Ecosustainability and sustainable development

Sustainable development is now a reality and it is promoted by more and more ecosustainable business

Ecosustainability is spreading more and more involving many sectors. And there is no exception for fashion that is naturally involved in green too.

The so wanted sustainable development is taking shape thanks to awareness campaigns for the environment, promoting new styles of life, the practice of recycling and reusing of waste materials for new uses; incentives from the government to make sustainable and more energy efficient our homes; new standards for sustainable architecture; diffusion of recycled and reused materials for the interior design of shops and restaurants that attract more and more customers, intrigued by new furniture solutions that give a new life to unused old objects with innovation and creativity

Such a lot of bars and restaurants are using old pallets for their interior design to create new benches or tables, so that old things can become interesting design objects with simple solutions. Moreover recycling and reusing in these places is not just for the furniture but also for tools, like dishes, bowls, cups. So it becomes cooler offering a drink in an old jar of jam, served on a wooden box for fruit as a tray. An example is the shabby chic style, now very trendy in Italy too, that is based on the recycling and reusing of old objects.

Ecosustainability 360 degrees! Furniture, tools and plants too. Close to pallets and old recycled furniture, another must is the vertical green. Sometimes it is placed for aesthetic and ecologic purposes, sometimes to have fresh vegetables always available to ensure customer healthy meals. Most of all now that more and more people care about what they eat and where the food is grown.

And dulcis in fundo also night clubs become green to be trendy! Night clubs, pubs, locations for events have already adapted their facilities to reduce the impact on the environment. The more widespread practices are recycling, vegetarian km0 menus, lighting systems and amplification with low energy consumption, toilettes designed for saving water, use of eco friendly products for the interior and so on. An interesting solution from The Netherlands is a dance floor that turns into energy the mechanical stresses generated by the movement of people. So let's go to dance because even that becomes ecosustainable!
