Get Your Eco-Friendly Fashion On

by @ Green Home Library

Of course you want to look good all the time and your choice of clothes certainly reflects that. However, the behind-the-scenes story of what, where and how your wardrobe is produced may be surprising, especially if you consider yourself a green supporter.

Get your Eco-Friendly fashion on by revamping what clothes and accessories you choose to purchase going forward. It is yet another opportunity to up your green game and literally walk the walk in the some sustainable shoes, shirts and more.

The Trickle Down

Choosing the right fabric is essential to Eco-Friendly fashion. The most popular fabrics are:

  • Cotton
  • Rayon
  • Wool
  • Oil-based synthetics: polyester, acrylic, nylon, spandex

It is however, oil-based synthetics like polyester that are at the top of the Eco-Unfriendly chain as they are derived from crude oil that requires high energy extraction and melting of plastic manufacturing. Plus, when these break down they are far from compostable as residue can leach into waterways and subsequently fertilizer which cycles into plants, livestock and you.

This trickle down effect shows the potential, slow, toxic environmental accumulation which, over time, is believed by some to indirectly be an underlying contributor to many cancers.

What Else Not to Choose

Revamping your wardrobe understandably takes time but eventually you may be able to swap out oil-based synthetics as well as other environmental drains such as:

  • Leather - Unethical treatment of animals as well as agricultural methane global warming contributor.
  • Rayon - Derived from wood pulp and threatens water conservation.
  • Non-Organic Cotton - Most pesticide intense crop and chemically treated material on the planet threatening humans and wildlife.
  • Polycotton - According to Green Choices, “virtually all polycotton (especially bedlinen), plus all ‘easy care’, ‘crease resistant’, ‘permanent press’ cotton, are treated with toxic formaldehyde (also used for flameproofing nylon).
  • Wool - Avoid wool from UK farms that use organophosphate sheep dip which creates serious hazards for both agricultural and craft workers.
  • Dyed - Avoiding dyed fabrics conserves water, reduces river/ocean pollution, and cuts down on heavy metal exposure.

Stick To

As you travel along your new Eco-Fashion path look for materials that tell a story. Many offer transparency advertising that tout various attributes including fair trade supported practices, organic manufacturing, recycled and sustainable materials usage.

Materials with a more sustainable footprint include:

  • Organic cotton
  • Organic wool
  • Hemp
  • Bamboo
  • Bagasse (from sugar cane)

You can also keep an eye out for clothing tags that show use of recycled-upcycled material saved from landfills, Eco-friendly treated, and repurposed for safe wear.

One pioneer for recycled-upcycled usage is Rachel Faller who started her company Tonlé. Her products are completely void of virgin materials saving tons of carbon from entering the atmosphere.

Green Matters describes her mission:

“By upcycling discarded pre-consumer fabric from clothing factories, she transforms fabric destined for the trash can into treasured clothing, bags, and jewelry. Based in Cambodia, Faller’s team regularly visits manufacturers to save hundreds of pounds of scrap materials from landfill. Once saved, her production team works to make sure every single scrap is put to use. Large scraps are cut down to make clothes while smaller pieces are made into a yarn like material to be woven. For the tiniest scraps, the company has created a formula for paper which allows them to turn small bits of scrap into hang tags and office paper. Through this process the company is able to close the loop in production while working in tandem with their zero waste mission.”

Faller is one example of many young and old entrepreneurs alike paving the way for a whole new fashion industry sector that may one day be the norm.

Ethical Tools

Yup, there are even apps to inform you of ethically made clothing and other goods such as non-toxic cleaning products, bath and spa products, as well as materials derived from workers under inhumane conditions.

Apps to try are:

  • GoodGuide
  • Free2Work
  • Shop Ethical
  • aVoid
  • The Higg Index

 

Get your Eco-Friendly fashion on and stop supporting consumer driven global health and human threats. In due time your wardrobe will consist of green choices that pay it forward to a more sustainable future.

Post Holiday Eco-Solutions

by @ Green Home Library

When the holidays are over, you have an opportunity to utilize some post holiday Eco-solutions rather than add to the continual waste around you. These are ways to harness various resources from your holiday leftovers for the betterment of your community and the planet.

Scrape the Scraps

If you have a composting system setup, after holiday meal scraps are perfect to add. If you don’t, now is the best time to start one. Plus, if you use compostable products for your holiday event, this is yet another opportunity to drastically reduce your garbage footprint.

No compost, no problem. Pack up those leftovers and donate to a homeless shelter or make a soup out of the scraps and help feed the needy.

