Shwop ‘til you drop
Every five minutes 10,000 pieces of clothing are thrown away. In an effort to decrease waste and recycle clothing, Marks & Spencer’s launched their Shwopping campaign.
Shwopping involves taking items of clothes you don't need or want anymore to a drop box. The store is partnering with Oxfam and raising money to help people around the world overcome poverty.
Why it matters
How could your brand contribute to leading a more sustainable lifestyle by diminishing our collective carbon footprint?
Two new apps recently debuted that allow people to connect with friends – sitting on their couch or out and about. For those who prefer to spend the night at home, Miso is the perfect couch potato companion. TV fans can ‘check in’ to the shows or movies they’re watching and chat about them with friends all while earning badges a la Foursquare. On the other hand, the movers and shakers out there have Hot Potato to meet and greet with friends at live events. People add live events to their schedule and then share videos, pictures and their experiences at each event with their network.
Social networking is being joined by virtual reality characters. Computer games like World of Warcraft now allow your virtual avatar to connect with other avatars from other games via social networks with the potential to connect with people in the future.
