Are Eco-Friendly Products Only for the Privileged?

image

One of the biggest challenges eco-minded shoppers face in their quest to shop sustainably is that environmentally-friendly products often come with a higher price tag than standard products

While these higher costs can be justified by a number of factors including research and development, expensive raw materials, sourcing practices, etc., the higher costs can mean that only a small proportion of us can afford to buy eco products. Often sustainable products are not designed to be accessible to all and are marketed as a product for the privileged. However, if environmentally-friendly producers are to really make a difference, eco products need to be accessible to everyone and compete with traditional lower –cost products. 

New Eco-Fashion brand Rapanui Bucks the Trend

An exciting development in low cost sustainable fashion is the recently launched 2013/14 collection from new eco-fashion brand Rapanui, which aims to bring sustainable clothing to customers at high street prices. Rapanui’s clothes are created from sustainable materials including bamboo, eucalyptus and organic cotton and produced in a factory powered by wind turbines. Prices start from an accessible £9.95. (About €11.50)

In addition, Rapanui work with their factories to create safe working conditions for workers and ensure a fair living wage. In July Rapanui teamed up with the Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF) to promote the Save the Bees campaign. The fashion company designed a range of t-shirts with a 90 per cent smaller carbon footprint than an average cotton T-shirt and donated £5 from every bee T-shirt towards the campaign.

Earth Overshoot Day 2013

Today is Earth Overshoot Day 2013, a concept originally developed by Global Footprint Network partner and U.K. think tank New Economics Foundation. It marks the date when we begin living beyond our means in a given year i.e. human consumption is creating more carbon dioxide than the planet can absorb. In 1993, Earth Overshoot Day fell on October 21 and is arriving earlier due to current trends in consumption. 

In fact, according to Global Footprint Network’s calculations, our demands for resources now equates to that of  more than 1.5 Earths and data indicates that we will require the resources of two planets before the middle of the century.

Earth Overshoot Day is a stark reminder that we are consuming more than what the planet can provide.
