“Never anything but pure greenwash” – Greta Thunberg calls out fashion industry



Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg has used an interview with Vogue Scandinavia to call out fashion brands that label themselves as “sustainable”

In the interview, Thunberg says that clothing brands need to take more responsibility for the environmental impacts that the production and distribution of their products has.

It follows the activist posting a tweet that accuses some brands of “greenwashing” whereby they produce ads that make consumers think their products are sustainable.

In the interview, Thunberg says the last time she purchased a new item of clothing was three years ago and even it was second-hand.

The climate activist went onto note that fast fashion is used by many as “disposable”… calling for a “system change”.

Fast fashion is known to be the production of “rapid, low-cost clothing” designed to meet seasonal trends

The UN believes the fashion industry is “the second-most polluting industry in the world”… accounting for more than 20% of wastewater globally.

In regards to carbon emissions, the sector is responsible for about 8% of the total worldwide.

This follows a landmark climate change report concludes global warming is widespread, rapid and intensifying – and humans are to blame.

According to the report – climate change is now “affecting every inhabited region across the globe”.

Ron DeSantis breaks silence over Donald Trump charges



The Florida Governor says he won’t get involved

Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis has broken his silence on the Manhattan District Attorney pursuing charges against Donald Trump.

DeSantis has vowed his office will not get involved if the matter trickles into the former President’s adopted home state – that is Florida.

But the Florida governor stopped well short of offering support to Trump, instead poking fun at the situation.

A New York grand jury is in the final stages of determining whether Trump should face charges over an alleged payment to porn star Stormy Daniels.

This is all related to an alleged affair.

The dismissive and tongue-in-cheek comments made by DeSantis travelled quickly.

Trump’s allies immediately started attacking the Florida governor across social media, suggesting he will face a political price for failing to rally around Trump.

This was before the former president responded himself, saying “Ron DeSanctimonious will probably find out about false accusations & fake stories sometime in the future, as he gets older, wiser, and better known”.

The episode is just another example of the tension and rivalry between two of the GOP’s biggest stars as they battle for party supremacy.
