Subject: NRDC blocks disastrous Everglades mining scheme!
I am thrilled to report a major victory in our long courtroom battle to block one of the Bush administration’s most dangerous attacks on the environment: a proposed massive rock mining project in Florida’s fragile Everglades.
On 4/27/2011, 4-rth's founder Doug Donehoo donated several yoga clothing items for a silent auction to benefit Japan - which was recently devastated by a 9.0 Earthquake and ravaging tsunami & subsequent nuclear disaster. Having spent time in Japan, Doug felt personally connected to the devastation there & was delighted to use 4-rth's sustainable fashion '4' another good cause!
97% of all apparel bought each year in the USA is manufactured abroad -- most often in horrific, un-sustainable conditions with dire consequences 4 the environment, the planet & its ecosystem.
100% of 4-rth's fabric, and all Yoga apparel & related trims, are proudly made in downtown Los Angeles -- in the iconic fashion district!
4-rth sustainable fashion is excited to partner up with Los Angeles-based Elevation Fitness. 4-rth will be providing eco-friendly apparel to Elevation for their incredible fitness staff in addition to their new clients when signing up as members. 4-rth will also have a small but exclusive retail presence in their newly designed facility to open up this summer on Sunset Boulevard.
