The Importance of Ethics in Fashion

The Importance of Ethics in Fashion

The fashion industry has grown out of a type of consumerism which is distinguished from others because of its lack of necessity. For this reason, and others, it’s long been seen as one of the least ethical industries around. Not only that, but many of the production processes behind producing clothing, footwear and jewellery have fallen into disrepute, as illegal labour practices come to light and sacrifices – such as the lives of both humans and animals – are made in the name of beauty.

The Evolution of Ethics

In modern times, however, the fashion industry has become more aware of its own responsibilities in terms of adhering to ethical business practices which not only strive to avoid damage, but actively work to heal certain aspects of the world we live in. And since fashion products are so often made by people in developing countries, it’s often the case that these ethical practices involve giving something back to the communities from which our clothes and jewellery originate.

How Can Ethical Fashion be Achieved?

This commitment to community can be achieved in many ways. Fair wages, improved living conditions and free access to education all tend to be issues in developing countries. Because of this, companies such as Gemporia strive to both inspire and support through a system of fair business and community involvement. Educational programs and fair wages, combined with good quality working conditions, go a long way to supporting workers who live in countries where these practices are neither a given, nor necessarily a right. If you’re interested, you can visit Gemporia’s website at for more information about the work they do with The Colourful Life Foundation.

The Role of Sustainability

In addition to ethical practices for people, the fashion industry is now beginning to take seriously the role it plays in global sustainability. Recycled and repurposed materials have all begun to play a large role in fashion, particularly at grass roots level where vintage has become one of the hottest trends of the 21st century so far.

This growing commitment to what’s known as ‘eco fashion’ can been observed in every step of the design and manufacture process, from the use of organic yarn to consumer incentives for cutting carbon footprints. Perhaps most importantly is the fact that designers are now incorporating sustainable practices into trend-led garments, which has opened the sustainable market up to a wider audience.

5 Best Practical Hints How To Infuse Positive Energy

Positive energy comes when your mind is calm and relaxed.  If you really want to calm your mind and infuse positive energy in your system, first of all stop your incessant chattering inside your mind. It is not so easy at first, but with some practical hints, you can eventually reach the state of absolutely calmness.

1.       Seek solitude within

John McGrath Healer says it is often we seek calmness among friends, family etc. but the real calmness is generated within us. You can’t attain solitude by merely going to a remote spot or living in the woods. External solitude helps only when you are able to reach an internal silence.  First fix your mind on the spot between your eyebrows, settle yourself down and if a thought arises let it be and return to the stillness. This can take some practice as the mind is built to think and problem solve. Maintain a journal where you can write your daily experience’s from your practice.

2.       Follow a definite routine

Healer John McGrath says everything must be clear and definite in your life. The first thing to be done is to fix a definite routine and stick to it. Some people are afraid that such a rigid regimenwill make their life mechanical. That is not true. You can only break the rules when you know them well. For beginners, there is no way you should divert from a strict regime. This is the only way to discipline a wayward will. We should plan our waking hours – how to discharge our daily duties, what to do with our spare time, what thoughts we should cultivate etc.

When you form good habits, your energy chakras are strengthened. Then it will be easier to find solitude within without much diversion.

3.       Meditate and improve its quality

Meditation is the foremost method to generate positive energy within. Pay more attention to quality rather than quantity. Increase the power of concentration. Absent-mindedness during meditation is not only a sheer waste of time; it is a sure sign of lack of spiritual fervor. Many people in the name of meditation dwell in worldly thoughts. You must sit in meditation only when a proper mood is attained. For many people meditation seems to be an invitation to sleep! This later on becomes a bad habit.

4.       Have a fixed center of consciousness

You must have a fixed center of consciousness. You can find it only by seeking the source of your ‘I’ consciousness or by trying to seek contact with the Self. Hold on to this center of consciousness always. Never choose a center lower than the heart. Never try to concentrate the mind on the lower centers, even though some Tantric books prescribe it.

5.       Need for simplicity

Be straightforward in all your dealings. Give up hypocrisy and conceit. Be child-like, not childish. But be reserved and aloof in the company of negative minded people, in a dignified way without being haughty. You can be full of sympathy for others in an impersonal way and yet be aloof and reserved, and not allow them to come near you in a personal way.

Everything becomes simple the moment we become simple. You should not open your hearts to all, but should open it to pure and spiritual souls. There is no need to wash your dirty linen in public. Some people take advantage of your confessions and turn them against you to make your life miserable.

