The battle of Amazon started in the 70s
I was a ten-year-old boy in 1975.
Sustainable design or Eco fashion has its root back in 70′s. People woke up and started to realize the huge environmental problem. The green movement Earth Day and Green peace founded in the 70′s and they started to dig deep about large companies and countries exploitation of common global resources. From 1978 – 2008 large eras of the most valuable land on Earth, The Amazon has disappeared. Without Amazon, we would not be able to find a cure for diseases. It protects the ozone layer and preserves the fragile Eco system on Earth. This Eco system with thousands of different species is a common global resource for mankind, so why do we still kill The Amazon?
