Posted • @natgeo Photo by Luca Locatelli @LucaLocatelliPhoto // Sponsored by @thenorthface // I am currently working on a story for National Geographic magazine about sustainable innovations. I am investigating the fast fashion industry and possible solutions to reverse the damage generated by textile waste. This image is from inside one of the biggest textile recycling facilities in the Netherlands. More than a hundred people separate the textiles and grade them to ensure every piece becomes reusable. Textile waste has a huge impact on our planet. The cotton industry produces 10 percent of global carbon emissions worldwide, and uses about 5 percent of all pesticides and 14 percent of insecticides sold globally. The fast fashion industry needs a new way to create circularity around textile waste and reduce the impact in the coming years. Millennials are the biggest clients in this sector, demanding sustainable, durable, and Earth-friendly products instead of status symbols. Market demands and recycling technologies could be the right combination to push the fast fashion industry to create more sustainable products and reduce the impact on our planet. // The North Face and @rei have teamed up to create the series. In a new episode, sustainability advocate Kaméa Chayne explores fast fashion’s environmental and psychological effects.

A huge ship containers of 337m × 48m is entering the Port of Hamburg. Shipping containers produce more greenhouse gas emissions than some small countries. ... “It has been estimated that just one of these container ships, the length of around six football pitches, can produce the same amount of pollution as 50 million cars. It is estimated that there are 1 billion cars circulating in the world, that means 20 cruise ship of that size pollute the same amount of the whole cars in the world.

My heart and soul in these days goes to all people and friends in the Amazon forest and to our planet. We are in front of the extreme paradox of our society. The Amazon rainforest has been on fire for the past three weeks. Fire is often used to clear out the land for farming or ranching. The majority of the fires can be attributed to humans. Forest fires and climate change operate in a vicious circle, burning trees means to loose the most effective way to capture CO2 from the atmosphere and increase meanwhile greenhouse gas. Instead of being united and preserving and finding solutions to survive on our Planet, we continue to destroy and making huge steps back on fighting climate catastrophe. The Amazon rainforest is the place that inspired me most at the beginning of my career. It’s the place where I feel most how majestic and ancient is mother nature and how is important to fight for it. I’m grateful to people fighting everyday on the ground to preserve this incredible place, so please @evangelista.emanuela continue your fight to preserve it. # @xixuau_amazon_ecolodge

Snowing mountains? No, it’s a Coal storage facility in Hamburg. How we can save the planet and ourselves if we don’t stop burning it? The burning of coal is responsible for 46% of carbon dioxide emissions worldwide and accounts for 72% of total greenhouse gas emissions from the electricity sector. If plans to build up to 1200 new coal fired power stations around the world are realized, the greenhouse gas emissions from these plants would put us on a path towards catastrophic climate change, causing global temperatures to rise by over five degrees Celsius by 2100. This will have dire impacts for all life on earth. I’m editing videos I took from around d the world, and I shoot this video with my phone to my computer screen while listening @pinkfloyd

1.116 km from the North Pole the earth looks like this, drift ice where Polar Bears during summer struggle to live and go hunting. We all need to find a new way to live on our planet, because it’s all real and we’re all struggling to survive on our planet

The Bellsund Fjord in Svalbard, Norway. The polar archipelago of Svalbard was discovered in 1596 and until recent years has been industrialized by mining companies and whaling hunting. Coal mining is still the major economic activity with tourism that has become increasingly important. Polar bears are the main attractions.

Spaghetti cables at @cern antimatter factory. CERN's antimatter factory is the only place in the world where antiatoms are created on a daily basis. According to the theory, matter and antimatter were created in equal amounts at the Big Bang explosion. But none can still find where the antimatter world has gone. There’s so many theories about the antimatter to inspire music and movie productions such as @strangerthingstv But still is the biggest scientist mystery. Follow me to know more about the

Posted @time “It was always rumored that Sagrada Familia had never registered for the proper building permits,” Janet Sanz, ’s deputy mayor for the environment, urban planning and transportation, told @lisaabend. “When I took office, I asked my team to look into it, and we saw that for more than 130 years, they had been building without a license.” That finally changed on June 7. Sanz made a point of requiring the basilica's foundation not only to acquire the proper permits, but also to compensate the city for the effects of a century’s construction. More than two dozen architects are working on the project, and 200 workers in total are involved in construction.

The Sagrada Familia inside I shoot on assignment for @time The entry fees of roughly 4 million visitors to the Sagrada Familia each year help provide the money needed to finish construction

@time The first stone of the Sagrada Familia was laid more than 130 years ago. Thanks to an influx of funding, some striking innovations and a lot of old-fashioned craftsmanship, the famously unfinished church is now on schedule to be completed in 2026, the 100th anniversary of the death of its architect, Antoni Gaudí. Today, more than two dozen architects are working on the project — most of them local Catalans — and 200 workers in total are involved in construction. But making the deadline will mean overcoming technical complications, theological doubts and several blocks’ worth of outraged residents. At a time when Barcelona is grappling with an unprecedented tourist influx that is challenging the idea of what the city should be, the plans for the church risk deepening social and political divisions. And just like the reconstruction of Notre Dame in Paris, the project to finish the Sagrada Familia has triggered impassioned debates over the proper role of iconic historical buildings in a modern city.

Milan, Isola district combining modern development and typical working class courtyard houses. My studio is inside one of those courtyards and when the light is so incredible I need to disappear with my camera and shoot. A series of these pictures were shown during the @worldphotoorg at @somersethouse last month.