Scoop the Paper

Wrapping paper that can be salvaged, folded and stored will save you time, money and unnecessary waste when your next present needs to be wrapped.

Scoop up as much used wrapping paper as you can and toss it in a pile until you can go through it. Cut in squares and place in a box under your bed or in a back closet for a treasure trove of recycled-upcycled designs that would otherwise end up in a landfill. You can do the same with empty boxes and if storage is a problem, gently pull them apart and store flat with wrapping paper. When needed, simply glue, tape or staple corners back together and you have a free gift box ready to go.

Tree to Earth

If you celebrate the holiday with a real Christmas tree then it is your responsibility to put your tree back into the earth. With over 10 million Christmas trees ending up in landfills each year, recycling yours is essential. Sure, if a tree is in a landfill, just like many compostable products, it will eventually biodegrade. However, it is the release of methane gas from these and other biological landfill waste that has become a huge problem for global warming.

Recycled trees can be used for many things including landscaping mulch or stream bank stabilization. Some businesses that sell trees offer recycling incentives. You can also contact the National Christmas Tree Association or check your local listings for a Christmas tree recycling program near you.

E-Waste

With holiday gifts comes holiday waste and electronics are at the top of the list. The amount of e-waste that is produced has become a serious problem due to the degenerating toxicity from these devices.

Small Footprint Family reports that,

“Each year, 130 million cell phones are thrown out, weighing approximately 65,000 tons. Recycling your old phone prevents hazardous elements like mercury, cadmium and lead from ending up in our landfills.”

Before dumping your old cell phone, tablet, computer or other used electronic device look into energy efficient programs near you or afar able to recycle and re-use rare earth metals and other components. Some organizations will even send you a prepaid mailing envelope to ship your e-waste to their company while paying you for it at the same time.

Digital Thank You’s

Once all the dust settles, you may want to send out some thank you notes. Yes, it’s nice to receive a handwritten note in a mailed envelope however, practically speaking, it wastes paper.

There are hundreds of digital ‘thank you’ sites offering a variety of graphics and delivery options to make your digital thank you just as special as a handwritten one. Some even include picture uploads so you can send images of the baby and kids, pets, grandparents and more.

 

Post holiday Eco-solutions are easy and smart. All it takes is a little wherewithal to gather up the loose ends so your after holiday carbon footprint is significantly reduced.

Fight Mineral Depletion in Your Favorite Greens

by @ Green Home Library

From the world of climate science comes the unsettling news that carbon dioxide, or CO2, actually reduces protein and nitrogen in staple grains like rice, wheat and barley.

CO2 Will Not Improve Plant Nutrition

Previously, it was thought that CO2 would improve plant growth and, as a result, food plant yields. Not so. In fact, atmospheric CO2 increases carbohydrates like starch and sugar, but depletes essential trace minerals, often more than nine percent.

That’s a lot of loss when it comes to the 13 essential minerals, 7 of which are vital to life: calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, and zinc (some scientists even include sodium, which is abundant in most diets).

The Seven Vital Nutrients

...are considered essential to everything from the immune system, the heart, and the Central Nervous System, to adequate hemoglobin in blood, sexual maturity, and metabolism. Diets low in minerals, especially zinc  and iron, result in poor growth in childhood, an immune system poorly equipped to fight off infections, and a greater number of maternal and child deaths.

This depletion in the bioavailability of minerals is “systemic and global” and may dramatically worsen the prevalence of “hidden hunger” and obesity. This type of malnutrition is typical of poor and undeveloped countries because many people cannot afford the fruits, vegetables, dairy and meats necessary to provide complete nutrition.

Lack of Plant Nutrients Raising Obesity Epidemic?

Unfortunately, it is also being seen in greater numbers in developed nations as the disparity between rich and poor grows. In the USA – according to New York Time columnist David Brooks – this gap is about 0.45, or worse than Iran. Brooks also notes that income inequality in New York City is similar to Swaziland. Miami is like Zimbabwe, and Los Angeles is equivalent to Sri Lanka.

Looking into the future, study author Loladze suggests that these food plant deficiencies might contribute to the rise in global obesity as people eat increasingly starchy grain crops, etc., consuming more and more to make up for the lack of vital nutrition.

What You Can Do

You can make sure that you (and your family and loved ones) do not suffer from vitamin/phytonutrient/mineral deficiencies. According to the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, broccoli sprouts are a superb source of minerals like calcium and magnesium, containing 10 to 100 times more cancer and inflammation fighters than full-sized broccoli plants, as well as vitamins and essential fatty acids produced during sprouting. Broccoli sprouts also help detox from many environmental pollutants like benzene.

