Sweaters and the new green economy
December 16, 2013
Hey peeps, this is prime example of a week that blends and stirs together different living, breathing elements of sustainability in action. You’ll find my guide to greener sweaters, made lovingly, without sweatshop labour and with greener, more sustainable fibres. You’ll also find my Q&A with a prominent thinker on the new green economy – Tim Jackson, and funnily enough, the two have a lot in common. Why? Well, those businesses making those feel-good green sweaters are actually live examples of just what a green economy should embrace! Healthy, happy jobs that produce healthy, happy products. Plus you’ll also find my greenwash of the week is a moisturizer many of you have probably have in your homes (they’re that good at greenwashing). Check it all out in this issue of NOW by reading on here.