The Top Three Hidden Myths of Indian Matrimonial Sites


Indian Matrimonial Sites in today’s times are a fertile field for lumpen elements to hone their skills on unsuspecting men and women of marriageable and not-so-marriageable ages. Let me make it clear that we are not casting any aspersions on the management of these wedding related websites. These websites were all started with noble intentions by the founders – an idea to create a modern platform for men and women to find each other and make the whole process of meeting prospective brides and grooms more efficient and effective.

But somewhere along the way, as with most other mass market internet properties, the seedy elements uncovered the hidden potential of the medium and began to use the anonymity and the relative ease of use that these sites provided to their advantage. As the founding partner of one of the best Pre Matrimonial detective agency in Mumbai, I have been privy to hundreds of cases regarding matters of fraud and blackmailing and I feel I am well-equipped to point out three of the myths regarding the use of Matrimonial Websites in India.

Myth No.1: Indian Matrimonial Sites are loaded with profiles of eligible men and women of all ages.

I hate to shatter this perception but the truth is far from reality. The fact remains that a huge percentage of the members on matrimonial websites are shady and definitely not eligible for marriage! To begin to understand this, you need to first of all understand how a marriage website makes money (to the tune of hundreds of crores!). Unlike social media sites like facebook, a matrimonial website’s business plan is built upon the model of charging every new member for registering on the website and lock them with a monthly or yearly payment plan. In which case, the websites do not care how reputable a person is before they are able to create their profiles on these website. It is humanely impossible to do a background check of every new registrant on such mass-market sites and so every Tamal, Diksha and Hari are able to register themselves on the website for a few thousand bucks, create a fake profile and begin their game plan of conning others. You have to remember the 80:20 rule. If there are 80 crooks on such sites, there are also the 20 odd innocent ones who have joined the site with good intentions and these are the hapless ones on whom these fraudsters play their con game which could vary from extracting money to even carrying on a fake romance and blackmailing them later on the basis of photos or other such evidences that can shame a person and his / her family. And then there is always the lie – I am rich, handsome / beautiful, successful and reputable – So Marry Me! It is only after the marriage that the other person’s true colours begin to emerge and then it is time for a divorce. The innocent boy or girl has by now lost all hope on the institution called ‘Marriage’!

Myth No. 2: Matrimonial Sites are the Only Avenue for an Arranged Marriage

Not true. Agreed that Matrimonial sites are a great platform that uses the power of the internet and technology to meet prospective partners who are somewhere out there but they definitely are not the be-all and end-all for those desirous of marrying a suitable and bright partner. Let us not forget what I have mentioned in Myth No. 1 above – the risk is too great in today’s times to only trust and pin your life’s hope on a Matrimonial site that any ***hole in the country with ten k in his account can join! It is time to get back to the time and tested tradition of reputed matchmakers who have been in operation for a long time and know the family members and history of all their suitable hopefuls on their record. Get in touch with them. Every city in India has a few and it is worth your time and efforts to check them out. But then if you are really hell bent on meeting someone through matrimonial sites (we did warn you!), you absolutely must do a thorough background check of the prospective alliance before confirming. Every city has a few reputed private investigation agencies who can do a discreet pre marital check and hand you a positive or negative report based on which you can then take the final call.

Myth No. 3: Matrimonial Sites are only For Those Wanting to Get Married.

Lol. Which world are you living in? The members of matrimonial websites are not just made up of con-artists who are looking to rip you off your hard earned money and reputation. There are also the swingers who are looking for a good time! Dating websites, unlike in the west never really took off in a conservative society like India. So where do libidinous men and women (mostly men though!) go to meet like-minded partners of the opposite sex? Matrimonial websites of course! Where else would you find thousands of pictures and personal information of innocent girls and boys really desperate to get married?! So a lot of men have created profiles just to meet women and have a good time. If you are a woman wanting to get married and raise a family, be very careful about meeting such guys. They will fool you, charm you, rob you of your virginity and then dump you to move on to their next conquest! And then there are of course the women – the smart world-wise girls who realise the power of their beauty and who will entrap innocent young men with their looks and their charms and then give the boys the shock of their lives once they know that they have them by their hearts and their *alls!

Why Customer Service is Just as Important Online?

If you’re making the step to selling goods or services online – or have recently done so – then you might want to consider the subject of customer service. In a physical shop, we’d expect members of staff to treat us kindly, and assist us if we have any issues. When we have a bad experience in a shop, it is likely that our perception of the brand decreases until (or even, if) a positive experience can level it out. Even though you can’t physically interact with a website, the customer service experience is just as important as it would be in a shop.

