Journey in (Sustainable) Fashion with Rothy’s Weekender Bag

Though COVID-19 is putting a damper on travel around the world, people are still finding ways to have little adventures of their own, even if it means a weekend trip to a nearby town to shop, relax, wine, eat and new ones to recharge your batteries. And while you may not have needed your bulky rolling luggage or even that overhead bin-friendly suitcase for the last two years, chances are you needed a smaller, more easily transportable suitcase weekend bag to see you through some much needed getaways in the pandemic time.

I’ve had my fair share weekend bags. There were the colorful cloth bags that looked cute but quickly lost their durability and originality after a few trips. Then there were them Leather holdalls which certainly contained everything I needed but weren’t fancy enough to use for more than a couple of years before they were donated.

And sure, there are tons of beautiful, fashionable weekender bags out there, but personally I’ve fallen in love Rothy’s weekender bag, which has already inspired me to make travel a priority. I chose the eco-friendly bag not only because of its beautiful design, but also because of the way it’s made.

Buy at Rothy’s, $550

Known for its commitment to sustainability and its trademark, easily identifiable homes, Rothy’s has made a name for itself with forward-thinking fashion. And while it would be easy to adore the brand just for their comfy flats, their lesser-known holdalls are also worthy of praise. The brand carries two that I love: The weekender and The sleeper.

As you might have guessed from the name, the weekender, made from recycled plastic, is spacious enough for multi-day trips. The bag holds its structure incredibly well and isn’t flimsy at all.

If you can mix and match clothes and don’t pack too much extra fluff – it’s hard not to overdo it with reading – you can pack comfortably for up to four to five days of travel with The Weekender. However, the overnighter is a real overnighter.

The story goes on

Buy at Rothy’s, $475

The bags themselves look like expensive handbags that have been blown up. I went with the versatile camel and black style, but the bag is also available in a sandstone Draft. And if you ever need to clean your bag, no worries: it comes with a dedicated wash bag to protect it for those gentle washes.

I sometimes use the adjustable shoulder strap depending on how much I’m carrying, but it’s removable if you prefer to hold the padded, easy-to-carry handles. The weekender bag has a main compartment for clothes, but also has two incredibly useful side compartments: one handy for shoes, maybe one matching pair of Rothys, and another to fit other necessities like phone charger, notebook, electric toothbrush, wallet, sunglasses – I’ll leave the packing to you.

And while it’s inevitable that international travel will pick up again as COVID-19 sees its decline, you’ll still find ways to integrate The weekender in your little adventures It’s okay to leave that bulky suitcase in the closet a little longer.

Sustainable Trend Present Provides Recent Look On Type & Atmosphere

PALOS VERDES, CA – South Bay locals are invited to a sustainable benefit and catwalk show hosted by New2U and South Bay Cares on Sunday. It is an event to raise awareness of the damage caused by fast fashion to our environment and how to defend against these harmful effects.

The event takes place from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. at El Camp. Attendees can expect a catwalk, raffle prizes, speakers, DJs, and the sale of carefully used, curated clothing to promote new ways people look at their closets and the impact on our planet. Much of the proceeds will go to Sew Swag and the League of Women’s Voters.

The event is inspired by Daisy Hutton, co-founder of The Fixx Collective and Dillon Eisman, founder of Sew-Swag.

The clothing industry is the second largest industrial polluter after the oil industry. It is responsible for 10 percent of global CO2 emissions.

The fashion industry is currently responsible for more annual carbon emissions than all international flights and shipping combined, and around 85 percent of clothing and textile waste ends up in landfills or incinerators.

The price of the current fast fashion business model to our environment and developing countries is becoming more recognized, and a growing number of people want to make environmentally conscious and humane purchasing decisions.

“There are people who are trying to completely reform the system, from the materials we use to the way we make clothes and the way we shop,” the organizers told Patch. “We’ll be highlighting some of the change makers during our event and providing useful resources to help guide our fashion mindset in a more sustainable direction.”

