Aussie damages the world with clothes ..

Australia’s obsession with new clothes and ‘fast fashion’ textiles hurting the environment …

“Australians are the world’s second largest consumers of textiles, buying on average 27 kilograms of new clothing and other textiles each year. So what is the environmental impact of this obsession?”

Please visit Australia’s obsession with new clothes and ‘fast fashion’ textiles hurting the environment – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) and Make your fashion sustainable

“Annual production forecasts from PCI Fibres found that while Australia sat just behind North America’s need for new clothing, the amount of textiles we consumed annually was twice the global average of just 13 kilograms per person per year.”


“Fast fashion produced from global supply chains is driving excessive purchasing of affordable new clothing often discarded after a few wears.”

clothes waste

I buy 2 or 3 quality pieces of clothing a year

Bear has decided to buy Aussie only, most of my clothes are R M Williams and made in Aussie. Unfortunately we don’t produce much in Aussie anymore. Good shirts are made in Aussie from Italian fabric. Jeans (moleskins) are English waxed thread, the cloth made in Scotland and jeans made in Aussie. Jumpers are merino wool made overseas and my jackets are made all over the world.

Of course I wear the best boots in the world R M Williams. None of the plastic crap!

Unfortunately socks and undies are a problem not produced in Aussie anymore.

Relaxing to an Aussie sunset

All very expensive but will last a lifetime and cheaper in the long run than all this cheap Asian plastic crap!

Please think about it? Everybody is carrying on about electricity generation costs, yet we are polluting more with our clothes, cars, plastic and etc.?

Australia remember when …


“Remember playing cricket out in the street or in the laneways with all the other neighbourhood kids back in the day?
Never had a set of stumps so we’d just paint the stumps on to an old 44 gallon drum and the bat had probably seen better days. No cricket ball but the good old tennis ball was just as good.
We’d play outside right up until the street lights started coming on and that was the time to call “stumps” and go inside for tea.”

via – Australia remember when

My Dad would come out with the strap in his hand at 5pm we always had “tea” at that time. All the kids would scatter home.

Bear has a good laugh every time there is an election politicians try to get votes by promising more money for “resources” for schools. Well guys these are the resources we had it was just the desire to learn and the total love of cricket. LOL 🙂

Funny how we made Australia a great place to live without all the “resources”. We had nothing.

The drug of choice for the lost generations …

Socialism it does not work!

Trials over decades with billions of participants have proven it.


actually it is not a generation but generations that have been mislead and it’s still happening. Nor do societies based on religion work. Actually while I am having a rant there are not too many Republics working well today are they?

That's crazy
