  • PURE LOVE ❤ We recently visited Mullumbimby for our 'Village Green' feature on the area, and naturally had to stop at Pure Melt. This delicious ‘chocolate lounge’ is home to Certified Organic, ethically sourced, raw, vegan, gluten-free chocolate and brownies made lovingly by local lady Sarah Wheeler (a woman after our own hearts). Check out issue 41 for more on this little town with a strong spirit of creativity, community and connection.⠀

From @theclimatecouncil: "2018 was the third hottest year on record for Australia, according to the latest Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) data. Climate Councillor and climate scientist, Professor Will Steffen said “These latest data from BOM come as no surprise. Climate change is intensifying around the world and Australia is no exception, as our climate system continues to set new extreme heat records. Nine of Australia’s hottest 10 years have occurred since 2005, so the extremes in 2018 are part of a long-term trend, being driven by intensifying climate change,” said Professor Steffen.⠀
Climate Council acting CEO Dr Martin Rice said “this annual summary from BOM once again cements the fact that Australia needs to take a good hard look at its greenhouse gas pollution levels, which have been consistently rising over the past four years.”⠀
“The Federal Government must adopt a credible policy, which deeply and rapidly reduces our greenhouse gas pollution if we are to effectively tackle climate change,” said Dr Rice.⠀
“At this point, if all countries were to adopt Australia’s current policies we would be on track for a world that’s at least 3°C warmer than the era prior to mass industrialisation. This would have disastrous consequences for billions of people,” he said.⠀
“Our window to act is closing and the Federal Government’s current efforts are an abject failure,” said Dr Rice."⠀

  • "When we started to investigate wardrobe behaviours we realised fast fashion is quite a complex picture – products that are designed to last a long time might end up only being worn once or twice and then thrown away. And polyester, which is so often used for fast fashion, is actually the slowest material of all – it takes millions of years to create, it’s durable during use and it takes 200 years to biodegrade.⠀
So, what did we end up with? The slow product, our Eternal Trench Coat, is made of 100% recycled polyester and is 100% recyclable. It has a circular life and is part of a closed-loop technical cycle where it will be recycled into the same material. The short-life product, our Throw Away Dress, is made of 100% bio-based material and is 100% biodegradable. It’s made from a non-woven Tencel material that can’t be washed, and you put it in your compost after a few wears so it can go back to the soil and become nutrients again.⠀
What we learnt during this project was that to be able to create fully circular garments that are part of a circular economy you have to start with the end in mind. Will the product be part of the biological or technical cycle? Let the criteria for that steer your different design decisions and the product development."⠀
