Zero Waste Clothing — The Next Step in Environmentally Friendly Fashion

Fashion: the second dirtiest industry in the world.

There’s been quite the buzz around zero waste over the last few years — and for good reason. As consumerism continues to mount worldwide, so is our trash and pollution problem. Oceans and waterways are clogged with ever increasing garbage, while massive landfills are unable to keep up with the sheer amount of refuge thrown their way. In response, up-cycling movements have been slowly, but steadily, gaining momentum throughout Europe, and now in the United States and Canada as well.

Wind-Powered Device Pulls Up to 10 Gallons of Pure Drinking Water a Day — From Thin Air

In the West, it’s easy to take our access to clean water for granted. With modern plumbing, fresh water is at our fingertips with the turn of the tap. But in many developing countries, pollution and waterborne diseases are an unfortunate reality. Around the world, 1.1 billion people do not have access to safe drinking water, and 2.6 billion suffer from inadequate sewage. Women spend hours of their day collecting water from distant and oftentimes polluted sources. Every minute a child dies of a water-related illness. More than 840,000 people die each year from diseases related to tainted water.

India’s Organic Rice Revolution Proves GMOs Are Unnecessary

In a world with an ever-increasing human population, increased food production is of obvious concern. With the world population projected to reach 9.6 billion by 2050, many people, especially those with connections to biotechnology and agrochemical companies, say that genetically modified food (GMO) is necessary in order to satisfy increased global demand for food.

How a “No-Till” Method Can Grow Vegetable and Fruit Gardens Without Irrigation, Fertilizer or Gruelling Labour

Food self-sufficiency is a hot topic in the U.S. and beyond. As our industrial agricultural system begins to crumble, poisonous conventional farming methods are brought to light and the crisis of our depleted topsoil looms ominously.

Why Working Less is Essential for True Wealth and Sustainability

Consumerism goes hand-in-hand with the “the good life” — at least according to our contemporary Western culture. Massive advertising, securing the bargain, garage sales and credit cards are simply par for the course and rarely questioned by the average person. Shopping during our lunch hour is a national pastime, we wander through shopping malls on our days off, and make online purchases late at night.

So does that mean that living longer isn’t sustainable? Should we, in fact, feel pangs of guilt for making diet, lifestyle and health management choices that will help us to live longer, healthier, happier lives? We say: absolutely not!
