Plastic based #synthetic fabrics use 342 million barrels/ 5437 crore litres of #oil annually.

Some commonly used synthetic fabrics are #polyester, #nylon, #acrylic etc.

These #fabrics are made using fossil fuels and are #nonbiodegradable, hence they’re bad for our #environment.
Synthetic fabrics release #micro #plastics in the environment which can be #carcinogenic.
Let’s stay clear off them while future #shopping. But we don’t have to get rid of the ones we already own. We must take good care of our clothes, use what we already have till it wears out.
After the clothes wear off, we must either #upcycle or #recycle them.
Disposing our synthetic clothes in the bin means sending them off to the landfills & that just means a mountain of clothes for hundreds of years to come.

We believe #upcycling is the most #sustainablefashion.

The death of the #highstreet is not universally applicable. Empty shop fronts range from 5% to circa 30%.

Future of the high street may lie in more residential and entertainment space in the centre of towns, alongside #retail.

Jack Tindale, #retail expert from @Policy_Connect
We need to re-imagine the #highstreet. #Pet businesses can offer a tactile #shopping opportunity that isn't open to other commercial entities

As maddening is the crowd at Pune's Laxmi Road, as much as I hate the fact that parking is never available here, this emptiness of the road just didn't seem right.
Some shops have opened today, but for now, the shopkeepers are only waiting...

#pune #Covid_19 #Lockdown4
Have you ever seen #Tulshibaug this empty? For 1st time in10 years that I didn't see a single person inside. It seems to have been converted into some sort of parking lot

Have the markets in your cities/towns opened? What's their condition?
#lockdown #Covid_19 #shopping #market
Now that the non-essential standalone shops have opened, including those of clothes, do you feel safe to go out and buy the things that you might need, while also following proper #Social_Distancing norms?

I was totally delighted when the @V_and_A announced an exhibition on bags. For reasons #materialculture types in particular know, in the last two years I have been fascinated with #shopping bags and #knitting bags: vam.ac.uk/exhibitions/ba…
My former employer, @michiganstateu Museum, has a lovely collection of nearly 300 "designer" paper #shopping bags dating back to the famous @Bloomingdales bags of the 1960s. Here's a wonderful post about Bloomingdale's bags from @cooperhewitt: cooperhewitt.org/2016/05/04/the…
Also at MSUM care earlier textile shopping bags made by women. The history of the #shopping bag has been one told mostly by manufacturers and mostly by historians of technology and business, both based on invention of machines to manufacture paper bags. mo.ma/2m4XhKh

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.

Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

Walmart insists you show a receipt. They can’t do that. 1) you didn’t sign a membership agreement (aka Costco) and 2) once you buy a product, they’re searching your property. You have the right to refuse. @Walmart any comments on how your worker treated my mother?
2) She behaves differently pre-recording. My mother had to go into Walmart for a can of paint (we avoid at all costs) and she insinuated my mother was stealing when she said “no” to the receipt check. She threatened to call a manager.
(3) the manager arrived. Allowed her to belittle the customer and speak in a patronizing tone. She then doesn’t like hearing the word “sh*t”? Please 🙄 #walmart #KnowYourRights #Shopping #CustomerService
