(3BL Media/Justmeans) - The ‘It bag’ is back according to Vogue. The iconic, classic handbag has never gone out of style. From the Birkin handbag to Hermes bags, women have always lusted about beautiful bags. Yet, while designer bags are thriving, there are many cultures, arts and artisans in the world that are not and are slowly becoming extinct. So, what if bags could change that and become bags of hope, with a sustainable heart?

Sustainably designed handbags have come a long way since their humble beginnings. Wild Tussah was started with one idea in mind: to preserve traditional ...

In 2005 Project Peanut Butter was born in Malawi and Sierra Leone. The Project is a not-for-profit organisation that has...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - This is a news story that probably didn’t make most of the global headlines, but is a story that has consequences for us all: Australia has lost one in ten of its native mammals species over the last 200 years. No other country has had such a high rate and number of mammal extinctions over this period. This number reported for Australia is substantially higher than previous estimates. A further 56 Australian land mammals are now threatened, indicating that this extremely high rate of biodiversity loss is likely to continue unless big changes are made.

The extent of the problem has been largely...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Female genital mutilation (FGM) is a crime: it is child abuse. It devastates the lives of women and girls. February 6th marked the United Nation’s yearly campaign, ‘International Day of Zero Tolerance to FGM,’ which raises awareness and educates people about the dangers of this issue. Disturbingly, about 120 to 140 million women have been subject to this practice and three million girls are at risk each year, according to the World Health Organisation. FGM relates to all procedures that involve partial or total removal of the external female genitalia...

Rape and sexual violence are used as tactics of war in conflicts across the world. Sadly, sexual violence is often used for political ends, as a means of ethnic cleansing and to terrorise local communities. It’s a devastating act that destroys lives, fuels further conflict, creates refugees, jeopardises ceasefires and undermines long-term prospects for reconciliation. Sexual violence affects men, women and children. All too often, the victims face a life of shame and stigma while the perpetrators go free. Only a handful of people responsible for these crimes have ever been brought to trial. As a...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Ranking 99 out of 103 on the United Nations Development Programme, Human Poverty Index, Ethiopia is one of Africa’s poorest states, with 45 percent of its 77 million people living below the poverty line. Sadly, three-quarters of the population lack access to clean water; four persons out of five live without proper sanitation. In addition, Ethiopia hosts some 133,000 refugees from neighbouring countries. In the last two decades, major crises combining droughts,...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Chilling statistics were released last week by Cancer Research UK (CRUK), saying one in two people in Britain will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime and that more effort must be made to prevent people getting the disease. Until now, CRUK’s scientists have estimated that one in three people would get cancer at some point; these new figures are from a paper published in the British Journal of ...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Malaria is a mosquito-borne disease caused by a parasite. The 2013 World Health Organisation Malaria Report estimates that nearly 630,000 people die of malaria annually. However, because of an expanded global effort to combat the disease, tremendous progress has been made, with a 54 percent decrease in the rate of child malaria deaths since 2000 in Africa, where 90 percent of malaria deaths occur. Yet, in spite of progress, malaria still kills a child every minute!

In Kenya over the last ten years, while a breakthrough has made in malaria control...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - The Economist has named a female editor for the first time in its 172-year history: Zanny Minton Beddoes takes over as the 17th editor of the venerable weekly title. Also, last week, the Editorial Director at Justmeans coincidentally picked up on the very timely story featured in the New York Times, ‘Helena Morrissey, Aiming at Britain’s Glass Ceilings, Gets Results,’ which highlights that since 2010, the percentage of women on Britain’s top boards has nearly doubled, to...
