Have you ever heard about the workers conditions in countries like Bangladesh, Morocco, Turkey or China? We are used to wearing clothes without caring about the origin of them. Many accidents have happened in these factories and many people have even died in these conditions. It is time to stop and think about what is going on around the world. Wearing innovation, sustainability and design all in one is possible.
A new trend: Innovation and sustainability
It seems that during the past years customers’ aim was only getting cheap clothes. Luckily, there are news and lots of documentaries nowadays that show how some times fashion industry works and the miserable conditions workers have in some cases. This could be the a reason why brands have started changing the way they produce and manufacture products lately. The exact reason is not known. Maybe fashion brands are not only changing because of the news and documentaries about the way they produce. They may also be changing because they are noticing the world’s decadence in terms of global warming, loss of biodiversity or pollution.
Other reason, which we think may be one of the strongest ones, is that people are starting to worry more about themselves. A big amount of people is trying to reuse things, to recycle more, to eat healthier and to consume greener products. As days pass by, more people are getting used to these habits. So much so that, this custom has become a new trend between teenagers and young adults. It could only be a trend, but it is definitely working.
Fashion and innovation: All-in-one!
As people is being more conscious about their consumer habits, more organisations and companies have joined this new trend. They are eager to build trust, trying to adapt themselves to become more ethically and environmentally conscious. They have to adapt themselves in order to keep and attract new customers. Due to this, some retail companies have started producing organic lines. But most of the have set aside design and keep a boring classic style in these sustainable lines. Companies don’t worry about making innovative, sustainable and fashionable all-in-one pieces.
Luckily, one of the few brands in the world that cares in a complete way about these three issues is Nike. They have been transforming the world of retail with their innovative proposals. We all know they are leaders producing aesthetic and good quality products, but nowadays they are also investing in innovative resources with low environmental repercussion.
Nikelab by Nike is gaining strength. This new clothing is focused on the high quality of the materials they use, the way every piece is produced (quality craftsmanship) and its design. They have worked with tons of important and well known designers producing high-end fashion foot and sportswear. As we know, Nike is always in constant evolution, so they are releasing new models and upgrading antique ones. They have released amazing retro designs lately.
Nikelab stores are one step forward offering different retail experiences to their customers. But, we definitely recommend you to check out online options on the first place as there are just a few stores in the world where you can buy NikeLab sneakers, shorts, tops, hoodies, shirts, trousers and more.
It is never late to change our habits
It may be a bit late for these changes, but it’s never late to rethink our values and change some of our consumerist traditions. Making conscious decisions, caring about the world, worrying more about the kind of products we buy is something we have to do in order to help the planet and be in peace in a mind and body way.
How to make money online with guest blogging
If you are one of those that want to find ways to make extra income online and also have a blog then this article could be for you. We will talk about guest blogging and how it could potentially be a source of income for yourself.
What is guest blogging?
We must start by saying that guest blogging is a very useful tool for that is trending at the present time, a tool who can enhance one’s reputation. We must look at the issue from two different perspectives:
Firstly, you might be at the beginning with blogging, you have a small audience and would like to expand and reach a higher number of people. In this situation, guest blogging would be useful, since you go and search for other websites that allow guest posting. By publishing one or several guest posts on other websites, you might grow in popularity and eventually grow your audience.

In the first situation, we assume that you are wanting to build a blog in such a way that you will be able to advertise products or services, while also providing valuable information for your audience. If that’s the case, guest blogging (or posting some original materials on other blogs) will help you increase the traffic on your page and it could eventually lead to some of the people buying the products or services that you are advertising.
In the second scenario, by letting other aspiring bloggers post content on your blog, you will generate income by charging them a fee for each material they have posted. Also, you won’t have to dedicate so much time in writing articles.

In this article, we look at why ISO 9001 can be a big boost to any business and best way to ensure continual improvement.
What is ISO 9001?
ISO 9001 is a system that is designed to make business owners and managers feel more in control of their businesses through a series of efficient systems and processes. It is a way to align the objectives of the company and the ideas of the employees in favour of the organization.

It is designed to support your business in ensuring that you meet the needs of your customers, whilst delivering a consistent level of quality and satisfaction. The areas that are covered within ISO 9001 include customer satisfaction, training records for staff, preferred supplier lists, contract reviews, quality objectives, management Review meetings, evidence of Monitoring and Measuring and non-conformance register.
Who is ISO 9001 for?
ISO 9001 is a certification that can be achieved by any business, of any size, in any sector. Traditionally ISO 9001 has been seen as a quality management standard for the manufacturing sector. However, ISO Quality Services Limited have helped implement ISO 9001 into many other sectors including:
- Business services sector, including accountants, solicitors and business consultancies;
- Waste and cleaning companies;
- IT and creative businesses;
- Charities and care homes;
- Construction companies;
- Automotive and transport companies; and
- The hospitality and retail sector.
If you run a business in any of these fields and improvement is high on your agenda for 2018, but you are not sure how to get started, there are consulting companies which offer trainings on the topic such as the Mexican firm SPC Consulting Group.
What are ISO 9001 benefits?
Thanks to the improvement in quality management, the ISO 9001 certification, brings a new image to the market. This shows that the organization cares about the way it is seen by its clients. The certification shows them that quality is what your business aims to, that the company wants to keep improving and that you are open to new opportunities and partnerships.
Of course, the main players in the markets are more receptive to the business that have the certification –in certain industries, it may even prevent those who do not have it from even participating, indeed.

In the short term, obtaining ISO 9001 certification provides improvements in internal business processes by reducing rework and waste and increasing the quality of products. The savings generated can be invested in the development of new products, staff training, structural reforms of the facilities, etc.
In the long term, it is common to check the increase in income of the organization, as customers become loyal and satisfied, which leads to the arrival of new business partners. This is one of the main benefits and advantages of implementing ISO 9001. The organization stops focusing its attention on the product and orientates it towards the client. Therefore, the first step is to know in depth what motivates them, what are their values, their expectations, their lifestyle, their behaviour, their opinions, and so on. With this information, we can understand our customer as a whole and seek their satisfaction, and how to create value for them.
In addition to all of that, there are a number of benefits that the ISO 9001 QMS standard has on offer to an organisation.
