NO THANKS! The A-Z of what we could (and should) live without.

See page 74

 

A.nimal testing

Torturing animals for our luxury is cruel, sick and mostly unnecessary. An estimated 94 % of animal testing is not for medical purposes, but for cosmetics and household products. The eu banned animal tests for cosmetic ingredients in 2009. But the cosmetic industry claimed that alternative ways of testing were not ready, and the ban has been put on hold indefinitely.

 

B.ombs

War and weapons are big business. The five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council (usa, uk, France, China and Russia) are the world’s biggest arms producers. Paradoxically, their main aim is to “maintain peace and security” in the world.

 

C.otton

Fields make up only 2.4 % Of cultivated land. Yet they need one fifth of all chemicals used in agriculture worldwide. The cotton industry has also marginalised the cultivation of other textile plants, such as linen or hemp, whose environmental impact is comparatively small.

Nous allons montrer que l’homme est un prédateur qui ne sait pas s’arrêter.


« Le temps est révolu où l’on pouvait se permettre de ne penser qu’à soi, qu’à sa communauté restreinte. Désormais, il nous est impossible d’ignorer tout ce qui nous lie et les responsabilités que cela suppose. Nous sommes plus de six milliards sur Terre, et il n’y aura pas de développement durable si nous ne parvenons pas à vivre ensemble ». Yann Arthus Bertrand (6 Millions d’autres)

JR a self-proclaimed “Urban Artivist" - “Encrages” Exhibition @ Galerie Perrotin

JR a self-proclaimed “Urban Artivist" - “Encrages” Exhibition @ Galerie Perrotin | BASIC VOWELS | Scoop.it

The Galerie Perrotin in Paris plays home to JR’s first major solo show, running through January 7, 2011. A self-proclaimed “Urban Artivist,” JR’s art is engrossed in a personal mission to unearth the humanity within the concrete urban landscape on a global scale. By flyposting his large installations in cities from Paris to Tel Aviv, the metropolitan jungles of the world both bear witness and participate directly in this ephemeral street art. The show will be a scaled-down exhibition of his omnipresent works, and transport his larger-than-life photographs of anonymous portraits from the walls of the streets onto the walls of the gallery.

Poignant Posters: Winter Collection

Poignant Posters: Winter Collection | BASIC VOWELS | Scoop.it
What a poignant reminder about how the words "Winter Collection" can take on an entirely different meaning depending on the person. New Ark Mission of India dressed up poor street kids in their everyday clothes - discarded newspapers, sacking and cardboard - and then photographed them for these moving posters.


The Mission is an organization solely dedicated to rescuing and rebuilding the lives of the destitute and dying people on the streets. It has marked a turning point for the poor people of India.

Fascinating And Unacceptable: A Toilet With Plants That Filter Waste | Co. Design | BASIC VOWELS | Scoop.it

Some designers have gone so far as to create toilets that completely disappear from view, so Philips’s conceptual Microbial Home is all the more striking for its use of human waste as a source of energy--even the kitchen runs on human poop.

Infographic: How Much Of The Earth Will We Eat By 2050? | Co. Design | BASIC VOWELS | Scoop.it

A funny thing has happened in the way well-meaning greenies talk about the earth. Call it the Al Gore effect: Faced with so many climate skeptics who deny the reality that 99% of scientists back global warming, the greenies typically resort to more and more wonkish sorts of communication. As if proving the climate skeptics wrong were simply about showing more and more data.

L’Ethiopie cède des terres agricoles à des compagnies étrangères en pleine période de famine : #FrenchRevolution | BASIC VOWELS | Scoop.it

Une enquête de Survival International a apporté des preuves alarmantes selon lesquelles les tribus indigènes sont spoliées de leurs terres agricoles les plus productives pour être allouées à des compagnies étrangères qui y pratiqueront une agriculture intensive d’exportation – alors que des milliers de personnes souffrent de la famine en cette grave période de sécheresse qui affecte le sud de l’Ethiopie.

Une fable de haute voltige sur les frontières.


Sur le port, la foule dense se faisait accompagner d’agitation et d’un vacarme assourdissant. L’assemblée des animaux migrateurs s’était réunie pour se mettre d’accord sur le jour du grand départ vers les terres et océans du Nord où abondent la nourriture et bien d’autres possibilités de lendemain sans tracas.

Sunflower Seed Portrait of Ai Weiwei

Sunflower Seed Portrait of Ai Weiwei | BASIC VOWELS | Scoop.it

If you are familiar with the art world, this portrait may look familiar to you. It is none other than controversial artist Ai Weiwei, the designer behind the iconic 2008 Beijing Olympics Bird's Nest Stadium. One of Weiwei's most recent works, Sunflower Seeds, was an installation at Tate Modern in London, England in 2010, and included a massive collection of one hundred million hand painted porcelain "seeds." With the help of 1,600 hundred people, Weiwei created this installation to speak out about the mass production trend of "Made in China."


Taking inspiration from Ai Weiwei's Sunflower Seeds, Shanghai-based artist Hong Yi set out to create a portrait of Weiwei using the medium of actual sunflower seeds. What started out as a small project inside turned into a big one outside, and the final piece required approximately 100,000 seeds!

Nein, nicht Tour de France, es gibt auch eine Tour de Farms. Wir wissen selbst aufgrund der vielen Lebensmittelskandale, wie wichtig es ist, sich gesund zu ernähren und unsere Lebensweise umzustellen und auf einen nachhaltigeren Lebensstil “umzusatteln”.


Bei Tour de Farms geht es um eine Fahrradtour entlang einiger Bio-Bauernhöfe in Wisconsin. Die Advertising Agency Cramer-Krasselt, Milwaukee, USA, hat dafür die Plakate umgesetzt und beeindruckend eine Verbindung zwischen Fahrrad und Gemüse/Frucht geschaffen.!
