Happy Easter weekend everyone! Hands up if you’re reading this whilst munching on some chocolate! I know I am whilst writing this!
I’ve got some good links for you this week:
I had to check the date on this to make sure it wasn’t an April Fool’s post – James Dyson is designing a giant vacuum on a boat to help clear the oceans of rubbish. Yup, you read that right, a giant marine hoover that’s going to suck junk out of the sea. I don’t know, on one hand I think it’s great that someone’s trying to do something about marine pollution, but on the other I can’t help but feel sad that we’re having to resort to technology to clear our seas, rather than simply changing our behaviour. What do you think?
I’ve been watching Hope, a short film (15 mins) which looks a the plight of the critically endangered mountain gorillas in Rwanda, and the people fighting for the survival of the gorillas. Narrated by Sir David Attenborough, it’s a really great watch – sad, inspiring and uplifting all at the same time. If you have time to watch it all, here’s the trailer.
A mini-interview with me on Prime Location’s blog.
For ethical fashion fans – a list of 30 ethical fashion blogs from around the world. Moral Fibres is on there – thank you so much Ceri!
This interactive piece on the Bangladeshi fashion industry is very powerful.
Is it a myth that sodium laureth sulphate (SLS) causes cancer?
Batten down the hatches – El Niño may be on it’s way this year! El Niño is a natural occurrence, but scientists think it’s happening more regularly since CO2 emissions started increasing.
Bargains ahoy in the Frank & Faith ethical sale!
From the Moral Fibres archive: a fun and easy Easter craft that can be done with kids, and a simple trick to tell if eggs are off or not (the non-chocolate variety of course!). If you’re all egged out and are planning a spot of gardening over the bank holiday weekend then here’s how you can attract bees to your garden (the bees will be eggstatic if you carry out some of these tips!), and if you’re planning on getting crafty then here are some great DIYs for repurposing old clothes to get cracking on with! I like puns, what can I say…!
That’s it from me – that’s all yolks! See you next week (when I promise I’ll be pun-free!) and enjoy your bank holiday weekend! Oh, and thanks to everyone who took part in my reader survey. I’m currently going through the responses and will share them with you shortly!
