Oscar the Grouch
Posted by: LYNette
If you’re anything like me, then you probably learned your ABC’s by watching Sesame Street. Oscar the Grouch was one of the main characters that confused me a lot because he lived in a garbage can.
In retrospect, I think we should all be like Oscar – he’s got this “sustainability” thing completely figured out!
There’s another Oscar who seems to care about being green…
James Cameron’s honey bunny Suzy Amis hosted this fashion contest, Red Carpet Green Dress. The dress she wore to the Oscars last weekend (above photo) was designed by the winner. The coolest thing about this sustainable a dress is that it was made out of ahimsa (peace) silk .
There’s a bit of controversy over whether the pupa inside the cocoon dies or not in the process of making ahimsa silk. Nevertheless, it’s about raising awareness, gaining knowledge, and changing behaviors. So if any of you decide to garb yourself in silk, please consider even the little ones on this earth!
Yet another reason to thank insects for the sacrifices and gifts they make for us.
Just for fun: Can you see the Orchid Mantis???
