Going Green? - Fashion or Politics

Posted by Jeff / September 25, 2008

For those of us who have an interest in both fashion and ethics, this may be for you. Since fashion is a reflection of the times it makes perfect sense election campaigns are talking about going green for tomorrow, yet there are efforts to green up a notoriously un-conscious industry happening today. Fashion like many other industries takes it's toll on our mother earth. Take in account for example that the cotton industry uses 25 percent of the world’s pesticides, with terrible consequences for wildlife and aquifers; that in an increasingly profligate society, recycling clothes might be a worthwhile endeavor.That’s not to say that wearing an eco-statement on your sleeve means shuffling about in a hemp sack. Local gal pals designers who can be found on 4523 St-Denis in their boutique+workshop MOLY KULTE have created a whole range of clothing and accessories made from recycled textiles. Giving them twists, cuts, prints, or whatever it takes to give new life to forgotten materials whose fate would otherwise have been the dump.

The mostly-women’s collection of shirts, skirts, jackets, and dresses runs from extra small to large; and, if your object of desire doesn’t quite fit, the designers will happily take it in for you. Men, you can shop too, because Moly Kulte carries a line of men’s tee-shirts, jackets, and ties. Oh, and if you’ve got a child or a dog a little digging might just source a sweater for them, too. So when thinking green here's just another local way to GO green.
