This week, Stella McCartney announced that she will launch a United Nations fashion industry charter for climate action in December in a bid to get more designers to think about climate change. Read our latest post to get a break down of why the charter is being launched and what this means for the fashion industry.
On June 1st President of the United States, Donald Trump, made the announcement that the United States would no longer support the Paris Climate deal.
Given Trump's previous skeptical attitudes towards the validity of man made global warming, it comes as no surprise really that one of his earliest actions as President was to withdraw the USA from the Paris Agreement set fourth to lower emissions and take on greener policies in order to reduce global warming to an optimistic 2 degrees.
What does Trumps decision mean for the rest of us and further still the environment? As the the second largest contributor to carbon emitter, Trump's withdrawal is well, a pretty big deal. Trump's action signal to the rest of the world that he doesn't care about reducing emissions and at the point isn't even bothering to pretend to care about reducing them i.e. he doesn't give thatch of a f*ck about the Planet.