Daisy Hutton, co-founder of The Fixx collective talks about practical steps to develop a stylish, sustainable wardrobe. She combines years of experience in the fashion industry and passion for our environment in her approach to fashion art.

Dillon Eisman, founder of Sew swag will talk about his journey to found Sew Swag. Sew Swag Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit that transforms damaged and donated clothing into fashionable outfits for the greater Los Angeles homeless population. Her goal is to give those in need the clothing and dignity necessary to begin the transition from the street. Sew Swag has a wide range of impacts across Southern California through partnerships with other nonprofits and animal shelters.

The sustainable fashion show takes place at El Camp, 2150 Park Place, Ste 100, El Segundo. Tickets are $ 10 and are free for students. BrownBag link + QR code. Visit the website for more event information: https://m.bpt.me/event/5265606

Squid Sport, Type affect and Sustainable consumption

Have you heard of the latest South Korean drama blockbuster called Squid Game? It was released on Netflix on September 17, 2021 and has quickly gained a worldwide audience. Since its debut, it has been viewed by more than 100 million people and is trending # 1 on the top 10 lists in 94 countries around the world.

The South Korean drama not only topped the list but also created a trend that has influenced fashion style around the world and has dominated online platforms like Google, Facebook, Instagram and several online shopping websites: Amazon, eBay, Shoppee and soon. Find more than 223,000,000 results in just 0.53 seconds on Google.com; on Amazon.com, the term “Squid Game Costume” has also become a top finish, even if you just typed two characters “sq” the full term “Squid Game Costume” appears and you can find over a thousand of Results on this type of clothing. 6,150 results for Squid Game Costume appear when you search on eBay. On Instagram and Facebook, the hashtag #SquidGameCostume has become the most popular key hashtag lately and could be the influential style this winter.

Unlike trendy superhero films like Captain American, Avengers, with characters wearing special and uncomfortable costumes for everyday use, Squid Game is full of players wearing mundane teal tracksuits. And this style of wearing tracksuits has been promoted by luxury fashion brands like Louis Vuitton and Channel over the past few years as it’s comfortable, full of fashion and suitable for almost everyone from kids to teens to adults. This is why the apparently simple tracksuits in “Squid Game” have become more trendy.

The green tracksuit is likely to become popular for its convenience and ease of manufacture, but it’s not the only known outfit, one that is probably even more sought after is the set of pink jumpsuits and black masks that watch the spectacle. Halloween is just around the corner, this type of costume has the potential to become yet another “red jumpsuit and Salvador Dalí masks” – a phenomenon that stems from the previous hit Money Heist. The Squid Game costume could clearly be a perfect choice for those looking for the new and trendy Halloween costume, and fashion influencers may have to queue for the Squid Game this Halloween and this winter.

With marketing strategies in all aspects that a normal person can only achieve with the smartphone, it is not difficult for “Squid Game” to be accessible through advertising, and it could be easier for fashion companies and in marketing to find a way to companies that are not active in the fashion industry can also be won over. Netflix even sells Squid Game t-shirts and hoodies on its website, and it seems that marketing the products of trending movies will become the marketing trend in the future.

However, from the point of view of environmentalists or proponents of sustainable consumption, the influences of fads can counter what they haunted. Sustainable consumption is the use of services and related products that meet basic needs and bring about a better quality of life while minimizing the consumption of natural resources and toxic materials as well as emissions of waste and pollutants over the life cycle of the service or product to meet the needs of future generations. Sustainable consumption is closely related to sustainable production and a sustainable way of life. If we think about the relationship of a hot trend like Squid Game and its influence, we can see the 4M Plus (4M +) model. including mass media marketing – mass outfit obsession – mass production – mass consumption, and the plus could be the mass damage to the environment. It doesn’t seem like mass production if it happens just once in a blue moon and just for a movie / show, but in reality it’s an unstoppable game that every director wants to win. The influence of fashion could be a tool to reach the top trend show of the year and later also be a boost for the fashion industry and consumption.

