The German monthly newspaper ‘Zeitleo’ now gave some tips as to what to do with damaged or old-fashioned clothes we otherwise would throw away to buy new ones:
>Simply cut off parts of the sleeves, trouser legs or neckline or cut some frays.
>Use some chalk or some color you can wash off easily to write or draw something on your clothes. Then use a needle, a thread and some pearls, sequins or rhinestones to draw the outline of your picture or written word.
>Take an old jumper and cut out forms like stars, moons, flowers, stripes you can sew onto another old jumper you otherwise would have thrown away.
>Print something onto transfer paper and press it against the t-shirt or jumper. The printed side needs to press against the clothes. Now cover the shirt with the transfer paper on top with baking paper. Iron the whole thing for a couple of minutes. The quality won’t be comparable to shirts printed by s’Oliver or Esprit, but it will do.
>Simply use a template and textile painting to paint it.

>‘Frankfurter Allgemeine’ a German newspaper says that today the elections in Bangladesh have begun.
>‘Tagesschau’ says that meanwhile people in Bangladesh get expropriated to build refugee camps where once the houses of these expropriated citizens stood. Some Bangladeshis even had to abandon their work as farmers due to expropriation. They now earn little money by collecting and selling waste. Indeed there now are very little jobs left to do and these expropriated people, people who were unemployed all along and young Rohingya-refugees have to fight to get the few jobs that Bangladesh’s economy has to offer.

The German Catholic radio station ‘Domradio’ claims they got a source according to which nowdays companies sell 60% more clothes than they did in 2008. However the average life expectancy of clothes is only 50% of what it was like in 2008. Each year all around the world 8.4 millions of tons of clothes get thrown away even though most of them could have easily been fixed and some weren’t even damaged.

The German party ‘Partei Mensch Umwelt Tierschutz’ says that while the Bangladeshi clothes-industry already earns this country 28 billions of US-dollars a year exports are to increase by 32 billions of dollars within the next two years according to the Bangladeshi Ministry of Economics. Especially to the EU, their biggest trading partner!

I mean that the charity-organisation paid for and supervised the making of this settlement and the result was a settlement that offered solid housing for these refugees. Thus the UN then decided to give some money to ‘Caritas’ under the condition they’d use this money only for for the construction of another 20.000 houses.
