dreaming green

The sustainability conversation is not new, but this year it’s taken on increased urgency. Some of that, no doubt, is due to the pandemic-induced awareness of the world around us, but there’s also a wholesale reevaluation of our practices, on both the personal and business fronts. If you look for it, you’ll find this heightened consciousness everywhere, as more and more industries recognize that green practices are safer for humans and for the planet. Nowhere has this change been more needed than in fashion. It’s no revelation that fashion, particularly the fast variety, is one of the world’s biggest polluters.

Brazilian-American watercolor artist Amanda Costa Marino has expressed herself through art since childhood.

Her work is inspired by causes she’s passionate about and observations of the natural world; her artistic study of Earth and other celestial bodies has fueled her concerns about climate change. “For the last few years, through comparing Venus and Earth, I’ve become more aware of how fast the earth is changing,” Marino says. “The ground we stand on is in need of help. Earth is always speaking, and it speaks in a visual manner. By observing our surroundings, we can learn to listen to it.” In this vein, some of her collections question our…
