climate friendly clothes
Tuesday, November 07, 2006
what do you look for when you go shopping?
how good it looks on you?
it usually is a combination of a number of factors but it's highly unlikely to be looking for CLIMATE FRIENDLY CLOTHES.
there is this climate neutral company in australia called slingfings? they calculate their climate impact from the freight of raw materials down to their operations and delivery to ensure that they emit the least amount of carbon dioxide possible.
this dress from them costs AUS$230. quite expensive for most, but that's the price that you have to pay if you want environmentally friendly duds.
that's good news for australians. but what about people from other countries? i want to know if there are other climate friendly clothing brands from your area. i don't know any from the philippines.
be on the lookout. readers, lead us to the right direction!

Good idea. May it prosper. We in SA can take a leaf from the Oz book.

I´ve always hoped for a climat friendly cloth company! It´s in Australia, but it´s a first step.

Hello! Actually I don't know if here in Italy there are climat friendly cloth companies,but I'll get informed and soon I'll let you know...I think this is a very beautiful and useful idea that this Australian company has realised!

You would be amazed at what some people sell on ebay. High fashion new cloths avoid the cost of creating new material.
Just make sure you know your measurements.