So is the top trend show good at marketing and promoting fashion consumption by creating style influence, definitely yes, but is it promoting sustainable consumption? I am not sure.

Wooster races goal to boost cash for sustainable agriculture in Ethiopia

Most people may never have heard of Waliso, also written Woliso or Wolisso, but three Wooster races aim to raise money for the South Ethiopian community in the name of sustainable agriculture.

The Bethel Agriculture Association will hold a 5k and a 10k on Saturday at 9 a.m. at the Secrest Arboretum and the Ohio State University Agricultural Technical Institute.

Warren Dick, the president and director of Bethel Agriculture, organized Running for Agricultural Resilience in Africa in hopes of raising $ 25,000 for the construction of two buildings in the Ethiopian city.

Retirement:Medicine was his calling: Dr. Frank Cebul from Wooster is retiring after 40 years

“We want to build four buildings on the property, but these two will be built with donations from this race,” said Dick.

The buildings will include a guest room, computer and reading room, kitchen and dining area. The rooms will be designed for international workers and local community members who need the space.

Land for an office building and analytical laboratory has already been acquired and is being funded elsewhere, Dick said.

Sustainable agriculture

While Dick said Waliso was spared the worst civil war between the Ethiopian government and the armed forces in Tigray, the region has seen a lot in terms of drought, floods and locusts.

This has sometimes culminated in famine and regions with no food or clean water, he said.

Dick and Bethel Agriculture aim to educate Waliso residents about how to best manage the land and produce food for their community in a sustainable and effective way.

“Ethiopia is currently the worst case scenario for food security in the world,” said Dick, who has visited the East African country several times. “It is good to distribute food, but our project is to help the people of Ethiopia develop their own food production system.”

The site on which the buildings will be erected will serve as an agricultural extension, similar to the OSU extension in Wayne County.

Aim to create a self-sustaining industry

Once built, Dick aims to create a self-sustaining industry that doesn’t rely too heavily on food donations, if at all.

Climate change is another factor affecting food production in the region, he said.

“The rapid population growth in Ethiopia, the scarcity of land and a changing climate have put increasing pressure on the land, especially in the highlands, which comprise 95% of the country’s cultivated land”, The Bethel Agriculture Association website reads.

Not only do Dick and his team hope to create a better farming system and educate people, but they also want to mitigate the impact of agriculture on climate change on a global and local level.

Sustainable investing now not means decrease returns

The CEO of the banking giant Swiss credit told CNBC that the coronavirus pandemic “has greatly accelerated the trend towards ESG and sustainability,” and has sought to highlight the investment opportunity across the board.

“The demand we see – from both our residential and institutional customers – for ESG-compliant products is growing all the time,” said Thomas Gottstein, who spoke with CNBC’s Geoff Cutmore. “It’s also clearly seen as an opportunity to improve returns.”

“Sustainable investments and sustainable returns are not a contradiction in terms, on the contrary,” adds Gottstein. “In many cases, sustainable investments even bring a higher return than non-sustainable investments.”

CNBC Pro Stock Pick and Investment Trends:

There seems to be a shift going on. In February, the Morgan Stanley Institute for Sustainable Investing found that in 2020, “US sustainable equity funds outperformed their traditional benchmark funds by an average total return of 4.3 percentage points”.

“Sustainable US bond funds outperformed their traditional benchmark funds by an average total return of 0.9 percentage points,” it said.

In a statement released at the time, Audrey Choi, Chief Sustainability Officer of Morgan Stanley and CEO of the Institute for Sustainable Investing, said: “The strong risk and return performance of sustainable funds during an exceptionally turbulent year further undermines the persistent misconception that sustainable investing requires a sacrifice. “

The growing influence of ESG

The term ESG stands for environment, social and governance. It has become a hot topic in recent years as a multitude of companies seek to improve their credentials by developing business practices that align with ESG-related criteria.

In his interview with CNBC, Gottstein described the sustainability and ESG movement as “global”.

