for hippin' me to g=9.8 so I can then share it with eco-peeps looking' for the hotness.
French designer Sophie Young of g=9.8 creates sexy lingerie made of white pine trees.
Sophie is extremely ecologically-minded as she practices the 3 “R's”.
1. Reduces (the consumption: her clothes are made to last)
2. Recycles (the fibers of the pine trees she uses) and
3. Reuses (everything she can).
Architect in her first life, she’d always been aware of the eco thing but really started
thinking about it when she had her first child. Her little boy being
allergic to many things, she had no other choice but to pay attention to
what his food and the environment around him. Sophie is full of energy and ideas: does her own
composting, has no bath-tub at home, collects the rain-water, only eats
vegetables and fruits in season. When sending out her lingerie, she recycles cardboard boxes that
she collects in the near-by industrial park.
Sophie says, ”We don’t have time anymore to talk about it. Now it’s time to act. In fact the
message that’s been delivered for the past 15 years which is not correct . It is not “save
the planet” but to “save manhood”. The planet will probably survive even though its
future inhabitants will only be little cells that don’t need air to live. That should
motivate everybody, no?
The earth will not make it without our daily green actions and the education, starting
with the youngest ones, is essential."
Just know that all of this can be done while wearing sexy lingerie ….
