Fashion Revolution Everyday!
Love your clothes and the people who made them.
Via @amishaghadiali
#WhoMadeMyClothes @fash_rev @safia_minney#FashionRev
This Friday is Fashion Revolution Day. It marks two years since 1133 people died in the Rana Plaza catastrophe in Dhaka, Bangladesh. A further 2500 were injured. They were killed whilst working for familiar fashion brands in one of the many ‘accidents’ that plague the garment industry.
This tragedy gave rise to an incredible initiative, in the hope that such an atrocity never happens again. Fashion Revolution is a global collective of individuals, companies and NGOs that have a simple mission: WE BELIEVE IN FASHION – AN INDUSTRY WHICH VALUES PEOPLE, THE ENVIRONMENT, CREATIVITY AND PROFITS IN EQUAL MEASURE, AND IT’S EVERYONE’S RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE THAT THIS HAPPENS.
How to take part in Fashion Revolution wherever in the world you are:
Taking part in the Fashion Revolution is easy. All you have to do is follow these simple instructions on Friday.
Clothes are made by actual human beings, with faces, names and amazing stories of survival and growth. When a brand knows who made their clothes, it looks like this! Click for People Tree's story.

AIMLESS-NESS

via +ThichNhatHanh​

Extract:
"The power of aimlessness!

Thay talks of the importance of developing the art of aimlessness, rather than the non-stop creation of more projects.

"People believe that happiness is in the future and the point of aimlessness is to stop running and find happiness in the here and the now," he says.

"True happiness cannot be without peace. If you continue to run, how can you have peace and you run in your dreams also. That is our civilisation.

"We have to reverse this trend. We have to go back to ourselves, to our beloved ones, to nature, because electronic devices help us to run away from ourselves. We lose ourselves in the internet, business, projects and we have no time to be with ourselves. We do not have the time to take care of our beloved ones and do not allow Mother Earth to heal us. We are running away from self, family and nature."

Global tech companies are connecting to the power of mindfulness and meditation in order to drive sustainability and happiness

There were at least 40-50 plaster mice in #Versailles' city hall garden... No indication of the #artist? Do you know who is behind this?

"For many older people in Japan work isn’t just a way to keep busy but also a source of happiness and wellbeing. From a 71-year-old barber to a 100-year-old café owner, #Monocle visits Japan’s elderly who are showing little sign of letting up."

SETH GODIN TEACHES SOMETHING ABOUT LUXURY
Customer service is central, so we truly do our very very best!
If you are an existing customer, please always let us know how we can do better <3

If your Chanel bag wears out, don't expect the same response you might find if you have trouble with something from LL Bean or Lands End. Luxury brands have long assumed that if you can afford to buy it, you...

SECURITY GUARD OUTDANCES MASCOTT
Dance your way through everyday!
Whenever you get stuck (at work, in a discussion, in traffic...), resume your deep breathing and get moving :)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SY1Xd8yy54 "Most epic absolute WIN - Security Guard VS Mascot Dance Battle LIKE A BOSS . Astros Mascot Orbit Loses Dance-off to Security Guard Between Innings during Friday night's game between the Houston Astros and Detroit Tigers, Astros mascot Orbit got down with one of the security guards. Orbit didn't have anything on the guard, however, as the man showed off some impressive dance moves. Even security guards can have fun from time to time."

2015 is our last chance? ‪#‎EarthDay‬
"Earth Day: scientists say 75% of known fossil fuel reserves must stay in ground
Leading scientists and economists release statement to mark Earth Day in which they urge leaders to keep to commitments to avoid dangerous global warming.
Three-quarters of known fossil fuel reserves must be kept in the ground if humanity is to avoid the worst effects of climate change, a group of leading scientists and economists have said in a statement timed to coincide with Earth Day.
Can we afford to tackle climage change? Guardian journalists and prominent authors, economists and campaigners explore the finance of keeping fossil fuels in the ground"

WORK vs. PLAY
https://www.pinterest.com/pin/266979084136710790/ "At any rate, the way to tell if you are working or playing with inspiration is that there is essentially no effort involved. It’s something you feel you must do—you are being called to do it. It’s fun, rewarding, relaxing, and enjoyable. It doesn’t feel like “work” even though from a technical sense, it could be.
You can think of others who you may think of as sources of inspiration—those who work for fun and love their life. Money may come easily to these folks, but it is never their primary motivation." Wayne Dyer, read more here http://www.drwaynedyer.com/press/finding-inspiration/)

Yes to homemade pizza!
http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/08/dining/homemade-pizza-easier-and-faster.html
"This may be the pizza method that finally persuades you. It’s a technique that dispatches all the obvious obstacles; a recipe I’ve spent the last 20 years tweaking and tinkering with in a quest for the kind of artisanal crust you want in as little time and with as little effort as possible... I discovered two allies in the kitchen that can make homemade pizza easier, faster and, yes, a regular weeknight event. These allies are your food processor and your freezer."
From book TRULY, MADLY PIZZA by Suzanne Lenzer http://www.suzannelenzer.com/mycookbook "When I make pizza at home I use Suzanne’s crust--and, now that I think about it, the rest of her methods--and I’m repeatedly thankful."
— Mark Bittman, New York Times columnist and author of How to Cook Everything

Two allies in the kitchen — your food processor and freezer — can make pizza a regular weeknight event.

Gaultier Confessions
http://www.businessoffashion.com/articles/news-analysis/gaultier-confesses-why-he-quit-ready-to-wear "Too many clothes kills clothes... Fashion has changed. A proliferation of clothing. Eight collections per season — that's 16 a year," he said.
"The system doesn't work... There aren't enough people to buy them. We're making clothes that aren't destined to be worn," he added
Gaultier isn't the only one disillusioned with a luxury industry that's bursting at the seams. Today, for example, there are some 100 collections presented four times a year in Paris alone."
The French couturier — who found fame putting Madonna in a conical bra and helped shape global trends for four decades — shocked the fashion world by ending his ready-to-wear and menswear lines earlier this year.
