A Fashionable Earth Day

I know I’m a little late, but today is Earth Day. I was reading through the newspapers this morning and noticed multiple spreads on Earth Day and what we as citizens of the world could do.  Me, being a fashionista looked for the fashion forward angle. Here’s what I came up with.

 

World Food Programme Feed Bag by Feed, $59.95

  • Buying one World Food Programme FEED bag feeds a child in school for one school year.
  • School feeding acts as a magnet, dramatically increasing enrollment, sometimes by as much as 100 percent. It also improves performance at school; children concentrate better on a full stomach.
  • Girls who go to school not only marry later, but have half as many children than illiterate women. Furthermore, these children are healthier and better educated.
  • $20 a year can transform a child’s life and provide the tools for a lifetime of self-reliance. School feeding is a simple but effective way to beat hunger and poverty.
  • The FEED Project is a partnership between the United Nations World Food Program and Lauren Bush, WFP Honorary Spokesperson.

    More finds after the jump.

    Finding My Way…

    I’ve been blogging for almost two months now and I must admit that I love it. I love what I write about but I think that in these early stages I should tweak my model. I want this blog to be the best that it can be and encompass all of the things I love and would love to write about. So, with that being said, I’d like to include more posts about beauty, film, television, and art. In essence I see this going from just a fashion blog to more of a culture blog.

    With this new focus I will be changing the name of this blog, taking it off the wordpress servers to it’s own domain. Get ready for more posts about what is going on at the wonderful museums in NYC, street fairs in Brooklyn, and the beaches of the Hamptons.
