  • The textile and chemical industries share the dubious honor of being the worst water polluters in China. It takes as much as 200 tons of water to produce just one ton of fabric, and noxious chemicals used in the dyeing and milling processes often pollute waterways. The National Resources Defense Council started a pilot project with five textile firms in China that has led to the development of ten best practice guidelines that, if followed, would both reduce factories’ environmental impact and save them money. Levi’s and Gap plan to introduce the best practices to their suppliers within the year. [WWD]

  • Edie Falco digs unisex kids clothing: “It’s hard to justify spending a lot of money on kid’s clothes because they grow out of them in five minutes. And my kids don’t really care what they wear. So I occasionally buy something for my son and he wears it until he grows out of it, and my daughter wears it. I just make sure that it’s unisex.” [Us]

I was like, ‘You’re not my sister anymore because you didn’t tell me!'” [WWD]

  • Fashionista has some suggestions for getting rid of an unsightly $3,000 “It” bag, if that is a problem you are lucky enough to face.
