“People have never looked so ugly as they do today. We just consume far too much.. I’m talking about all this disposable crap. What I’m saying is buy less, choose well. Don’t just suck up stuff so everybody looks like clones. Don’t just eat McDonald’s, get something a bit better. Eat a salad. That’s what fashion is. It’s something that is a bit better.”

—Designer Dame Vivienne Westwood, speaking to reporters after her Autumn/Winter show at London Fashion Week on Sunday.

    I think she´s right but she also contributes to the disposable crap. For example, she designs shoes for Melissa, made in PVC, that are not expensive and that really contaminates the environment.

    The particular type of PVC that Melissa is made from is MELFLEX. This was created by and is a registered trademark of Grendene S.A. located in Brazil (the parent company of Melissa). Melflex is versatile, durable, totally re-usable and extremely environmentally friendly with no heavy materials in its formulation. Moreover the product is non-toxic, hypo-allergenic, cruelty-free, void of animal products and extremely comfortable on the feet as it is made with mineral salts based on calcium zinc which is not aggressive to your health. PVC is considered to be one of the most sustainable Thermoplastics available.
