Comments Off on Sylven New York has vegan shoes made from apples

“Sustainability is an often-used term, yet it is universally undefined – especially when it comes to fashion,” stated Sylven New York, a shoe company looking to take steps in the right direction towards more environmentally-friendly business practices. “For us, sustainability means defending and protecting our natural resources, and minimizing the environmental impact of our consumption and decision-making.” Founder of Sylven, Casey Dworkin, shares a birthday with Earth Day . It’s a connection she’s carried throughout her college years and experiences with footwear and fashion companies. But it wasn’t until she decided to start her own business that she was finally able to truly commit to the mission to “…seek to create the most sustainable, designer footwear on the planet. And that means conducting responsible practices throughout every single facet of our business.” Related: Loci vegan shoes give back to animal conservation efforts The collection of boots, sneakers and flats is a reflection of this commitment. The company regularly experiments with, and adopts, a variety of bio-based products to replace toxic leather, which pollutes land and water. Apple leather is at the heart of the vegan boots and sneakers. Natural rubber sourced from the sap of the hevea tree, coconut husks for the insole and recycled cotton laces show the commitment to creating an entirely plant-based and vegan shoe.  Being a sustainable company requires action at all levels of the business. With this in mind, Sylven is dedicated to only work with ethical Italian shoemakers who offer fair wages and safe working conditions, in addition to quality work meant to last. Sylven works to reduce waste at every phase by using recycled paper, recycled cotton dust bags and recycled and recyclable shoe boxes. The company also offers repairs to extend the life of shoes and works with recognized brand TerraCycle who responsibly recycles and disposes of shoes in order to strictly minimize those that end up in the landfill.  “We only have one planet , and one lifetime (that we’re conscious of)!” Sylven stated on their website. “And we aim to make the most of it. We intend to leave this place a little more replenished, and a lot more beautiful and inspired than how we inherited it. Sustainable thinking is a process, and our commitment is perpetual.” + Sylven New York Images via Sylven New York

Comments Off on Richard Wool’s Non-Toxic Eco-Leather Protects Animals And The Planet

For those who love shoes, there’s a constant battle between brands that are high quality and brands that are ethical. Leather has long been the favorite material for making shoes since it’s durable, flexible, and beautiful. But it’s not very kind to the animals who have to lose their skin to make it. Not to mention that tanning  leather  is a toxic endeavor that creates polluted air and water. That’s why University of Delaware professor Richard Wool is working on a leather alternative made from natural fibers and oils. Companies like Puma and Nike are already considering it for new designs. Click the link to learn more.

Data Garden Debuts World’s First Plantable Music

Comments Off on Data Garden Debuts World’s First Plantable Music

The innovative digital musicians from the Data Garden label are giving fans an alternative to wasteful vinyl EPs, by offering downland codes embedded on seed paper . Digital music in inherently an eco-friendly genre, with artists that have been known to create tracks with laptops, synthesizers, or even upcycled 8-bit video game systems . To put it in perspective, these revolutionaries can tour the country by packing all of their music gear in a suitcase, instead of a tour bus. To bring awareness to the connection between nature, music, and technology, a collective of Data Garden artists held a plantable “record release” party this week at Bartram’s Garden , the country’s longest running botanical garden.

New Wind Farm In West Virginia Uses Batteries to Improve Performance

Comments Off on New Wind Farm In West Virginia Uses Batteries to Improve Performance

A wind farm which opened in this week in West Virginia marks an important milestone in wind energy — the farm is using a battery system to store energy and improve performance. Laurel Mountain wind farm , which consists of 61 turbines spread out over 12 miles, is designed to be more grid friendly, smoothing out the bumps in energy production, which will hopefully allow it to be more profitable. The battery bank is not an exotic new technology, but a string of 1.3 million D and C cell Li-ion batteries which can store a fraction of the farm’s output.

New Report Says Fracking Causes Small Earthquakes

Comments Off on New Report Says Fracking Causes Small Earthquakes

A report by UK energy company Cuadrilla Resources , which has investments in hydraulic fracturing (or fracking) for natural gas, found that pumping fluid into the ground at two of their hydraulic fracturing sites was the cause of two minor earthquakes and 48 other small seismic events. It is sometimes mentioned that earthquakes can result from fracking, but not often is a conclusive report put on the line to verify it. In Cuadrilla’s case, the report has halted operations in the UK and has gone to public officials who are expected to release a new ruling on the safety and procedures surrounding hydraulic fracturing for natural gas in the UK.
