Oh hello, dream house! Look at this incredible home in Maui, build on sustainable principles. I'd move in in a second. (make sure to check the slideshow, gaah)
Patagonia is one of my most admired companies. And interviews with any of their employees are always such a great inspiration and also a relieve - in times when every other manager interview is all about driving performance, no matter what. This one with Vincent Stanley, Director of Philosophy at Patagonia (I mean this title... yes!), is no difference. For more insights into how to build a successful company based on responsibility - read on. (via Offscreen Dispatch)
I found this piece of information very interesting: investing your money in sustainable funds is the No.1 mean to foster climate change. I'm going to dig a bit more into this and see how I can adjust my investment strategy accordingly. Also, the rest of the list is similar amazing: not trashing your food and educating girls helps so much more than installing solar panels.
Oooh this is great news!! Lego is producing a set of pieces made of sustainable plastic based on sugarcane. All production should be aligned until 2030 (great move; yet why take another 12 long years?). It's an admired company with impressive history and great mission, which only has one flaw: PLASTIC MASS-PRODUCTION. I'm glad they're starting this switch now and continue being a cool company.
Traveling often becomes a challenge when it comes to keeping a sustainable standard. But as always, if you boil it down to a few guidelines, it becomes so much easier to keep in mind and follow through. The Good Trade overs a good start.
Oh these images made me swoon and crave summer even more. How pretty is this yellow swimsuit by MYMARINI, a German sustainable swim wear producer?
There is a big movement in the cosmetics industry in eliminating nasty stuff like microplastics and becoming more organic, no doubt. Not so much is happening on the packaging side though. Enter the fantastic female founders of Sulapac, who invented a biodegradable packaging based on wood that is not only eco-friendly but also nice to look at. Hope we'll see more of it on our shelves soon! (via)
