Less ways to wish for…. more ways to work toward it. – Metric

Taking the power is no easy task. It is not a short lived adventure. Though  progress is made, the finish line continues to surge ahead. When there are defeats, to give in assures not attaining the goal. The steady march of many feet make all the difference. We at fashionnation1on1 hope you are able, in some way, to add your footprint to the path of “redressing” the world, addressing the realities, and doing that little something, that done many times over, makes the world a saner and safer place.

In the title cut of Old World Underground, Where Are You Now? , the lyrics say,

“Every ten year-old enemy soldier
Thinks falling bombs are shooting stars sometimes
But she doesn’t make wishes on them
When she wishes, she wishes for less ways to wish for
More ways to work toward it
Ten year-old enemy soldier
Our falling bombs are her shooting stars”

Less ways to wish for…. more ways to work toward it. Thank you for that little refresher, Emily Haines and James Shaw!
It is refreshing to see more and more focus on this issue of waste, even if the movement is still tiny in comparison to what is needed. Watching one YouTube video leads you to so many others on a similar topic, so please watch often, gain ideas, meet others, and make your footprint.
This video, Redressing the Fashion Industry, from 2013 is an easy 13 minute lead in to the topic of waste reduction. It is enjoyable to see the items being designed and learn about the availability of the waste products. It is also great to learn that the company disposing of the waste gains “good press points” by being green with their trash. Perfect, win/win! Especially when that “trash” is a “treasure”. Take a look.
