White’s Weaving: A new life for old denim

Rows and rows of jeans line every used clothing store and donation center in Indiana. The blue jean has become the standard American uniform, in part due to it’s durability and versatility. The average American owns around 7 pairs of jeans and denim represents a $15.4 billion industry, according to The NPD Group/Consumer Tracking Service. In the US, we throw away 12.4 million tons of textiles and footwear every year by EPA estimates; that’s about 68 pounds per household. Only 1.3 million tons are recycled, as rags, paper, insulation, or even building materials. It is encouraging to see efforts to...

Recently, Earth Charter’s Jim Poyser led a nine week session on climate change at the school. Among the many activities of the program, the children measured their carbon footprint, made bumper stickers and toured several sites where people are combating global warming. Behind the school is a small wooded area. As part of their work, the children...

Under the leadership of Pastor Mike Bowling, Englewood sought to make their Near...

Remarks to Sierra Club Clean Power Plan Rally, August 8, 2015 By Paul Severance, Chair, Elders Climate Action I am here today representing elders here in Indiana and across the nation who are working together in a campaign called Elders Climate Action.  We believe that the voice of elders who have a long-term perspective is especially needed today. It is hard to imagine a more short-sighted policy than fighting the Clean Power Plan.  There is no doubt that the increasing concentration of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere is heating our planet.
