WASHINGTON—Taking into account investments by government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and private industry, a report released Friday by the Pew Research Center revealed that a total of $ 50 billion is spent annually in the U.S. to get kids excited about things. “Each day in this country, well over $ 100 million is spent on efforts to take something, such as reading, science, going outdoors, or breakfast, and get kids excited about it,” said lead researcher Michael Hazlett, adding that in 2014 alone, over $ 10 billion was spent on getting kids excited about fruit. “In addition to the $ 50 billion that goes toward getting kids excited about fitness or dental hygiene or any number of other things, we found that an even larger sum of $ 65 billion is then spent each year on making those things fun.” The report concluded that at any given moment, an average of 0.3 percent …

Online music streaming service Spotify's revenues leapt 45 percent to top 1 billion euros ($ 1.1 billion) last year, though its operating loss widened due to product development and expansion costs, its holding company said. The company, founded in 2006 by Daniel Ek and Martin Lorentzon, was reportedly valued at about $ 8 billion in a recent fundraising. It said the increased loss was due to substantial investments in product development and international expansion, as well as an increase in staffing.
Levi’s has announced it’s saved 1 billion liters of water in its manufacturing process. That’s enough to fill 400 Olympic-size pools. That’s enough to make a huge water-footprint dent. That’s enough to provide H20 for days for all of its high-waisted-wearing hipster clientele in New York.
Paul Dillinger, Levi’s vice president of Global Product Innovation, said at a panel Tuesday at South by Southwest that the company has tracked results since 2011 when it began using less water in its finishing process. The reduction efforts include eliminating water during stone washes and combining multiple wet cycles.
During the panel, which was moderated by HuffPost Impact, Dillinger also called on consumers to wash their jeans less frequently.
Levi’s new study, The Life Cycle of a Jean, found that 3,800 liters of water are used during the lifetime of a pair of jeans — from the creation of your favorite 501s to that weathered holes-in-the-knees moment when you lay them to rest.
The study found that consumer washing accounts for 23 percent of water usage on average.
With the release of its water-saving results, the company is imploring others to join their efforts. Charles V. Bergh, the self proclaimed Levi’s “CEO with dirty jeans” wrote for Fortune:
“Even with the best intentions, companies today can only help solve some of the environmental and social issues that impact our world. In order to really make a difference, we must also encourage our global supply chain partners and consumers to prioritize these issues.
Multiplying such efforts would be significant — and those opportunities aren’t pipe dreams. It would, however, require CEOs of major companies in the U.S. and across the world to use their voice and actions to address the debate about water consumption, climate change and the overall state of our planet.”
Dillinger also reminded consumers that the concept of sustainability applies to an entire life cycle of a jean.
“Most likely you’re tired of that garment before that garment is tired of you,” he said on the panel. “Donate to Goodwill to give it a new life.”
Levi’s is asking individual consumers to do their part and find out how much water they use and could save by washing their jeans less frequently. Check it out here.
