Apparel Makers in Bangladesh Threaten Shut Down 
Bangladesh's apparel manufacturers and exporters have threatened shutting down their factories unless the government reviews the recommendation of fixing minimum monthly wage at Tk5,300 within next 15 days.
Their warning came a day after a government-formed wage board proposed the amount, up from existing Tk3,000 per month.
“This is a suicidal proposal, which is void of reality, unacceptable and irrational,” Atiqul Islam, president of Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA), told a press conference in Dhaka.
Rejecting the proposal outright, he said: “the industry would lose competiveness if the proposal is implemented and we are not ready to pay anything over Tk4,250.”
The amount was proposed by the factory owners earlier. The workers have been asking for a Tk8,100 monthly wage.
Before the press conference, BGMEA had a meeting with Bangladesh Knitwear Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BKMEA) as they decided to appeal to the wage board for reviewing the recommendation.
“We will appeal against the proposal on Wednesday and we will request for accepting the wage structure proposed by us,” said Atiq. 
He said the garment makers would meet Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and seek an exit policy from the government if their recommended salary of Tk4,250 is not finalized.
He said the garment sector will lose 37% competitiveness if the board recommended salary is implemented as the cost of production increased by 13% over the last few years.
Pointing out different problems currently being faced by the RMG makers compared to competitors China and Vietnam, he said the business environment what China and Vietnam have is not in Bangladesh.
“The cost of doing business here is higher than the two countries. For example, they get undisrupted electricity supply but we do not,” he said.
The leaders of RMG makers demanded reducing bank interest rate to a reasonable level, taking steps to cut prices of gas and electricity in industrial zone, reinstating of bargaining rules for apparel makers with insurance companies and prevention of taking additional charges by the inland container depot from the exporters.

Court Ruling Should   
 Limit Nanosilver in
          Textiles
In a decision handed down, the court ruling said the EPA had improperly approved the use of nanosilver by one U.S. textile manufacturer. The court vacated the approval and sent it back to the agency for reevaluation. The lawsuit has been closely watched as a test case for the growing use of nanotechnology in consumer products.
“The court’s ruling puts us a step closer toward removing nanosilver from textiles,” said Mae Wu, an attorney in NRDC’s Health Program. “EPA shouldn’t have approved nanosilver in the first place. This is just one of a long line of decisions by the agency treating people and our environment as guinea pigs and laboratories for these untested pesticides.”
NRDC sued the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in early 2012 to limit the use of nanosilver out of a concern for public health. Today the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals agreed with a key point NRDC raised: that the EPA didn’t follow its own rules for determining whether the pesticide’s use in products would be safe.
Beginning in December 2011, EPA approved the company HeiQ Materials to sell nanosilver used in fabrics for the next four years and required the company to provide data on toxicity for human health and aquatic organisms. In early 2012, NRDC filed a lawsuit against EPA seeking to block nanosilver’s use, contending, among several points, that the agency had ignored its own rules for determining the safety of nanosilver.
The key part of today’s Ninth Circuit ruling addressed EPA’s determination that there is no risk concern for toddlers exposed to nanosilver-treated textiles. The agency’s rules state that if there’s an aggregate exposure to the skin or through ingestion at or below a specific level, there is a risk of health concerns. But the Ninth Circuit found that the EPA had data showing that nanosilver was right at the level that should have triggered a finding of potential risk, but approved the pesticide anyway. That led to the Ninth Circuit vacating EPA’s approval and sending it back down to the agency for reevaluation.
Silver, a well-recognized antimicrobial, is highly toxic and kills both harmful and beneficial bacteria. Nanosilver is engineered from silver and marketed as an even stronger antimicrobial than silver. Its use in fabrics, food storage containers, hair dryers and other products continues to grow, despite potential dangerous health effects.

Responsible Cotton
Cotton Australia and Cotton Incorporated have launched the new ‘Cotton Leads’ program, which aims to highlight the responsible and transparent way that cotton is grown in Australia and the United States. The new initiative includes conventional and organic upland and pima cotton grown in Australia and the United States, which together account for around 17% of global cotton production. The two partners emphasize the new program will complement, rather than compete with, existing cotton sustainability certification programs.

      HONEY’S PLACE Participates in the Annual Walk for Hope 
HONEY’S PLACE raised and donated $14,000 in their first participation in Walk for Hope at City of Hope in Duarte, CA on Sunday, November 3, 2013. The Walk for Hope is a movement dedicated in uniting the survivors and supporters of women’s cancers. This annual event continues to raise necessary funds to aid research, treatment, and education. 

Through CalExotics’ team captain, Vice Present Jackie White, our company was informed about the Walk for Hope annual event. Our team captain, Director of Operations Dustin Olive, eagerly and successfully coordinated all efforts of assembling and fundraising. 
According to Bonnie Feingold, CEO and President of HONEY’S PLACE, “We at HONEY’S PLACE joined and wanted to make a difference in the fight against women’s cancers since more than 315,000 women will be diagnosed with breast or gynecological cancer just this year. We wanted to do our part to help more women to live longer, healthier lives. Especially since our founder, Helene "Honey" Kusens, lost her battle with breast cancer in 2002 which touches us personally.” 
“We want to thank our team, donators, and supporters in this very momentous event. Walk for Hope was a gathering where walkers were able to support each other while walking either the 2K or 5K. We definitely want to support the cause and found it moving.” as said by Dustin Olive.