Potential customers have come to your website because they are looking for something in particular. Running e-commerce websites can be especially difficult to live up to in terms of customer satisfaction, especially if you have a lot of category and product pages. But when you put in the effort to provide the best experience, you may well see your brand value being increased in the eyes of your customers. Here are a few tips to help you to do this, or even just to get you thinking about it…

Make sure to include a phone number on your website

If you don’t have a phone number on your website, people may lose trust in you as a company. As the internet is effectively faceless, a phone number can go some way to helping your customers to feel confident that they can contact you if they require. The best place for a phone number is often in the top right hand corner of your website as this is a common place that customers would look. If you can’t put it here, make sure to have a visible contact us page.

Would live chat help?

Another way customers could speak to you online is via live chat. Obviously this requires an amount of resource, so you might only choose to do this between certain hours – just make sure these are published for people to read.

Are you easily accessible by twitter?

If live chat is simply too demanding, try twitter instead. This will allow you a slightly longer response time than live chat, although you should still reply with haste if your customers are sending messages that aren’t full of joy. If you aren’t already on twitter, now is the best time to get involved with social media as it helps you to stay connected.

Be confident in your delivery courier

It’s a common complaint from customers that their delivery is taking longer than expected. Be confident in your courier so you know that they are getting the majority of parcels delivered on time and to the right place. If there are known issues in the network because of seasonality or extreme weather, make sure to update your website with this information so your customers aren’t left wondering what’s going on.

Tips for Making Ice Cream Recipes

All ice cream recipes start with a base and once you learn how to make basic ice cream, you can experiment with different flavors and gourmet recipes. The most basic ingredients for ice cream include whole milk, heavy cream, egg yolks, sugar and a pinch of salt. In general, you need about a quarter cup of sugar and two egg yolks for every cup of dairy. You also need an ice cream maker and a heat-proof spatula to make your own ice cream at home.


Ice Cream Base

The ratio of milk and heavy cream can be altered depending on how thick or light you want the ice cream to be. You can also make lighter ice cream recipes using less sugar or other substitutes. Milk or cream can be substituted with other forms of dairy such as coconut milk, sour cream, cream cheese, or yogurt in gourmet recipes. The ingredients are combined and heated together and processed in the ice cream maker, which will do the mixing for about 25 to 30 minutes. The resulting ice cream mixture is transferred in a container and placed in the freezer until it becomes firm or can be eaten immediately if you prefer a soft texture.


Adding Flavors and Textures

Vanilla and chocolate are the two most common ice cream flavors that you can add to the base to make flavored ice cream. There are two techniques for adding flavor to the base: steeping and mixing.



Because milk contains both fat and water, it can extract flavor from any herb, spice, nut, or fruit. While the milk is warm, you can throw in vanilla beans to make vanilla ice cream or cinnamon sticks to make cinnamon ice cream. You can also add mint leaves, green tea, coffee, or toasted walnuts. The steeping time will depend on the ingredient from a few minutes for herbs and coffee (just like brewing a cup) or up to thirty minutes for toasted nuts or vanilla beans.

• Other fresh herbs you can use for steeping in the milk and flavoring ice cream are basil, thyme, and tarragon.

• Some examples of spices are cardamom, nutmeg, black pepper, cloves, allspice, and mace.

• For extracting the flavors of nuts such as pistachios or almonds, toast and chop the nuts before steeping in the milk. You can also follow it up with nut oil or mix in some chopped nuts later.

• Any kind of tea that you drink with milk can make a delicious flavoring for ice cream including peppermint, chamomile, black tea, and verbena.

• Other possible options for steeping in the warm milk are liquors like whisky, brandy or rum.



The mix-in is added to the ice cream after it comes out of the freezing machine and the ice cream is still soft and malleable. Chocolate sauce, peanut butter, fruit jams or preserves, nuts, and fruits can be folded into the ice cream for texture, flavor, and presentation. Be aware that fresh fruits can turn into ice chunks when frozen and will affect the soft texture of the ice cream. Other ingredients that can be mixed in with the ice cream are peanut butter, chopped candies, chocolate chunks, marshmallow bits, caramel sauce, fruit sauce, toasted coconut, pretzels, and crumbled cookies.



How Much Does Pet Insurance Cost?

Many pet owners are unaware of the cost of veterinary services until their pets become ill or injured. It can cost up to thousands of dollars to treat conditions such as hip dysplasia, broken bones, torn ligaments, heart disease and cancer. One thing you can do to keep your pet healthy without having to worry about the cost of vet care is to get pet insurance.

An Overview of Pet Insurance

Pet insurance is a type of insurance coverage that provides protection for pets and their owners. It is mainly a form of medical insurance that covers vet bills that result from certain medical situations. Depending on the type of pet insurance plan you choose, such situations may include illnesses, accidents, vaccinations, spaying and neutering, disease prevention, dental care or others. It is also possible to purchase a pet insurance policy that covers liability losses that occur due to injury, death or damage that is caused by your pet. This type of coverage enables you to claim reimbursement for the compensation that you need to pay to the victim of the accident. Click here for more information about pet insurance.

