Climate Change Endangers the Philippines

The Philippines is a center for climate change. It is vulnerable to monstrous typhoons, deadly earthquakes, and other natural phenomenon caused by global warming. These disasters kill thousands of Filipinos, and cause billions of Pesos in damages to infrastructure and properties each year.

We need to change. There are many climate solutions available to us, but many of us lack the funds and information to invest in these products and technologies already being used by other countries.

Fortunately, Philippine businesses are in a unique position to invest in sustainable solutions that can help the environment and increase profits simultaneously. Businesses can also serve as examples for individuals, organizations, and other businesses to emulate.

Introducing Green Philippines

Green Philippines is the country’s biggest annual display of environment-friendly products and technologies. It is the convention of choice for businesses that manufacture, sell, and purchase sustainable solutions.

Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace) and Kellan Lutz (Twilight) graced the 2014 Oscars Red Carpet with ensembles both fashionable and eco-friendly. They attended the 86th Academy Awards proudly wearing attires sponsored by Red Carpet Green Dress, an international dress design contest with a sustainable twist pioneered by Suzy Amis Cameron, wife of Avatardirector James Cameron.

Now on its fifth year, the design competition is held in search of the best tuxedo design and the best womenswear design, as submitted by fashion designers and design firms from around the world. Winners get the honor of having their creations produced for and worn by an actor/actress attending the Oscars.
The 2014 winner for best tuxedo design was Jomnarn Dul from H Brothers, one of New Zealand’s top menswear brands. Meanwhile, the womenswear design winner was Alice Elia, a student of ESMOD, the longest-running fashion school in Paris, France.
Olga’s dress was made from 100 percent Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified “peace silk,” naturally dyed crimson with sappanwood and madder root extracts.

Meanwhile, Lutz’s suit was made of fibers derived from post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. His jacket is 45 percent GOTS silk and 55 percent recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET). His pants are made from logwood-dyed hemp, and his waistcoat, from hemp and century-old Spitalfields silk dyed with marigold flowers.
Red Green Carpet Dress is making waves in the fashion industry. It’s getting plenty of attention from media too–and for good reason! Even Greenpeace has expressed its support by saying how the competitions efforts provide us a “glimpse into the fashion industry’s potential to make clothing that doesn’t pollute our planet.”
