The Rhino Stamp Project

A campaign designed to invade borders. There are 29000 rhinos left in the world. South Africa is home to 75% of them. Their horns sell on the black market…
imageMILL's insight:

Awesome use of a very traditional medium to cross borders and hit the problem at its source.

TBWA South Africa has launched a campaign to turn the humble postage stamp into a weapon against rhino horn poaching.

Poaching in South Africa is rife: the country is home to 75 percent of the world's 29000 remaining rhinos and with horns fetching up to $60,000 per kilo, it's a lucrative profession. Most are shipped to China, Vietnam and Thailand, where they are ground down and used in medicines believed to cure everything from headaches to cancer.

Fashion still doesn't give a damn about the deaths of garment workers

Fashion still doesn't give a damn about the deaths of garment workers | Sustainable business arts | Scoop.it
Lucy Siegle: A campaign launched this week aims to ensure the tragedy is a tipping point for both the industry and consumers
imageMILL's insight:

How can we convince brands to be more ethical, even as the official death tool tops 800 at the Bangladesh Factory Collapse, fashion brands continue with their same old policies. Lets be serious about the true cost of clothing and think twice about buying fast fashion, even if they have amazing CSR campaigns to make them look like they are ethical. This is a very good article by Lucy Siegle for the Guardian.

How Biodiversity Could Save Your Life

How Biodiversity Could Save Your Life | Sustainable business arts | Scoop.it

April 22, 2012 National Geographic

By Harold E. Varmus, Director of the U.S. National Cancer Institute; and Robert D. Hormats, Under Sectary of State for Economic Growth, Energy and the Environment

 

Tragically—and to the detriment of all of us—Earth’s biodiversity is disappearing at an alarming rate. This is due to factors such as deforestation, environmental degradation, and habitat destruction from agriculture, settlement, and other uses; pollution; climate change; and chronic over-exploitation or poaching of fish and wildlife species. Scientists estimate that the planet is losing species at a rate 1,000 to 10,000 times above the rate of species extinction that would occur normally without human activity. Particularly disheartening is the fact that, in many cases, we are losing species before we even know of them or know how they fit into our shared planet.... http://newswatch.nationalgeographic.com/2013/04/22/saving-lives-livelihoods-and-life/?utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=Social&utm_content=link_tw20130428ngnw-livelife&utm_campaign=Content

If the Bangladesh factory collapse demonstrates, cheap, sweatshop-made fashion is costing people's lives. We asked The Andean Collection's Amanda Judge the best way we can vote with our dollars.

imageMILL's insight:

After the horrific accident in the Bangladesh Sweatshop, Fair Trade is more important than ever - 

As a consumer, if you want take a pledge to never again buy a sweatshop product again, these 3 tips will make you a foolproof ethical shopper:

1. BUY FAIR TRADE: Fair trade companies are committed to going above and beyond to create safe and productive working environments for their staff. Visit the Fair Trade Federation website for a list of its members.

2. DO YOUR RESEARCH: Green America has a great “Responsible Shopper” website that warns consumers about brand-name atrocities. You can also find ratings on nearly 200 apparel brands at GoodGuide.

3. BUY USED OR RECYCLED PRODUCTS

8 Ways Pinterest Personalizes Sustainability for Green Brands

8 Ways Pinterest Personalizes Sustainability for Green Brands | Sustainable business arts | Scoop.it

March 8, 2013 - Taiga Company

“Social networks aren’t about Web sites. They’re about experiences.” – Mike DiLorenzo, NHL social media marketing director

The path of business sustainability is a journey.  And what makes up a journey?  Experiences.  As sustainability consultants, we're aware that high level sustainability concepts are universal and easier to understand.  However, what is compelling is the expression of how an individual or a company embraces those sustainability concepts to deliver results.  We're all captivated by the unique sustainability experiences but equally important is its delivery and expression.  Social media has proven to be an innovative and effective way to address two of the biggest hurdles around sustainability: defining what it is and providing the means and channels for sharing sustainability experiences.

Enter the world of Pinterest. http://blog.taigacompany.com/blog/sustainability-business-life-environment/8-ways-pinterest-personalizes-sustainability-for-green-brands
