‘Waste No More’ Environmental Project to Debut in the U.S. at Park Avenue Armory

IT ALL ADDS UP: As part of the fashion industry’s ongoing crusade to make sustainability a more palatable subject, the art installation “Waste No More” will be staged at the Park Avenue Armory starting Thursday.
On view through Nov. 12, the environmentally oriented project will be set up in conjunction with The Salon Art + Design. Curated by Li Edelkoort, the show is meant to raise awareness about the mammoth amount of textile waste that consumers contribute to annually and to also show visitors the upsides of the circular economy.
An estimated $ 500 billion worth of clothing that is barely worn and rarely recycled is lost annually. More simply put, the average U.S. citizen throws away 70 pounds of clothing each year. Without any improvement, the fashion industry will use up a quarter of the world’s carbon budget by 2050, according to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.
With a name that seems to riff on the theatrical immersion experience, “Sleep No More,” Waste No More will be set up in the reception rooms of the Upper East Side Armory. It is presented by DesignWork, which is part of Renew, an initiative that turns previously owned Eileen Fisher clothing into felted material for fashion, home

Patagonia to Donate All Black Friday Proceeds to Environmental Groups

Patagonia will give 100 percent of global sales from its own stores and on patagonia.com on Black Friday to support grassroots environmental organizations, the outdoor specialist said Monday.
Patagonia already donates 1 percent of daily global sales to environmental grassroots groups, but the company said “during this difficult and divisive time, it is important that we come together and #LoveOurPlanet.”
Rose Marcario, president and chief executive officer of Patagonia, said, “We’re just days from Black Friday, one of the biggest consumer shopping days of the year in America. And as people think generously about family and friends, we also want to help our customers show love to the planet, which badly needs a gift or two.”
Marcario said the donations will go to organizations “working in local communities to protect our air, water and soil for future generations.”
“These are small groups, often underfunded and under the radar, who work on the front lines,” she said. “The support we can give is more important now than ever. We’ll also provide information in our stores and on our web site about how to get in touch with these groups and easily be active in your own communities — on Black Friday and every day.”
She said

Coral Reefs – Australian Sites for Learning Environmental Education

Coral Reefs – Australian Sites for Learning Environmental Education


Coral reefs are critical for biodiversity, food habitats and as tourist destinations, but they are in serious decline around the world. Humans are a major cause of this problem. Here we explore high school students’ educational reef experiences with respect to specific learning outcomes. Students were surveyed and interviewed as they were trained in coral reef ecology and monitoring in both the classroom and at various sites in the Great Barrier Reef. The Three A’s of Coastal and Marine Studies (Marine Education Society of Australasia) are awareness, attitudes and action. This presupposes a learning situation where a gain in knowledge (awareness) will lead to a change in attitude, and thereby improve positive personal actions toward marine environments. This research analyses the link between the knowledge-attitude-action variables in relation to the effect of direct reef experience. This work addressed the question of proximal relations between humans and coral reefs. It brought together literature and techniques from varying disciplines to generate statistical findings, while student accounts confirmed the learning value of structured activities underwater as part of reef trips.