As an institution, Credit Suisse has placed ESG integration in its “spectrum for sustainable investing”, which also includes thematic investing, impact investing and exclusion.

The bank describes the latter as a strategy in which investors “can decide to actively exclude sectors or companies in controversial business areas – for example weapons or tobacco”.

Regulation and CO2 taxes

Gottstein was also asked if he believed heavy emitters and extractive industries would have to pay higher capital costs and if he saw Credit Suisse having a role in enforcing such a penalty.

“I think it’s already happening to some extent,” he replied. “I think companies that are lagging behind the curve in terms of sustainability are already being forced to pay higher costs of capital, be it for borrowing costs or cost of equity,” he added.

“So I’m not a big fan of regulation and enforce higher capital costs from the outside or unnaturally or through regulatory measures because it happens.”

The EU executive, the European Commission, is expected to present plans for a mechanism to adjust CO2 limits in the near future. According to the Commission, this would set “a carbon price for certain goods imported from outside the EU”.

Gottstein was cautious about the introduction of a carbon tax in Europe on imports and his view of using the tax system to encourage behavior change.

“I’m not convinced of the CO2 tax,” he said. “I think market forces are so strong now that I’m not sure if this is necessary because investor demand is now so focused on sustainable products that, in my opinion, no CO2 tax is necessary.”

Colorado Comeback Money winner Pete Vegas has sustainable agriculture plan for cash

By Alex Edwards

Boulder has new comeback cash winners in Colorado’s seed lottery. Pete Vegas received $ 1 million in prize money and Levi received a $ 50,000 scholarship as part of ongoing efforts to mitigate the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The winners were announced at a press conference held by Governor Jared Polis on Friday, streamed on Facebook. See below bit.ly/3vzGJs9. Since Levi is only 13 years old, his last name has not been disclosed.

Vegas owns Sage V (pronounced Sage Five) Foods, which specializes in making rice-based ingredients for processed foods. As a private individual, Vegas didn’t want to talk about its profits.

However, he was more than happy to talk about his plans for the money. Vegas is passionate about the environment and as a professional farmer he recognizes the negative impact modern agriculture can have on it.

“I plowed the land I had at least five times a year,” he said. “People are still following these practices and have reduced the organic matter in the soil over time.”

Organic matter contains a lot, which brings with it two problems: Plants need carbon to grow, among other things, but plowing the land disrupts and displaces the carbon that is then released into the atmosphere.

According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, agriculture can cause up to 31% of greenhouse gas emissions. Vegas plans to use some of the money won to subsidize regenerative farming for some of the farms growing for its business to help reduce that impact.

“It (regenerative agriculture) is trying to restore the soil, and it is trying to pull carbon out of the air and put it back into the ground,” he said.

And it’s not just a fad: Regenerative agriculture works.

However, widespread adoption could be an uphill battle due to government funding and policies favoring other crops like corn and soybeans. In addition, the cost of adopting regenerative agriculture will be high, simply because there is no one-size-fits-all approach.

“If you go south, where you have a lot more moisture, you have a much larger weed population, a population of insects,” he said. “Whoever does it first will lose money because we don’t know how to do it. It’s going to be an experiment. “

This is where the Colorado Comeback Cash Money comes in. Vegas said he plans to work with farmers who grow for him to test regenerative agriculture using rice crops. He plans to pay them whatever they lose during the experimental cultivation.

“It doesn’t get any government aid,” he said. “If you are interested in regenerative ag, you are on your own.”

While members of Vegas’ own older generation are more skeptical of the practice, he said that young members are open to the opportunities the practice offers.

On vaccines and public health, Vegas expressed its frustration at how superficial concerns about the vaccine appear to be. In his opinion, vaccines are viewed as something to prevent an individual from getting sick rather than for the good of the nation and the world.

“It’s not just about protecting yourself,” he said. “It’s a really selfish attitude. This is a situation where people have to think about the whole thing; You have to think of other people and what we can all do together to eradicate such a disease. “

Smallpox was eradicated by vaccination and declared eradicated in 1980 by the World Health Organization.

