  • "We Australians consume textiles at twice the regular global rate, buying roughly 27kgs of new clothes every year. For the average Australian woman, that amounts to well over 2,000kgs of garments worn and discarded. Numbers are one thing – but what do you suppose a lifetime’s worth of clothing might look like?"⁣

In the run up to next week's Fashion Revolution Week, we've published a piece on The World's Tallest Closet – an art installation that uncovered the stark reality of what we buy and wear over the course of our lives, by building a closet that contains just that. As well as demonstrating the sheer volume of clothing we consume, the piece also sparked conversation on how we can dispose of items responsibly when doing a good old closet purge – head to the website now to find out more.⁣

  • "For the sixth year running, Baptist World Aid Australia – in partnership with Tearfund New Zealand – has released its ‘The Truth Behind the Barcode’ Ethical Fashion Report. The 2019 report, published on April 10, is broader in scope than ever before. This time around, researchers examined 130 companies representing 480 brands, including 50 newcomers. The research methodology was also expanded to include data about brands’ environmental impact, bringing the total number of criteria companies are assessed against to 44. Allocating each brand a grade from A+ to F based on the robustness of its policies, the Ethical Fashion Report is designed to empower consumers to make ethical shopping choices and also apply positive pressure to industry players."⁣
🙌🙌🙌⁣
The results are in - how did your favourite brands fare? With stats on everything from gender equality to textile waste, the @baptistworldaid report proves the old adage that knowledge is (spending) power - head to the website for our overview of an eye-opening survey of the current state of fashion.⁣

  • “Research in different contexts shows over and over again that when we’re in the presence of indoor plants, our mood is better, our stress levels are reduced, our cognitive performance improves and we get mentally refreshed.”⁣
🌿⁣
The humble houseplant is having a moment, and now research suggests that having greenery indoors may be even more beneficial than previously thought. Read the special feature in our latest Issue 41 where we hear from the green-fingered @homesteadbrooklyn, @connieandluna and @theplanthunter. It’s a must-read for any plant enthusiast! ⁣

Today is World Semicolon Day - the movement where a punctuation mark became hope for millions around the globe. The symbol - and day - helps to remind those struggling with mental illness and depression that they are not alone. Reach out, speak up, keep going; your story is not over yet.
