LET'S PARTY...let's party...party...arty...(test for ECO)



Today is the WED (World Environment Day), a day dedicated to our planet. Despite the fact I don’t believe in special Days (Valentines Day, Women’s Day etc), I strongly believe WED is one of the principal vehicles through which the United Nations stimulates worldwide awareness of the environment and enhances political attention and action. On 5 June 1972, the Unated Nations Conference on Human Environment (also known as the Stockholm Conference) began, later on it was established by the United Nations General Assebly in 1972 and finally on 1973, the first World Environmental Day was a fact!! Since then, every year WED is hosted by a different city with a different theme and is commemorated with an international exposition on the week that 5 June is on.

The United Nations declared 2010, to be the International Year of Biodiversity. A celebration about the variety of life in earth, (variety of speceis, ecosystems,).Under the theme 'Many Species. One Planet. One Future', this year’s event will celebrate the incredible diversity of life on Earth as part of the 2010 International Year of Biodiversity. (for further infos, just watch the video. Believe me it totally worth it!!)
This year’s global host is Rwanda, a country of exceptional biodiversity that has made huge strides on environmental protection.

The agenda is to give a human face to environmental issues; empower people to become active agents of sustainable and equitable development; promote an understanding that communities are pivotal to changing attitudes towards environmental issues; and advocate partnership which will ensure all nations and peoples enjoy a safer and more prosperous future.

So tommorow, it’s a great opportunity for us to act in an environmental friendly way, by swishing, (to exchange our clothes, shoes, accesories that is) and combine our love for fashion with love for our planet!!!

As you’ve already been informed by Thaleia, Clemmie & Melroy (the girls behind the event) this Swap not Shop Party goes EVEN MORE ethical…So be there!!!

Ps. the blog starts to obtain its environmental orientation, so henceforth, will try to approach fashion issues with an eco-point of view.....So, stay tuned!!!
