En los últimos días de enero 2018, la Presidenta de Chile, Michelle Bachelet anunció la creación de ocho nuevos parques nacionales con una superficie total de más de 4,5 millones de hectáreas.

4 razones para enamorarse del slow fashion

/ 2018-05-01

Después de la industria del petróleo, la industria de la moda es la que más contamina el medioambiente. La práctica de producir nuevos estilos de prendas cada tres o cuatro semanas y a precios muy bajos, no solo produce serios daños sociales y ambientales, sino que también nos presiona a consumir constantemente. ¿Cuanto tendrias ahorrado si no fuera por la nueva moda de jeans que apareció en Zara o las camisas baratas de H&M? Se dice que las cosas buenas siempre demoran más en llegar. Mientras la industria del fast fashion produce a niveles más frenéticos, la sociedad está haciend...

La manufacturas de alta calidad en Chile: ¿por qué la industria es importante?

/ 2018-04-22

Chile es el productor #1 de cobre en el mundo. La minería en Chile constituye más del 50% de sus exportaciones, lo que pone un tope natural en el PIB del país. Hay que darse cuenta que eventualmente, las materias primas se acabarán. Si bien el cobre chileno no se acabará pronto, siempre se puede comenzar a hacer planes para un futuro más sostenible. La economía chilena ha estado en deceleración durante años y solo tuvo una tasa de crecimiento del PIB de 1,2% en 2017. A pesar de las inversiones que hace Chile en tecnología e innovación, que pretenden revitalizar la economía para el...

6 Reasons Why You Should to Care about China’s Shift to Sustainable Fashion

/ 2018-04-12

China is not necessarily the first country that comes to mind when someone says: sustainable fashion. Known for crippling pollution, overcrowding, and a toxic water supply, China is far from an ecological paradise. However, recent outcry over work conditions and air quality has made the Chinese government aware of the urgency of developing a new status quo, especially in manufacturing and fashion. China is reinventing itself. As the population transitions to the middle class, consumers are demanding products that are not only affordable, but also high-quality and sustainable. ...

Why Should You Care about Skilled Manufacturing in Chile

/ 2018-04-12

Chile is the world’s #1 producer of copper. When mining makes up over 50% of your exports, there is a natural cap on GDP. Eventually, the raw materials will run out. While copper is far from tapped out in Chile, it is never too early to start making plans for a more sustainable future. Chile’s economy has been slowing down for years, hitting just a 1.2% GDP growth rate in 2017. Despite Chile’s investments in technology and innovation, which are meant to jumpstart the economy f...
