York area – began to wonder what happens to all the billboards once they are taken down. Since they feature so many unforgettable, innovative colors and images, she thought, couldn’t they be used creatively in some other way?

In the past, we wrote about EveryOne hand soaps, which come in an array of wonderful natural fragrances. There is no way to choose just one (you would be missing out). Just recently we discovered that EveryOne, the brand from Small World Trading Company which offers healthy, natural and organic personal care products for everyone and every body in the family, has several products geared specifically towards men. With Father’s Day coming up, we jumped on the opportunity to test these out for eco-Dads across the globe.

One of the main difficulties sustainable fashion designers encounter is in gaining access to 100% organic fabrics. So, when I heard the company Organic Cotton Colours - FOX FIBRE has decided to make it easier for fashion designers to have access to these types of materials, I did not hesitate to visit Santi Mallorquí, the new CEO of Organic Cotton Colours in Santa Cristina d'Aro (Girona, Catalunya), so he could tell me about the company's recent decision in greater detail.

 
Greenpeace Fashion Detox Manifesto Campaign

The ‘Fashion Detox Manifesto’ was started by Greenpeace back in 2011. The campaign came into fruition after a year long investigation, which the organization culminated into their ‘Dirty Laundry: Unraveling the Corporate Connections to Toxic Water Pollution in China ’ report. This report brings attention to hidden links between textile manufacturing facilities in China that emit hazardous chemicals into the water, and international brands like Adidas and Nike. Those two popular brands were the first to be challenged by Greenpeace to sign their detox manifesto and urge their suppliers to eliminate all toxic, persistent and hormone-disrupting chemicals from their products and production processes. It’s estimated that 17-20% of the world’s industrial water pollution comes from the dyeing and treatment of textiles.

 
Bags with a Mission

There are many ways in which fashion can be sustainable: simplifying, it can be produced using eco-materials (organic, recycled, vegan..) and/or be ethically produced, with respect for the people and the environment. But there's another dimension that some brands go through, and that entails for the product or line to have a philanthropic purpose. This means that collections are made following the principles just explained, but then a part of profits goes to fund humanitarian projects. I discovered many small objects are involved in this cause, like bags. These items are mostly sold online and for this reason a bag is generally easier to manage than garments, because you don't need to size it, it is easier to incorporate into your wardrobe and, above all, «every woman wants and "needs" more than one» as confessed to me by Megan Reilly Cayten, co-founder of the Catrinka Project, together with Sumana Setty and Amisha Patel.

 

 
Swapdom: Reducing Textile Waste
Written by Swapdom - Wednesday, 21 May 2014

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), a whopping 13.1 million tons of textile waste are sent by Americans to landfills every year (and that’s a stat from 2011!). While some of this waste is recovered for recycling and export, rescued and reused material only totals about 14% of clothes and shoes sent to the trash. Textile waste is a big problem. If this is news to you, you’re in good company, as almost 80% of Americans have no idea clothing waste is a problem in such dire need of addressing.
