A store called in-ku...

¨The product’s character represents carefully crafted quality rather than obscure inventive design. Clothing without season, time, age or trend; the philosophy being slow workmanship to create a life long product which won’t end up in landfill. Universal utility has always used garment construction techniques which cannot be used in the current fast pace production methods of this age. Each wholesale client has always been offered a bespoke collection tailored to the flavour of their stores.¨

We need a new solution

The Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) is addressing these critical issues in an effort to make cotton grown around the world more sustainable. BCI is trying to fundamentally shift how cotton is grown by focusing on three objectives:
  1. decreasing the environmental impact of cotton
  2. improving labor standards
  3. increasing the economic livelihood for farmers
BCI's approach is simple. The collaboration works with local organizations on the ground to train cotton farmers about better farming practices, such as integrated pest management, planting border crops and setting up more efficient irrigation systems. Farmers are educated about labor issues, including the devastating effects of child labor. NGOs on the ground work to leverage local customs.

Shades of Blue...

¨Plant life is not only good for the environment 

but can improve air quality and our moods. To help educate its readers about the glory of greenery, Japanese publisher Mainichi Newspapers created a newspaper that you can plant. The Green Newspaper, developed with advertising agency Dentsu Tokyo, is made of paper laced with Japanese flower seeds including pinks, poppies, snapdragons and English daisies. To make the paper, the company dissolved waste paper into a pulp and mixed it with the seeds. The eco-themed articles and images were printed using plant-based, eco-friendly dyes so that the paper wouldn’t harm the earth. Readers needed to simply tear-off a bit of the newspaper, burry it in moist soil and wait for the shrubs to appear. 

A bloomin’ marvellous idea.¨
