Green Purchasing Intentions Against Natural Color Batik In Indonesia

Environmental damage and economic development are often endless dilemmas. The government, businessmen, and the community together strive to address these issues in an integrated manner. Among the policies and breakthroughs in handling environmental damage is to reduce industrial waste. The batik industry as an icon of Pekalongan City has creatively made a breakthrough by producing batik with a natural color. This innovation not only has an impact on environmental conservation but also improves marketing strategies that are more humanist and sustainable.

Religion here has an important role, as a source of values that help determine people’s consumption behavior, especially in the field of fashion. Creativity in environmentally friendly batik products that are integrated with religion, brands, products, prices has significantly affected consumer intentions. This green product activity will greatly help the development of the green economy in Indonesia. The contribution of the green economy helps people to live with a sustainable environment while still getting financial improvements from the industrial sector itself.

Colors Of Nature

Colors Of Nature

“An anthology of nature writing by people of color, providing deeply personal connections to—or disconnects from—nature.” —NPR From African American to Asian American, indigenous to immigrant, “multiracial” to “mixed-blood,” the diversity of cultures in this world is matched only by the diversity of stories explaining our cultural origins: stories of creation and destruction, displacement and heartbreak, hope and mystery. With writing from Jamaica Kincaid on the fallacies of national myths, Yusef Komunyakaa connecting the toxic legacy of his hometown, Bogalusa, LA, to a blind faith in capitalism, and bell hooks relating the quashing of multiculturalism to the destruction of nature that is considered “unpredictable”—among more than thirty-five other examinations of the relationship between culture and nature—this collection points toward the trouble of ignoring our cultural heritage, but also reveals how opening our eyes and our minds might provide a more livable future. Contributors: Elmaz Abinader, Faith Adiele, Francisco X. Alarcón, Fred Arroyo, Kimberly Blaeser, Joseph Bruchac, Robert D. Bullard, Debra Kang Dean, Camille Dungy, Nikky Finney, Ray Gonzalez, Kimiko Hahn, bell hooks, Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston, Pualani Kanaka’ole Kanahele, Robin Wall Kimmerer, Jamaica Kincaid, Yusef Komunyakaa, J.
