Hey, Happy Earth Day!

"Be the change you want to see in the world."
-Mahatma Gandhi



Today, April 22, is 



Our planet is at a turning point. 
The massive global migration underway now from countryside to cities
 will demand huge investments in energy, water, materials, waste, food distribution, and transportation over the next 25 years. 
If the right investments are made now, 
this unique opportunity will be the catalyst for dramatic changes in the built environment 
and the fight against carbon emissions and climate change.

This is one of the advocacy campaigns of Earth Day New York.

So me & my girlfriends acted in a couple of ways today:

My girlfriends who came to the city today
took the bus instead of driving.

We also took the subway instead of taking a cab.

Plus, we walked to their bus station on their way home instead of taking the subway!

Today, 
I used one of the dresses on
H&M CONSCIOUS COLLECTION.

It is part of H&M's work for a more sustainable fashion future.
This helps support their actions for a more sustainable future in fashion. 
At H&M it’s not only about the fabric you feel between your fingertips, 
it’s also about the environment and the people around us. 
They believe that together we can create real and long-term changes 
whether it’s in our day-to-day activities, 
our support of local communities, 
or the launch of more sustainable collections.

The H&M Conscious Collection stars Amber Valletta 
– a supermodel and philanthropist. 
Indulge in dazzling key pieces that combine beauty and awareness to create fashion perfection.

          



Lyocell is the generic name for a biodegradable fabric that's made out of treated wood pulp. 
It's commonly sold under the brand name Tencel®.

Tencel is made from sustainably grown Eucalyptus.

Also, 
H&M was the first fashion company to launch a global garment collection initiative. 
Today, you can hand in any clothes you no longer want. 
That way, we can reduce waste and give old products a new life. 
Eventually, we’ll close the loop on textiles so nothing ever goes to waste.

We had dinner at
 in Lincoln Center.

The Smith is a casual American Brasserie.

In a very fast paced urban city like New York,
you really get to appreciate this practice.


I also like the fact that they recycle their wine bottles and use them as water containers.

How about you,
what have you done today?

Or what do you do everyday to help save Mother Earth?
