Comments Off on Vegan Fashion Week is coming to Los Angeles

Just a few days before Fashion Week begins in New York, the world’s first Vegan Fashion Week will debut in Los Angeles. Starting on February 1 with a party at the LA Natural History Museum, Vegan Fashion Week will be a four-day event that will feature fashion shows, exhibitions, a talk from Nobel Prize-winning climate scientist Robert Lempert and discussion panels about topics like animal rights , social justice and technology. French stylist Emmanuelle Rienda is curating the event, and the theme will be “facing our time.” The idea is to explore the challenges of climate change through art, nature and science. Related: British Fashion Council commits to a fur-free London Fashion Week “Vegan Fashion Week will be a tribute to the animals and an ode to the end of animal exploitation in all forms,” Rienda told Dezeen . “I want to ignite conversations and debates within the industry by educating, elevating and drawing connections between our most important values: our respect for human life, animal rights and the environment.” Animal activist group PETA and the non-profit group Fashion Revolution are supporting the event, which hopes to bring vegan avant-garde fashion to Los Angeles . Organizers also aim to empower vegan designers and show that “cruelty-free is the new luxury.” In addition to the fashion show and discussion panels, there will also be a two-day fair at the California Market Center, where visitors can purchase vegan beauty products and designer pieces. Related: LA City Council unanimously agrees to ban the sale of fur Rienda admitted that the vegan label can come across as aggressive and judgmental, especially in the world of fashion. She is hoping that the vibe for the event will be “very inclusive and open.” Vegan designers and non-vegan brands looking to change their environmental impact will all be part of Vegan Fashion Week. Rienda said that it’s not about being vegan, it’s about what designers are doing to improve their labels and evolve. She added that being vegan isn’t just about the animals. Instead, it is about being good to humans and all other beings on the planet. Vegan Fashion Week will take place in locations throughout the Los Angeles area from February 1 to February 4. + Vegan Fashion Week Via Dezeen Image via Shutterstock

Comments Off on Researchers shoot 5 live pigs in the head to study blood spatter patterns

Animal rights activists are accusing a group of forensics researchers of the cruel and unnecessary killing of five pigs in New Zealand. Researchers at two public universities in New Zealand took part in a forensics study that involved shooting live pigs in the head in order to study blood spatter patterns , which they claim can help them learn about human injuries and help criminal cases. Experimenting on live animals in the name of science may not be as common as it once was, but advocates for animals are still working to end this cruel practice forever.

Comments Off on How to make coconut chia pudding

Have you ever spotted one of those cups of delicious chia pudding in Whole Foods , and then you look at the price tag and it’s three dollars? Fortunately it is super easy to make your own fresh chia pudding that is just as good and is way cheaper than the pre-packaged version, using just dried bulk chia seeds and your choice of creamy beverage and/or fruit – my favorite mixer being coconut. Chia pudding makes a delicious nutritious breakfast that is low in sugar, paleo friendly, and a great source of protein and omega 3 fatty acids for those on a dairy free or vegan diet.

Comments Off on McDonald’s to Add Lab-Grown ‘Chicken’ McNuggets to its Menu

McDonald ‘s just announced it will be the first fast food restaurant in the United States to add lab-grown meat to its menu. Following the success of Sergey Brin’s lab-grown burger experiment in London last year, McDonald’s says they will ‘grow’ their own chicken McNuggets in special laboratories across New Jersey. The move is expected to reduce the number of real chickens needed to supply the company’s 35,000 outlets across the globe.

Google Purchases Dubai’s World of Islands to Reconfigure into Google Shaped Floating Cities

Comments Off on Google Purchases Dubai’s World of Islands to Reconfigure into Google Shaped Floating Cities

At the beginning of 2011, Dubai ‘s most notorious man-made islands, a.k.a. The World, made a splash with news that they were slowly but surely sinking into the sea . Now, in a bizarre twist of events that even had us surprised (and trust us, we thought we’d seen it all when it comes to The World), Google has announced that it purchased the troubled archipelago and will be reconfiguring it to form the shape of the Google logo. While we’ve seen the search engine giant dabble in everything from green energy to self-driving cars , this is the first we’ve heard of them making their way into island real estate. Once complete, the Google-shaped landmasses will be self-sustaining floating cities, and the company reports that it plans to retain a portion of the development for its own private use and sell the rest off to the highest bidders.

Comments Off on Dogs in China are being killed to make leather products

Most people have heard of China’s appalling dog meat trade, but did you know that dog and cat skin is also used to create leather goods like gloves, belts and pet toys? According to a new report from PETA Asia , the Chinese meat and leather trade is using the flesh of dogs and cats in order to squeeze out every penny of the manufacturing industry. And if you purchase leather, it can be difficult to tell what kind of leather you might be getting.
