Until recently, Elizabeth Cline was a typical American consumer. She鈥檇 grown accustomed to shopping at outlet malls, discount stores like T.J. Maxx, and cheap but trendy retailers like Forever 21, Target, and H&M. She was buying a new item of clothing almost every week (the national average is sixty-four per year) but all she had to show for it was a closet and countless storage bins packed full of low-quality fads she barely wore鈥攊ncluding the same sailor-stripe tops and fleece hoodies as a million other shoppers. When she found herself lugging home seven pairs of identical canvas flats from Kmart (a steal at $7 per pair, marked down from $15!), she realized that something was deeply wrong. <p><br />Cheap fashion has fundamentally changed the way most Americans dress. Stores ranging from discounters like Target to traditional chains like JCPenney now offer the newest trends at unprecedentedly low prices. Retailers are pro顱ducing clothes at enormous volumes in order to drive prices down and profits up, and they鈥檝e turned clothing into a disposable good. After all, we have little reason to keep wearing and repairing the clothes we already own when styles change so fast and it鈥檚 cheaper to just buy more. </p><p><br />But what are we doing with all these cheap clothes? And more important, what are they doing to us, our society, our environment, and our economic well-being? </p><p><br />In <i>Overdressed, </i>Cline sets out to uncover the true nature of the cheap fashion juggernaut, tracing the rise of budget clothing chains, the death of middle-market and independent retail顱ers, and the roots of our obsession with deals and steals. She travels to cheap-chic factories in China, follows the fashion industry as it chases even lower costs into Bangladesh, and looks at the impact (both here and abroad) of America鈥檚 drastic increase in imports. She even explores how cheap fashion harms the charity thrift shops and textile recyclers where our masses of cloth顱ing castoffs end up.</p><p><br />Sewing, once a life skill for American women and a pathway from poverty to the middle class for workers, is now a dead-end sweatshop job. The pressures of cheap have forced retailers to drastically reduce detail and craftsmanship, making the clothes we wear more and more uniform, basic, and low quality. Creative inde顱pendent designers struggle to produce good and sustainable clothes at affordable prices.</p><p><br />Cline shows how consumers can break the buy-and-toss cycle by supporting innovative and stylish sustainable designers and retailers, refash顱ioning clothes throughout their lifetimes, and mending and even making clothes themselves.</p><p><i><br />Overdressed </i>will inspire you to vote with your dollars and find a path back to being well dressed and feeling good about what you wear.</p>

<p><b> Strategies and techniques for making a living with intensive food production in small spaces </b></p><p> There are 40 million acres of lawns in North America. In their current form, these unproductive expanses of grass represent a significant financial and environmental cost. However, viewed through a different lens, they can also be seen as a tremendous source of opportunity. Access to land is a major barrier for many people who want to enter the agricultural sector, and urban and suburban yards have huge potential for would-be farmers wanting to become part of this growing movement. </p><p><em> The Urban Farmer </em> is a comprehensive, hands-on, practical manual to help you learn the techniques and business strategies you need to make a good living growing high-yield, high-value crops right in your own backyard (or someone else's). Major benefits include: </p><ul><li> Low capital investment and overhead costs </li><li> Reduced need for expensive infrastructure </li><li> Easy access to markets. </li></ul><p> Growing food in the city means that fresh crops may travel only a few blocks from field to table, making this innovative approach the next logical step in the local food movement. Based on a scalable, easily reproduced business model, <em> The Urban Farmer </em> is your complete guide to minimizing risk and maximizing profit by using intensive production in small leased or borrowed spaces. </p>
How Culture Shapes the Climate Change Debate

<p>Though the scientific community largely agrees that climate change is underway, debates about this issue remain fiercely polarized. These conversations have become a rhetorical contest, one where opposing sides try to achieve victory through playing on fear, distrust, and intolerance. At its heart, this split no longer concerns carbon dioxide, greenhouse gases, or climate modeling; rather, it is the product of contrasting, deeply entrenched worldviews. This brief examines what causes people to reject or accept the scientific consensus on climate change. Synthesizing evidence from sociology, psychology, and political science, Andrew J. Hoffman lays bare the opposing cultural lenses through which science is interpreted. He then extracts lessons from major cultural shifts in the past to engender a better understanding of the problem and motivate the public to take action. <i>How Culture Shapes the Climate Change Debate</i> makes a powerful case for a more scientifically literate public, a more socially engaged scientific community, and a more thoughtful mode of public discourse.</p>
