This post is sponsored by Frank And Oak. EcoCult is choosy about who we work with — support our work by supporting our partners! As retailers shift towards responsible manufacturing, the sustainability of fabrics is more important than ever.  In the past few years, fabric mills have been turning to surprising raw ingredients — from seaweed and pineapple leaves to coconut fibers and kapok trees — to innovate “cleaner” fabrics into our wardrobes.    As it stands, clothing production and retail represent at least 2 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions, with most of the i ..read more

These are the types of questions we should be asking ourselves. Better yet, let’s ask the 11 popular athletic brands, including Nike, PINK, and Athleta, selling sports bras and tops with synthetic fabrics that—according to testing by the Cen ..read more

Ecocult
by Debra Anazonwu

Photo credit: Bosch Foodies and professional chefs alike, up until recently, swore by their gas stoves. They raved about how quickly gas stoves heat up and how delicious food cooked on a gas stove tastes. But the negatives of natural gas appliances outweigh the positives. Indoor emissions from gas stoves—especially poorly-ventilated ones—include toxic pollutants such as carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, and methane. And over three-fourths of gas stove methane emissions measured in this study occurred when the stoves were turned off, mainly due to small post-meter leaks. This conglomeration of nox ..read more

Hola! This is a Spanish translation of our popular article Is Leather Truly a Byproduct of the Meat Industry? Soy una persona preocupada verdaderamente por la sostenibilidad en la industria de la moda y, por ello, a menudo me critican cuando uso o promociono algo producido con cuero.

La ganadería es altamente contaminante y dañina. Lo sabemos. Por un lado, las emisiones de mundiales de esta actividad son de casi el 18% de las ..read more
