Rick Perry made a jaw-dropping attempt to get in on the sexual assault debate.

Fossil fuels prevent sexual assault? Not even close.

Fibershed

Look for organic fibers for you and your family. Polyester is a synthetic fiber derived from coal and petroleum.

Can compost close the loop? Nature's process of recycling organic matter through decomposition (with bacteria, heat, and water) offers a way to return materials and nutrients to the soil as an incredible additive. In a 'soil to soil' fiber system, the ingredients of our clothing -- natural fibers & natural dyes -- can be returned to the soil at the end of their useful life, by way of biodegradation and compost. At the #2017WoolSymposium, the panel on Enriching & Enhancing Our Soil-to-Soil System will feature three fresh takes exploring uses of compost. Shown here is one of Sasha Duerr's (@sashaduerr) #compostcolors palettes, a rainbow of natural dyes made from fruit + veggie waste, which can itself head to the compost bin after providing color to cloth. A natural dyer, professor at @ccatextiles, and author of several books on natural dyeing, Duerr will join the panel to share her perspective on plant-based palettes and their role in regenerative fiber systems: fashion that enriches, enhances, and gives back more than it extracts.
Reserve a ticket to learn more, Saturday November 11th in Point Reyes Station; linked in profile.

Harassment, then helplessness, in state capitals

"After being groped in public by a powerful committee chairman, one young state legislator in an Eastern state, serving her first term in office, decided to take the political risk of reporting the assault. She learned she would need to report the incident to the ethics committee overseeing her state’s legislature. Then she learned the chairman of the ethics committee was the man who assaulted her." 😱