How Much Does Pet Insurance Cost?

In order to get pet insurance coverage, you have to pay a certain amount of money to your insurer every month for a certain period of time. Pet insurance providers take a few things into consideration when they are calculating pet insurance cost, and these include the type of policy, coverage limits, the age and breed of the pet, and the place where the pet is located. If you want to get adequate coverage for all kinds of veterinary expenses, you need to buy a full medical coverage plan, which can cost up to $100 a month. On the other hand, if you are on a tight budget, you can opt for the basic plan, which usually costs $10 to $20 a month.

How to Get the Best Pet Insurance Deal?

It is important that you know exactly which types of coverage you need before you purchase a pet insurance policy. If you get coverage for veterinary expenses or losses that are very unlikely to occur, you may end up paying an unnecessarily high premium. For instance, if your pet is young and healthy, it is not really necessary for you to get coverage for illnesses, because it will probably only need treatment if it is injured in an accident. In this case, you can save a substantial amount of money by purchasing accident-only coverage, which can cost as little as $10 a month. Also, it is advisable that you do some research before you buy pet insurance. Compare policies and prices that are offered by a few reputable insurers to find out which one offers the best value for money. Click here to learn more about getting the best pet insurance deal.

If your pet is healthy and safe, it can be a wonderful companion and activity partner for many years. As such, it is essential that you provide the best medical care and protection for your animal friend.

Jump Into Spring With These Flea Prevention Tips

Punxsutawney Phil may have seen his shadow and declared another six long weeks of winter, but that doesn’t mean it’s too early to think about springtime flea prevention for your dog or cat. It may come as a surprise, but fleas are active year-round, which means those pests that survive the winter are just as ready for the spring as your four-legged friend.

Before your dog or cat stands at the door, ready to get back to enjoying the warm air and fresh grass of the outside world, there are a few steps you need to take to ensure that your pet is safe from those bloodsucking pests. 

Examine your pet
It is not uncommon for dogs or cats to pick up fleas during the winter, so you should inspect your furry friend for any signs of fleas or their eggs. Use a fine-toothed flea comb to check your pet for flea droppings, which are small black or dark brown specks that generally clump together at the base of your pet’s fur, or tiny white dots. If your pet has this residue clinging to his coat, then he has been infested with fleas and will need treatment before venturing outside. Fortunately, there are a few ways to instantly eliminate fleas. Your pet’s health care provider can prescribe a pill that will kill all the adult fleas present on your pet within 24 hours. In addition to medication, a bath using special flea shampoo can clean your dog or cat of any flea eggs or larvae. 

Consider your pet’s lifestyle
There are so many flea-repelling products on the market that choosing just one can overwhelm pet owners. To get a better idea of what type of
flea prevention care your furry friend needs, you need to take into account his outdoor surroundings and activities. For example: Does your dog like to explore wooden areas? Does your cat have a habit of climbing trees? Are there streams and other sources of water nearby? Do you and your pet live by the beach? All of these factors can increase your four-legged friend’s likelihood of contracting fleas, so you’ll need to answer these questions to better determine which flea prevention treatment is right for your pet. 

Weigh the options
Once you’ve considered your pet’s lifestyle, it’s time to choose the best flea treatment for your furry friend. Most pet owners narrow the options down to the flea collar versus flea drops. Flea collars are worn around the neck and work in two ways: some emit a gas that repels fleas, while others release medication that’s absorbed into your dog’s or cat’s subcutaneous fat layer. Once absorbed, it repels and eliminates adult fleas and larvae from infesting your animal’s coat. Flea collars can typically work for several months, with some newer designs lasting for up to eight months, making it a great option for pets that are always on the go or living in high-risk areas. Meanwhile, flea drops are a topical treatment that is applied between the shoulder blades of your dog or cat. These treatments attack fleas and their eggs, immobilizing and eventually eliminating them. However, flea drops only last for one month, so they require diligence and consistency from pet owners. 

Don’t forget the indoors
Flea prevention isn’t just for the outdoors. Fleas can hide in the nooks and crannies of your home, while flea eggs can lie dormant in your carpets or upholstered furniture for months on end. To ensure that your four-legged friend is
safe from fleas, vacuum your home at least once a week, including your furniture, tough-to-reach corners and any bedding your pet touches. Studies have shown that vacuuming eliminates 96 percent of adult fleas and nearly 100 percent of young fleas.
