|Imagine this Authentic Miles Wood Jersey , someone sets up their loom or spool with the finest cashmere wool from Peru. They create a beautifully made and designed sweater which you buy and wear for several loving years. After some time, the sweater style is out of fashion, the color has faded or it has shrunk and you have grown. This is the lifetime of a well made and loved cashmere sweater. Now, what?s next? You recycle it, right? Well Authentic Brian Gibbons Jersey , yes you can recycle it, but what about repurposing it? Repurposing in fabrics and textiles has taken on a new name and action called ?craftivism?.
Recycling old textiles is not a new concept. The origination began in England 200 years ago. It was referred to as the ?rag and bone? industry where old textiles were collected then sent to wiping and flocking businesses for the wool and other fibers were sent to be reclaimed into new garments. All textiles were recycled, both man made and natural. You may ask why? Well, think about it. It?s estimated that over a million tones of textiles are thrown away every year, over 50 are recyclable Authentic Pavel Zacha Jersey , yet only 20 is actually recycled. Reduce, reclaim, recycle has been an eco phrase for many years now in North America. People are thinking about where and how products are made and what happens after its use is depleted. Business and personal accountability and responsibility are in the forefront of most minds and the progression of it is moving the emphasis from the object itself to the action taken. In other words, activism plus crafts equals craftivism.
Many textile and fiber artists have been aware of this insurgence since their early 101 courses. The concept of craftivism is now a common phrase used by people who have little or no training to make and alter existing materials into new products. It is referred to as a ?socially engaged art practice? a call to question and interrupt the prevailing codes of conduct in regards to mass consumerism. Craftivism?s approach to the recycling of post consumer fabric and textile waste is the activity of re purposing. For example, taking an old wool sweater and cutting it into a new pattern and changing it from a wool sweater Authentic Cory Schneider Jersey , into wool oven mittens, woolen puppets, etc. Taking a previous fabric craft, i.e. knitted, crocheted Authentic Kyle Palmieri Jersey , macram? and finding a new purpose for the materials, skipping the great big process of recycling. It?s an activism which can be taken all over the world, by crafts people, artists and imaginative people alike.
Alternately, the Textile Recycling Association has started its own movement to stop the waste of old textiles and fibers into landfills and sending it to merchants for re sale. The TRA is not taking the carftivism approach yet Authentic Drew Stafford Jersey , since there is no money changing hands. Capitalism does need to lead to consumerism, which is not the case with craftivism. TRA controls the majority of post consumer textiles which are collected by charities such as The Salvation Army and Oxfam. The process of the TRA is to recycle and reuse textiles.
Still wearable shoes are resold in places like India, Africa and Eastern European countries. Wearable clothes are recycled and provided to African countries for emergency use, also sent to other colder countries to provide warm winter clothing.
Unwearable clothing is recycled in different ways. Pants and skirts are sold to the flocking industry where they are shredded for fillers in car insulation, roofing felts Authentic Adam Henrique Jersey , panel linings and furniture padding. Unwearable woolen fabrics are sold to fiber reclaiming companies to make yarn or wool. Unwearable cottons and silks are sorted into grades for cloths and paper.
The world has changed over the past few decades. People are starting to think about the products the buy, how they were created and where, and what to do with them once they have served their purpose. Companies have been created within this new environmental approach to consumerism, but what about the everymanwoman? People now have a cleaner more pro active choice when considering what to do next with their used clothing and textile. Get active in your own home, community and environment. Recycle Authentic John Moore Jersey , reuse, reduce and now re purpose. Get active, you just may create a new sought after product, just from re purposing your clothing in the donation pile.
If there's one thing the French know how to do well, it's food. Food is more of an art (and for some Marcus Johansson Jersey , a quasi religion) in France, and so I knew I would be remiss in my duties to readers of paris-eiffel-tower-news if I did not go and seek out Paris's finest gastronomic glories for you. Sampling the following is not an option 锟?it's a must!!!
In Part I, we discovered real French bread at Poilane's and the Raspail organic food open street market. Now, we uncover the top level Lafayette gourmet food court, and Paris's finest fromageries in Androuet's 5 Parisian cheese shops to you.
Riot of Tastes and Colors
The Galeries Lafayette is one of the most distinguished and famous shopping landmarks in Paris. Their high-fashion displays and grand old-world architecture (including a very fine stained-glass dome) make any shopping there a remarkable experience. I have to admit though that I tend to spend most of my time loitering around its breathtaking Gourmet food court.
The food court is located on the top floor of the Galeries Jesper Bratt Jersey , and is a veritable riot of tastes and colors. There you'll find everything and more to tantalize the dedicated gourmet: a bakery with a dizzying array of specialty breads and pastries (testament to France's continuing love affair with baked goods of every description); a cheese counter with at least a hundred different varieties of cheese (both French and imported); meats and seafood; a deli offering the very best specialty foodstuffs; and fruit and veggies of every origin from all around the world 锟?all pr.
