Why We Care About #Sustainable #Fashion | Indie Source

Green is in! No, we don’t mean the color (though neon has made a comeback). Have you ever gone browsing in your parent’s closet and found a cool vintage piece? Well, what if we told you that wearing said vintage piece not only gets you major street credit with a unique new look but makes you Earth’s new friend!

To eliminate waste, we need to rediscover thrift | Andrew Dent

There’s no such thing as throwing something away, says Andrew Dent — when you toss a used food container, broken toy or old pair of socks into the trash, those things inevitably end up in ever-growing landfills. But we can get smarter about the way we make, and remake, our products. Dent shares exciting examples of thrift — the idea of using and reusing what you need so you don’t have to purchase anything new — as well as advances in material science, like electronics made of nanocellulose and enzymes that can help make plastic infinitely recyclable. Check out more TED Talks: The TED Talks channel features the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world’s leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less).