They are easy to grow with a little planning and care. They are also easy on the budget, requiring little more than an old jar, some cheesecloth, and some seed. You can use sunflower seeds, broccoli seeds, and alfalfa seeds, to name but a few.

The "Indoor Salad Garden"

You can also grow some small vegetables indoors, in an “indoor salad garden”. Dr. Mercola, a leading health expert, recommends watercress, which reportedly has greater nutrient density than either broccoli or alfalfa sprouts.

You can even add various lettuces, green onions, arugula, spinach and mesclun to your salad garden. You can build racks to set in front of patio doors – but not directly, as this will freeze the plants. You can buy plant lights at any big-box home and garden store. Or you can spend up to $500 for a full-featured, tiered indoor growing system.

In short, as mega-farming and increasing CO2 levels rob plants of their nutrition, you can feed your family well on an hour or two a week planting, growing and harvesting sprouts and other salad vegetables.

Storing Your Home-Grown, Nutrient Rich Greens

Once your plants are harvested, be sure to store them in USA-made, BPA-free plastic food containers manufactured from recycled plastic. These eco-friendly food storage containers will definitely “green” your kitchen, even if it is red and blue.

Green Business Spawns More Green Jobs

by @ Green Home Library

They said it would happen and now it is coming to fruition. Starting with small business ventures and then catching the eye of Big Corp., green entrepreneurship and activist movements have begun spawning more green jobs in America and throughout the globe.

Although the current administration is supporting coal production, the need is no longer there. Since mechanization, coal industry jobs have diminished putting many out of work. The average number of employees at US coal mines dropped by 12% in 2015, according to the Energy Information Administration.

However, there is more demand elsewhere to put workers back on the map in the green sector. According to The Department of Energy's Energy and Employment Report it is predicted that green energy employment will have a 9% growth rate over the next 12 months — higher than any other energy sector.

Currently, Europe and Asia are taking the helm as the US trails, but hangs on to, green sector job growth until hopefully the White House comes to its senses, or succumbs to change.

They’re Blowing in the Wind

That’s right, wind energy jobs have increased from 3.4 million in 2011 to just over 4 million in 2017 according to a report published by the Environmental Defense Fund's Climate Corps program.

Business Insider writes,

“The report estimates that solar and wind jobs are growing at a rate 12 times as fast as the rest of the US economy and suggests that 46% of large firms have hired additional workers to address issues of sustainability over the past two years.”

If you have a small business, look into a wind energy choices from your local electric company. It is required in most states for the consumer to be able to choose their electricity source.

Smart Cities

With the steady growth of smart technology and smart homes, smart cities are on the parallel. Europe has recently reported of a “green jobs for a greener future” initiative citing several urban applications that will inevitably take over many conventional careers.

Some of these include:

  • Municipality - “We have identified, especially from the municipalities side, that there is a need to create new skilled jobs for the creation of specific cross-department teams to work on defining action plans for cities, supporting the design of solutions and an understanding of the needs," says Miguel Garcia, from the REMOURBAN project, which is pioneering new approaches to urban regeneration in the Spanish city of Valladolid, Nottingham in England, and Tepebasi/Eskisehir in Turkey.” (reported by Phys.Org)
  • Building Retrofit - Perfect for green small business startup jobs, retrofitting buildings with clean energy options and fixes has risen in demand due to money saving incentives.
  • Electric Car Infrastructure - As the alternative energy infrastructure rises in demand, more people are becoming electric car charging station installers and maintenance workers.
  • Solar Installation - As solar technology falls in price more commercial and residential installations have been sought after.

Cleanup

It's unfortunate that many will profit from man’s decades long environmental abuse, yet that is exactly what is happening. Certain sectors, small businesses, local organizations and even Big Corp. have finally wrapped their heads around the lucrative potential for green beautification, waterway cleanup, non-toxic cleaning, pure air initiatives and so much more.

One example that was originally considered a job killer is a mandate to cut pollution flowing into the Chesapeake Bay by 25 percent by 2025. A study of potential cleanup for 6 bay states that includesDelaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland, New York, Virginia and West Virginia stated,

“If history is any guide, environmental regulations will once again nourish job creation, not bury it,

 

As more small businesses go green it will inevitably lead the way for business to business and consumer to business green job increase. Add in activist movements and environmental cleanup for more job opportunities and, regardless of antiquated, bottom line only thinkers, more people will see and reap the job benefits of Eco-friendly opportunities.
