When they learn the truth, people rediscover their humanity. Support the Fashion Revolution.

“Every day, you affect someone’s life because you get dressed. And what you buy to wear can actually make a difference,” Andrea Paltzer wrote in a blog post for Fashion Revolution. “It can have a huge social impact. Fashion can be an answer to poverty. It should not be the cause of poverty and environmental destruction.”

If you would like to support our campaign and help to build a better future for everyone in the global fashion supply chain, please donate via the following link:

Even donating €2 will help make a difference.

“What’s better at being a wheel than … a wheel?

“That is not a rhetorical question or a Zen kōan or the start to an awesome joke (sorry). Inventor David Patrick, an avid skateboarder, stumbled (or, you know, skated) onto a way to reinvent the wheel as something that he claims is better than the tradition cylindrical model — something faster, more stable, and more ground-gripping. Its inspiration, Patrick says, ‘came from a cube.’ He calls his creation the ‘SharkWheel,’ and he has patented the invention — and is now raising money for its production on Kickstarter. (A week into the campaign, the modified wheel has taken in almost double the amount of its original $10,000 funding goal.)”

“Gas stations aren’t pretty, especially the stark, utilitarian ones that sit just off the highway with their filthy bathrooms and broken vending machines. But a handful of stops along an Amsterdam roadway got a glowing renovation. Literally.”

Seattle Food Forest

Forget meadows. The city’s new park will be filled with edible plants, and everything from pears to herbs will be free for the taking.

Seattle’s vision of an urban food oasis is going forward. A seven-acre plot of land in the city’s Beacon Hill neighborhood will be planted with hundreds of different kinds of edibles: walnut and chestnut trees; blueberry and raspberry bushes; fruit trees, including apples and pears; exotics like pineapple, yuzu citrus, guava, persimmons, honeyberries, and lingonberries; herbs; and more. All will be available for public plucking to anyone who wanders into the city’s first food forest.
