Organic Ethical Silk on World Environmental Day
At Sawang Boran it is World Environment Day 365 days a year: always organic, always fair trade, always eco-friendly. This year’s special creation is a patchwork blanket that recycles our leftover organic silk fabric, uses only ethically made cotton from India, costs nothing to the environment, and pays a fair trade wage for the long hours spent by the artisans on this item. The 2012 theme for World Environment Day is Green Economy: Does it include you? UNEP says: The Green Economy is really something that is applicable all around you and it is easy to imagine how you fit in it. Visit the ‘What is the Green Economy?’ page to read a layman’s narrative of this concept. The UN Environment Programme defines the Green Economy as one that results in improved human well-being and social equity, while significantly reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities. In its simplest expression, a green economy can be thought of as one which is low carbon, resource efficient and socially inclusive.
