Sustainability Notes from: http://threaddocumentary.com/
In 2009, the world used 3 trillion gallons of FRESH WATER to produce 60 billion kgs of fabric; it takes 700 gallons of FRESH WATER to make 1 cotton T-shirt.

20% of industrial fresh WATER POLLUTION comes from textile treatment and dyeing.

The loss, in dollars of materials, due to failure of companies and individuals in the US to RECYCLE, has been estimated at $30 billion per year.

1 trillion kilowatt hours are used every year by the global textile industry = 10% of total CARBON IMPACT.

TEXTILE WASTE occupies nearly 5% of all landfill space; The ave US citizen throws away 68 ins of clothing/yr — 1 million tons of textiles are thrown out every year

Ownership Sharing: Capitalism and the Fear of Collectivism

Vídeo Posted on

The Myth of Communism and Socialism debunked through hearing from someone who has actually Lived it and contrasting it with Capitalism in America.
Capitalism is the leading ideology of commerce in the world. Communism, in contrast, is not a system of commerce but a system of governance which regulates commerce. It has been said that communism operates from the starting point of ‘first serving others then self’ and capitalism, especially in America, serves ‘self first then others.’ Can we merge these two starting points, working with what is already here, to create a viable, inclusive capitalism with democratically managed government and business?
