Net Impact on Carbon

Hi All!

I'm working on a project for Anvil Knitwear,a leading sustainable apparel brand, for the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. If you click the link below, click Join this Team, then Join the Fashion Swap Challenge. I'd love to hear your feedback!

Manufacturing and delivering clothes requires energy and generates climate-changing CO2. Over 20 billion pounds of clothing ends up in our landfills every year. An estimated 1 in 10 clothing items gets bought, never worn, and simply thrown away. Instead, throw a clothing swap party!

Beware of Corporate Consulting Firms Offering Awards for Corporate Ethics

Is it all good?

Corporate Ethics is a subject often discussed and debated in our Sustainability Management classes here at The New School. How can we jump past the distrust in third party verifiers of corporate ethics? Ultimately we realize standards and regulation must be put in place. Here is a wonderful article from Slate magazine which does a good job explaining the situation. It was forwarded to us by our friend Denny Houton Swenson, Executive Producer at Light On Productions. I met Denny at the Net Impact National Conference where she and her team were screening "In Search of the Good Corporate Citizen."
