A green leap 11.6.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Climate change has assumed an importance of mammoth proportions in recent times. While global leaders are dilly-dallying on, and in some cases pulling out of, climate change pacts, others are coming forward to do their bit for the environment — in highly creative ways at that. Athleisure brands are leading the way in this. While sustainable organic fabrics have made their way into the industry, sneakers made from plastic bottles, manufacturing scrap and ocean trash have upped the game recently. "High-end clothing brands are making sustainability cool," says Urvashi Verma, a fashionista. "Organic clothing has lesser impact on soil and water and reduces the amount of chemicals you bring into your life. It is also more durable." Recycled marine plastic debris is the basis for Adidas's latest range of blue sneakers, that reuses an average of 11 bottles per pair. Allen Claudius, one of the few sneaker collectors in India, is enthused about this new offering. "I am an environmentally-conscious person and ...

Health and Family Welfare Minister KRRamesh Kumar has said the contractor of a toll plaza near Hoskote-Malur would be "dealt with appropriately" if he continues to pose hurdles to lay water pipes to pump water from the KCValley to Kolar district. He was replying to a matter raised by KSManjunath Gowda (JD-S) in the Legislative Assembly on Friday. Gowda said Lanco, which has taken up the contract of managing the toll plaza on the Bengaluru-Kolar national highway, is not allowing laying of water pipes near the plaza. "Laying of pipes would in no way disturb the plaza or the highway. It is going to run along the road. Kolar is facing severe water shortage. Recycled water from the Challaghatta valley is expected to fill the tanks of the district by December this year. But the contractor is not allowing the work. A case has to be booked against him," the Malur MLA demanded. Leader of the Opposition Jagadish Shettar said the contractor should be warned as he is interfering in the government work.
