Pineapple Clothing- Is This the New Pink?

This week in class we discussed pineapple-fiber clothing, a new material for clothing.  As much as I love pineapple, I cannot imagine wearing it.  It makes me think of Frenchy in Grease at the dance with her yellow bee-hive hair style and her yellow tea-length dress… Not really what I’m in to.  On the other hand, I am a firm believer in reclaimed wood.  If I could take wood slats from every old, broken down barn I see, I would be in Heaven.  There are so many things to do with reclaimed wood: new houses, flooring, furniture, wall decor… I would never be bored again.  What would the world be like if we used reclaimed wood instead of cutting down fresh trees to make wood that we realistically don’t need? Could you imagine all the trees there would be on Earth if we were more sustainable with our trees? There are currently 61 trees to every one person on Earth. I can’t even begin to imagine what 250 trees to every one person would look like. With all the existing paper recycled and new homes built with reclaimed wood, we wouldn’t need to cut trees down for a long time. However, we are what we repeatedly do.
