Consumers spend approximately $93 billion on denim products every year. This consumption comes at a great cost, with thousands of litres of fresh water, hazardous chemicals and energy contributing to just one pair of jeans, leaving the environment and the industry vulnerable to pollution and climate change. Using facts, figures, case studies and anecdotes, this book investigates why the industry has been so slow to adopt green technologies and offers practical solutions to designers and fashion executives who want to switch to cleaner manufacturing, including those working in the ‘fast fashion’ sector. It also offers advice to the eco-conscious consumer who wants to purchase denim more sustainably. Considering the full lifecycle of a pair of jeans from the cotton crop to disposal, it presents examples of how to go green at different stages. This book will be of great interest to fashion students and researchers, as well as designers, fashion executives, policy-makers and anyone who comes into contact with the world of denim.

The Demo Docs System of instruction replicates the classroom experience by providing more "I get it" moments outside of class.We've talked to tons of POA instructors and our editors have even taken the accounting course (numerous times!) to figure out the following issue in this course that is consistent: & Students understand (or "get it") right after you do a problem in class, but as soon as they leave class, with each passing hour, their ability to do the problems again and complete their homework diminishes to the point of them either having to come to office hours to get help, or they just quit and get behind in the course.& On top of this, you can end up getting behind in the course as well, in order to keep everyone on track.& The Demo Docs system helps to recreate the "I get it" moments outside of class-keeping both you and the students on track.

The Time of the Clockmaker, the sequel to The Seventh Miss Hatfield, is set in the lush court of Henry VIII and continues Rebecca's romantic and action-packed time-traveling adventures. With an epic romance that cannot be stopped by the bounds of time as well as deeper questions regarding immortality, this is perfect for fans of love stories such as The Time Traveler's Wife, as well as historical fiction with a fantastical twist, like Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers. Cynthia, who is now known only as the seventh Rebecca Hatfield, has settled in to the regular routine of traveling with the sixth Miss Hatfield. But when Rebecca's mentor is shockingly killed in front of her, Rebecca must flee the place and time she knows. She has lost her family, her dearest love, and her ability to live a normal life. All she has left is the gift—or curse—of immortality, and the bizarre clock that allows her to travel in time. Just when Rebecca thinks she might be safe, she is attacked too. The mysterious black-clad figure steals the clock, but not before it transports them to a new time: Tudor England. Without her clock, Rebecca is stranded in the past. Alone, without friends or resources, she must find a way to survive in the beautiful—but dangerous—court of Henry VIII. And what of her love, Henley, a boy Rebecca met in another time and place, but whose ghostly figure follows Rebecca wherever she goes, even when she begins a whirlwind romance with a dashing apprentice to the king's alchemist? The mysterious attacker—someone who seems to possess the same powers as Rebecca—could be anyone at the lavish court. Can Rebecca escape him and find a way home? Would that mean once again sacrificing her heart for the sake of keeping the secret of immortality safe? Epic Reads Impulse is a digital imprint with new releases each month.
