Sustainable Style for NYFW – 10 Pairs of Jeans in a Ford

That’s right – 10 pairs of jeans in a Ford, and not because you’re using your trunk as a closet.

With eyes on New York runways this week, sustainability in style is top of mind… But how do recycled fabrics reach those of us who aren’t buying prêt-à-porter straight off the catwalk? Ford Motor Company has long recognized that sustainability is a key component in the future of great infrastructure and compelling design. In an effort to make its products more eco-friendly, Ford is continuously implementing innovative, sustainable materials and fabrics into each new vehicle. Screen Shot 2015-09-14 at 10.57.40 AM

Take recycled post-industrial cotton, for example. Vehicles such as the Ford Escape and Fusion (and even the tough F-150!) actually contain the equivalent of about 10 pairs of jeans, 26 bath towels, or 31 t-shirts – these sustainable textiles components are used as carpet insulation and sound absorption in the vehicles.

Furthering its mission to promote sustainable design, Ford teamed up with Coca Cola to use recycled plastic to create carbon polyester fibers in car seats. Constantly looking for more partnerships to continue the effort, including research with Heinz to explore the use of tomato fiber, Ford is at the forefront of stylish sustainability. Additionally, Ford is currently the only automaker to use REPREVE, a 100% recycled material used in its car seats worldwide; by using this material, Ford will divert more than five million plastic bottles from landfills this year alone!

Catch the end of summer, let all the scars disappear.
Catch the end of summer, let all the scars disappear.

ScarAway Silicone Scar Sheets can be worn during the day, but why not accelerate scar fading while you sleep, a great time to take advantage of rapid skin cell turnover.  Apply one of these ultra-thin, durable, flexible, and breathable sheets before you drift off each night and let it help fade, flatten and shrink red, raised (or keloid) scars while you sleep. These professional grade silicone sheets are the gold standard for scar care, and they work on both new and old scars.   The versatile 1.5” x 3” sheets may be cut to size for smaller scars, or worn side-by-side to cover larger areas.