“Everyone’s talking about, ‘Oh, it’s safe,’ or, in this case, ‘If you get your vaccine, you might make some money,'” he said. “We’re all trying to come together and turn this disease off, and that can’t happen if some people hold back.”

A ‘tsunami of cash’ goes to sustainable belongings

Sustainable investing can generate good returns as a “tsunami of money” flows into such assets, said Piyush Gupta, group chief executive of Singapore’s largest bank DBS.

“The truth is that a tsunami of money is flowing into ESG investing,” he said, referring to investments that consider environmental, social and governance factors.

Even if the asset’s fundamental value doesn’t increase, the supply-demand equation will persist, Gupta Martin Soong said during the virtual CNBC Evolve Global Summit On Wednesday.

When asked if sustainable investing is just a trend or if it’s a long-term strategy, the CEO said that either way, the investment is likely to generate good returns.

Typically, if you were to create a basket of ESG stocks, you would definitely be picking up high performing companies, and that’s not a bad investment profile.

Piyush Gupta

CEO of the DBS Group

“You can’t do badly to be in … a basket of ESG assets just because there is an extra trillion dollars in that asset class,” said Gupta, a member of CNBC’s ESG council. “If nothing else, prices will go up.”

Another factor that bodes well for sustainable investing is that ESG-focused companies “tend to be high performing companies,” he said.

“So if you were to create a basket of ESG stocks, you would typically definitely be adding high performing companies, and that’s not a bad investment profile,” he added.

‘Clear’ interest in sustainability

Gupta said investors – both private and institutional – are starting to intentionally choose investments that are socially responsible or promote environmental sustainability.

“Many customers want a choice of what investments to make,” he said.

“It’s even more visible in the institutional investor space,” he said, noting that sovereign wealth funds often have guidelines for making sectoral decisions and where to put their money.

However, it remains to be seen whether investors will continue to opt for sustainability even if investments have not performed well.

“In many cases people are happy to choose ESG when they can get at least the same market return as a non-ESG investment – but it’s not clear how many of them are willing to compromise and seek a lower return on the product “said Gupta.” That still has to be tested.

Corporate governance

China Asset Management CEO Li Yimei said before the same CNBC Evolve panel that there has been a great improvement in corporate governance and shareholder valuation in China over the past decade.

Li, who is also a member of the CNBC ESG Council, said state-owned companies are now regularly engaging their investors and top executives are talking to retail investors through social media and conferences.

“We think we have seen progress,” she said.

DBS’s Gupta agreed, but said there were gaps in Asia.

Regarding the perception that public companies in Asia have historically not focused on the benefit of their shareholders, he asks whether corporate governance is all about investors or whether it extends to other stakeholders as well.

“Honestly, the rest of the world is going there now – a realization that … you need to make sure you have a responsibility to other communities, societies (and) taxpayers,” he said.

The idea that corporate governance is all about shareholders is changing, Gupta said.

“The rubric is changing, and within the … changing rubric, a lot of Asian companies are actually not doing that badly,” he said.

What’s gradual vogue? Motion towards extra sustainable model is increasing

We continue to celebrate Earth monthIt is important to highlight the “slow fashion” movement, which aims to make fashion more sustainable for people and the planet.

In 2018, 11.3 million tonnes of municipal waste textiles (MSW) were disposed of in landfills alone, which corresponds to 7.7% of all landfilled MSW U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

PHOTO: Clothes and accessories hang from a rack in an undated photo.

Part of this ongoing waste can be “fast fashion“Brands that essentially get trending designs off the runway to stores faster. These items are typically made of poor quality but sell quickly due to lower costs.

Many of these products don’t last long and end up in the trash.

“The fast-fashion phenomenon – since the dawn of the millennium – has aimed to feed this fast-paced world of ultra-consumerism that all people want is a huge selection of clothes at affordable prices, with new items popping up every other week” Lucia Scarampi, co-founder of the Slow Fashion brand Marta Scarampisaid “GMA”.

