un-green fashion houses
2009 July 12, Sunday
I was in Taipei recently and stayed at the very nice Éclat Hotel on Dunhua South Road. And right next to it is a boutique of a very famous fashion house. I noticed the store lights were on through the night. Not just in the windows but the whole store. (well, as much as I could see. up to the stairs leading upstairs) THAT IS SO NOT GREEN! My friend and I were disgusted.
Well, this is just one of the many stores that are doing this. I know these fashion houses are super rich and the electricity bills are nothing to them. But it’s not the money! It’s contributing to global warming!!!
I wish for them to realize they can help change by simply not leaving all those hot, hot helium lights on during off-hours. Perhaps just the ones in the shop front windows be on. They are leaders in the fashion retail and have a great following. If they help spread the word many people will also follow.
