1º Aniversary | Fash&Mark

3 Mar

Sometimes this is a fashion blog

Sometimes this in an anti-fashion blog, against silly empty girls

Sometimes this is a Marketing blog

Sometimes this blog hates marketing’s deceiving campaigns

Sometimes this is an activist blog

Sometimes this is an humanitarian blog just about social causes

Sometimes this is just a blog with cute images

Sometimes this is a blog with meaningful quotes

Sometimes this is an ecological blog

At times it is even a sponsored blog

But every single time it’s a reflection of me!

Happy Birthday Fash&Mark! :)

Thank you!

Thanks to the ones who follow, the ones who read, the ones who just want cute images, the ones who sponsor, the ones who like and dislike when the subject touches their hearts or goes against their beliefs. Also thanks to the ones who are trying to shut down Fash&Mark asking to “cease and desist”.

Thanks for visiting and commenting during Fash&Mark Environment Day!

Art, Fashion and Environment

27 Apr

On April 21st 2011 was the first anniversary of the BP environmental disaster and some artists infiltrated the Tate Britain Museam to protest! Apparently BP is a big sponsor of the institution and the artists want this partnership to end. So they covered a naked man in oil-like liquid on the classical sculpture exhibit room


Christine Esposito creates cool pieces with soda cans. Check her website for other products

Ana Yago and journalist Jose Antonio Gimenez have a design studio – Sanserif Creatius – where they create beautiful cardboard furniture. It’s ecological and pretty stylish.

Polish Designer Karina Marusinska creates jewelry with industrial waste. Sounds difficult? When I saw the photo of the pile of garbage I was shocked!!! So many things there! I’m glad someone decided to use it wisely…

Zoe Bradley is an awesome artist. He creates astonishing things with paper and he even worked for McQueen!

Love this idea! Art + Toys + Recycling

Christian Louboutin messed with garbage?! You have to see it to believe it!

ADS | Green Creativity

27 Apr

It looks an alien inside job, but it’s not! Mini just opted for a greener ad, literally!

Mini “From town to country and back again.”

When a printed paper ad is transformed into… nothing, that’s ecological, right? Clean ads are what we need!

I present you Rain-campaign. What is that? Basically, the ad is only seen when it rains or if anyone sprays it with water. Is obviously Eco-friendly as it avoids the use of paper or any other resources that affect the environment negatively!

And also cool concept is Sand Advertising. These 2 campaigns are both developed by Fresh Green Ads’ smart guys!

Conceptual campaign where balloons were put on cars, to show what Co2 does to the earth.

Reutilization at the highest level – Rona tried to highlight the company’s paint recuperation program, the billboard was placed under an Apple Nanochromatic placement and the slogan was “We collect leftover paint”. SO SMART!

Another cool one by Denver Water

Tropicana recently created a light billboard that was only powered by Nature. Well… to be more accurate, it was powered by oranges!

See the explanation on video.

Eco-minded Editorials

27 Apr

Despite looking kinda impossible to join awesome fashion concepts with boring sustainable ones – It’s not! Apparently there are a lot of photographers and magazines that can put it together perfectly!

Uk Vogue | Nov 09 by Tim Walker | “ Make do and mend”



Paper couture by Soon Tong

“From brown paper, toilet paper and tracing paper to old magazines and newspaper, this series is a nod to the sheer ubiquity of paper in urban life, and an indictment of its wanton waste.”

Old Oil into Candles

27 Apr

The first time that I heard about this new product I was thrilled. I’m that kind of person that freaks out when the cooking oil is overused and has to go to the garbage.  I read once, that one drop of cooking oil pollutes the same water as a human being pollutes is all life. 1 DROP!!! (I’m aware that this is exaggerated, but it scares huh?)

Did you know that just 1 liter of wasted cooking oil can contaminate 1 million liters of water?!

So you gotta love this machine! Oon Home Recycling Solutions is a Lisbon-based company that develops innovative green products.

Oon Candlemaker transforms old cooking oil into fragrant decorative candles! How awesome is this?

You are not just saving the planet by polluting less (reducing), but you’re also recycling and reutilizing oil as candles. And the best part is: The candles have fragrance!

For me this is one of the most (if not the most) creative sustainable gadget of all time!

Fragrances:

  • spicy orange
  • cozy jasmine
  • blueberry smoothie
  • sea lemons
  • handpicked apples
  • sweet coffee cream
  • naked soul (whatever that is)

The Oon Candlemaker is a great product and has an astonishing design. It only costs 199€ and it comes with seven pods (that neutralize the oil smell, and provide color and fragrance to the candles). Check how it works on their website.

1 Watch = 1 Tree planted

27 Apr

Los Angeles based company, WeWood (could it have a funniest name?!), is committed to environment and the health of earth. WeWood crafts wood watches and for each sold product the company plants a tree, thanks to a partnership with American Forests and Global ReLeaf.

The key words of WeWood are: Eco-iconic, eco-minded, non-artificial nor toxic materials and sophisticated sustainability.

WeWood goal: Restore Mother Nature.

This wooden watches are available online, if you want to check it out.

I’m still wondering how will you know if they planted a tree…? And, if they use wood as they main raw material, isn’t it the right thing to do – to plant a tree? If they want to plant a tree so much why they advertise it as kind of its core business?

Do you think the same? Do you like this idea? And what about the watches – cool?

Turk + Taylor’s Spring/Summer 2011

27 Apr

Turk and Taylor’s 2011 Spring/Summer collection combines organic cotton, recycled hot air balloon, recycled polyester, dead-stock fabric and hemp to create a simple, colorful and sustainable summer collection. We can’t ask for more…

Bohol Jacket – made from 1980s hot air balloon (say what?!)

FASHION VS ENVIRONMENT – What do you think?

A Cap into a plant!

27 Apr

In Japan they found out a funny way to use PET caps. The company Merry projects created the “Merry farming kits” which includes a tablet of compressed dry soil, that’s just the right size to fit inside a standard plastic soda bottle cap, along with basil seeds for planting.

Apparently they can be find anywhere in Japan, from bookstores to the street (they make several guerrilla campaigns).

I think this is amazing, they created a way to reutilize caps with a fashionable and useful item. They’re basically turn garbage into a beautiful plant :) And nowadays urban gardening is so trendy!!! Of course you could also make a necklace out of the caps, but it would look pretty ugly! :p

Check more photos here.

Fashionable Biodegradable shoes

27 Apr

OAT shoes had a big concern: Why can’t we have stylish and “green” shoes?

They realized that everyone bought fancy and fashionable sneakers and that was freaking difficult for people to go for greener choices, because the options were hideous!

So they came across with a sexy and green choice. OAT shoes created a new shoe concept that can be buried after use, cause they’re biodegradable!

Ok… the shoes are fancy, the concept is cool, but I would rather prefer the guy on the photos? Can I buy that online? :P