What is slow fashion?

Slow fashion is a business model in which clothes are made more carefully and with more environmentally friendly materials. While the production process is longer, it also offers the ability to produce well-designed parts that are built to last, are easy to reuse and, in turn, generate less waste.

“The slow fashion movement is calling on all of us, consumers, to change the way we think by giving up senseless shopping and thinking before we act,” said Scarampi. “It also challenges us to move into shopping habits that are good for the planet.”

Scarampi’s company has kept slow fashion at its core by making items from scratch after they’re ordered, she said. The garments are carefully made and designed to be sustainable for up to two weeks.

The brand has one too Re-waste project The aim is to continuously source environmentally conscious materials, which will ultimately lead to the company being 100% waste-free.

Legendary designer fashion companies like Eileen Fisher have also found ways to incorporate sustainable slow fashion into their unique designs.

“I think slow fashion starts from a place of intuition and intention – not producing more and more just to get something out of the world,” founder and CEO Eileen Fisher told GMA.

“Take the time to review each step of the design and manufacturing process and understand how each piece is designed with a specific purpose and relationship to the rest of the line,” said Fisher. “This idea of ​​radical simplicity resonates with me right now – reduce, find what you love, and focus on what matters most.”

Fisher’s clothing brand made its earliest sustainable decision to start with high quality fibers and materials over 25 years ago after hiring its director of social awareness, she said. It was then that the label began to realize that the world of sustainability was huge, touching every part of business, including human rights, water use, carbon, recycling, and more.

In 2009 the Certified B Corporation also founded their “Renew“A program that enables shoppers to bring clothing back to stores where it can be resold, donated, or converted into a new design.

While popular fast fashion brands haven’t announced plans for more sustainability within their business model, there are buoyant direct-to-consumer labels like Everlane that strive to continually look for ways to take a slower, more sustainable approach.

“As the company has grown, our environmental impact has increased, and it is clear that our planet is in an environmental crisis,” said Sonia Martin, Everlane’s vice president of design, to GMA. “We chose to take responsibility to push for an honest, lower impact supply chain. We believe it is our responsibility to educate consumers and develop products with lower environmental impact so that they can choose and make better choices can meet.”

Most recently, the company debuted for the first time Swimwear collection Composed of seven models made from high quality Italian fabric made from 13,768 pounds of recycled plastic.

“Clothes that are better for the planet don’t have to look boring or lack a style perspective, fashion can be a driving force,” said Martin. “Our team is obsessed with designing high quality clothing that will last in your wardrobe for years and still be on trend.”

“It’s about getting the little details perfect – from the color palette to the finish,” she said.

Other seasoned and emerging fashion brands that have followed the slow fashion plan without sacrificing style or quality include Stella McCartney, Reformation, Amour Vert, ThredUP, Levis and more.

11 Sustainable Males’s Clothes Manufacturers for Spring & Summer time Fashion

The menswear industry has been making clothing for more than 150 years, and the latest trend isn’t a must for style or color. It’s sustainable and environmentally friendly clothing.

The clothing production must be more humane and environmentally conscious. We found 11 men’s clothing brands were taking the right steps to reduce their use of water and chemicals, improve sourcing of organic and recycled textiles, and offset the impact of shipping. They also treat their manufacturing workers with greater respect and ensure safer working conditions.

Fashion is one of the most inefficient industries in the world and promotes a throwaway culture that is inconsistent with a sustainable human society. In 2013, 1,100 workers were killed and around 2,500 injured in the EU Dhaka clothing factory collapse. The tragedy caused consumers around the world to question clothing-making practices. In 2015, Netflix released a documentary – The real cost – Highlight the disastrous effects of the fast fashion industry on the environment.

While no fashion brand is completely eco-friendly – at this point in time, all clothing items have some negative impact on the environment – some brands have made efforts to make a difference.
