Opciones sostenibles en el Ecuador para salvar al planeta

24/08/2018 28 comments

Si de algo debemos estar todos conscientes es del deterioro avanzado que está sufriendo nuestro planeta, el uso y abuso excesivo de recursos minerales y animales a un ritmo abismal; originan cambios drásticos en nuestra grande y vulnerable bolita azul. Y la moda no escapa a ello…En diversas oportunidades hemos podido observar peticiones para que cese el uso de pieles de animales para abrigos, carteras, etc., así como campañas para purificar manantiales y afluentes de agua que se han visto contaminados por el uso de químicos para teñir los tejidos ya que estudios realizados en mayo de 2018 indican que de no tomarse medidas en el asunto, en solo 10 años habrá una crisis del agua que ocasionará a su vez, crisis humanitaria debido a la contaminación existente (y en desarrollo) de afluentes hídricos en latinoamérica.

Esto está cambiando. Cada vez más marcas de ropa y de otras ramas han tomado la iniciativa de transformar esta realidad abrumadora y comenzar a usar recursos ecoamigables para el planeta a través del consumo sostenible

¿Sabías que para hacer una camiseta básica de algodón se usan 2.700 litros de agua? Esto debe parar ¡YA!

¿Han visto un documental de 2015 llamado The True Cost acerca del impacto ambiental que provoca la moda? Les comparto el link de Netflix ACÁ.

¿Qué es el consumo sostenible?

En 1994 se realizó un Simposio en Oslo, Noruega acerca del Desarrollo y Consumo Sostenible, y la definición que se le otorgó fue la siguiente (textual):  “El uso de servicios y productos que respondan a las necesidades básicas para llevar una mejor calidad de vida y reducir al mínimo el uso de los recursos naturales y materiales tóxicos, así como las emisiones de residuos y contaminantes sobre el ciclo de vida del producto o servicio, a fin de no poner en peligro las necesidades de las generaciones futuras”

Ecuador consciente

Como les mencioné líneas arriba, diferentes marcas se han unido a esta lucha (que es de TODOS) y Ecuador no se queda atrás. Les traigo algunas de las marcas que incorporan el consumo sostenible en este post. Hagamos eco de las mismas y comencemos a pensar y actuar en pro de nuestro planeta, a fin de cuentas es el único en el que vivimos.

I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering
what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a
blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m
not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Hi this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering
if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually
code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so
I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
