ECO FRIENDLY HOTELS


Alot of hotels and resorts like to brag about how green they are. Unfortunately, their passion for the environment usually stops at those “if you’re going to re-use the towel, hang it up” signs you find littered around the bathroom. We’re not saying that these aren’t steps in the right direction, but finding a hotel truly worthy of the phrase “going green” is not hard if you really look. Here’s a list of our favourite American hotels that go above and beyond to be environmentally conscious without skimping on luxury.

JIBO - THE DAILY GOOD

Jibo, the world’s first family robot is here but we are not sure if we should be excited or creeped out by it. Essentially acting as a giant moving “Siri”, Jibo comes oddly close to the movie “Her” in which what can happen to a society when it becomes dependent of technology is portrayed. If it’s going to be as efficient as their Youtube video shows, it could be a good investment for the price of $500 but new products often come with their share of glitches…

What’s your opinion on this?

FAST FASHION VS SLOW FASHION


Cheap fashion and factory collapses have led to an emerging slow fashion movement that hopes to make people think twice about the clothes on their backs.

With people now thinking more about where other goods, like their food, come from, there’s hope that fashion will also be more heavily scrutinized, but it seems that it still has a long way to go.“The concept of ‘slow fashion’ has emerged and just that the word is now out there shows that yes, more people are aware of the issues behind fashion and are talking about it. At the same time, fast fashion is not in trouble,” says Maudie.

HERE AND ELSEWHERE - THE DAILY GOOD


“Even during times of political and social strain, photography has the power to illuminate its subjects’ humanity” cleverly wrote Jamie Sims, a cultural reporter for the New York Times. As the Israeli-Palestinian conflict continues to takes lives in the Middle East, the New Museum in New York City launched last Wednesday an art exhibit featuring pictures of people from Saida, a Lebanese town affected by sectarian tensions between the 1950s and the 1970s, in an show titled ‘Here and Elsewhere.’
You have until September 28th to admire el Madani’s work, and by the same token be reminded how universal our struggle to construct personal identity, whether in front of a camera or in real life is.
