Financial Perks
Let’s get real here – as a general rule of thumb, shopping isn’t wallet-friendly. But swapping is! Transform an entire wardrobe for the mere price of admission.

Benefits to the environment
A clothing swap lets you refresh your wardrobe, but it also helps reduce your carbon footprint. Instead of your clothes becoming waste, those items are redirected away from landfills and given a second chance. The less stuff going into landfills, the better.

Benefits to the community
All clothing left over from the swap will be donated to support those in need. Exchanging clothing isn’t the only thing that is exchanged at a swap. Swapping4 Cause Team believes in supporting the local community. We collaborate with the local businesses and entrepreneurs, creating partnerships and bringing great people together at our events. This stimulates growth, creativity and spirit. Laughter and smiles are often a pleasant side effect.

Cause and Effect

...Cause and Effect of Out Sourcing Auto Parts Jim Banta Strayer University English 115 Professor Daniel Burrello November 25, 2012 An increase in foreign auto parts supplier has cause grave concerns amongst some American suppliers the protectionists have set their sights on eliminating these new competitors: The foreign manufacturers, especially Japanese auto parts makers that have built plants and limited distribution in the United States and according to some are having an adverse effect on the U.S. economy. A small but politically vocal coalition of American auto parts manufacturers and their unions is complaining that the Japanese auto parts suppliers located in the United States do not supply the quality of parts for their cars. By purchasing auto parts from Japanese suppliers located in Japan and in the United States, automakers are accused of nothing less than a conspiracy to "colonize" American industry. The increased competition provided by Japanese auto parts manufacturers provides significant benefits to the auto industry and workers and to consumers. Consequently, any legislative action that restricted such competition would have harmful effects on the economy. As with all protectionist legislation, such actions would provide short-lived benefits to a small segment of the auto parts industry but would be harmful to the industry in the long run by reducing its incentives to produce better products. An estimated 15,000 parts and......

Causes of Wrinkles.

... Indulging your sweet tooth may be rebounding on you not just on the scale, but on your face, too. "Too much sugar in the body causes 'glycation,' which can cause premature aging," says Diana Lorenzo, M.D., of Skinhealth. Glycation is a bonding process between fat, protein and sugar that occurs inside the tissues, where it can cause muscle inflexibility, inflammation and the production of free radicals, a culprit behind aging. You don't have to go give up sugar entirely (yet), but dial down the sugar intake and switch to small pieces of dark chocolate or low-sugar fruits when craving sweets. 2. Are you a side sleeper?  "Sleeping on one's side does not technically cause premature aging, but it can cause wrinkles, which make you look aged," says Lorenzo. Favoring a sleeping position on your side applies pressure on one side of the face, resulting in wrinkles in the nasolabial folds (the area along your nose and lips that forms parentheses when you smile); many dermatologists can take one look at a person's face and guess immediately which side they sleep on based on the lines on their faces. Practice sleeping on your back (putting a pillow underneath your knees helps, since it'll be harder for you to shift on your side). If you sleep with the lights on or with a night light, this may be causing you to unconsciously furrow your brow, which can cause lines along the forehead area; wear a sleep mask to help shut out the light. 3. Are you sleeping enough? Are you......

Stress and Its Causes

...WHAT DO YOU UNDERSTAND BY STRESS? DISCUSS THE CAUSES OF STRESS FROM THE INDIVIDUAL GROUP AND ORGANISATIONAL POINT OF VIEW INTRODUCTION Stress is a universal element experienced by employees (Individuals and groups) around the globe. Stress has become a major problem which has had negative impact on individuals, groups and organizations. Employers today are critically analyzing the stress management issues that contribute to lower job performance of employees originating from dissatisfaction and high labor ultimately affecting organizational goals and objectives. A mainstream group of employees articulated that their organizations did not care for its employees and sometimes employees do not like to work with their organizations indicating high levels of stress among them and majority were between of 26-35yrs. Misfits with organizations, no part in decision making, were reported the main cause of stress as well as well no control over work environment, personality traits, lack of relaxation along with ambiguous rules affect employees performance (Meneze 2005). Better managed employees are more cooperative and serve as assets for an organization and when their stress is ignored by the employer the result are increased absenteeism, cost, low productivity, low motivation and usually legal financial damages (The office of Radiation, Chemical and Biological Safety, 1999) Stress is basically a mental strain from the internal or external stimulus that refrain a......

The Cause

...show them ways they can conserve the ecosystems. Another way to help modify my lifestyle to better impact the environment is to volunteer around town and at local environmental activities. Like river clean ups where I can get not only me but my whole family involved. The most difficult part about the five levels has to be career choices. Because the career I’m choosing is kinesiology which is sports medicine. But I will try my hardest to conserve and better impact the environment along my career path. The three main central valley environmental issues that I find to be really important are air pollution, water pollution, and changes in natural habitat. Air pollution is caused in many ways from cow’s emissions of gas to cars. The main cause for air pollution is human impact. Humans can change the way they impact the air in many steps. One step can be by driving electric cars because they do not put out as many emissions that regular cars do; or by riding a bike or walking to your destination. Factories can also help by creating technology that will put out cleaner and renewable emissions into the earth’s atmosphere. Another central valley environmental issue is water pollution. Water pollution is also caused by human impact. Oil runoff from cars into the drainage system to harmful pesticides that also runoff into rivers and other water ways. Humans can better help water pollution by not using harmful pesticides and by not driving as many vehicles. Another way to help stop......

Effect/Cause

...February 4, 2013 Effect Cause Paper Illiteracy The society, the American economy, many people’s health, and even the justice system are all affected by illiteracy. The lack of the ability to read and write has a huge impact, one way or another, on the everyday life of every person. Twenty percent of the American population is functionally illiterate, which means they cannot read at all or they read below the fourth grade reading level. It is important to make sure as many people as possible are able to read and write to be able to complete all necessary daily activities, both at home and at the work place. A person needs to be able to read and write to fill out job applications, follow rules and directions, and maintain financial records. Some of the common causes of illiteracy are poverty, the lack of literacy within the family, and learning disabilities. Due to poverty some children are needed to work outside of the home, to help compensate the family’s income, instead of being able to go to school to receive the education that is needed. Therefore, poverty leads to the lack of literacy within the family. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, nearly twenty-two percent of all of the adults living in the United States scored below basic skills during an assessment in 2003 (“Illiteracy: The Downfall”). “Sixty years ago, most illiterate adults were people who were uneducated” (Kunerth). Today, learning disabilities are often the cause of......

Causes of Allergies

...Allergies can be triggered by many types of allergens such as pollen, mold, animal dander, and many other types of substances. It affects people with an abnormal response in the immune system and it causes it to react to some usually harmless substances in the environment. An allergic reaction will indicate that a person has been exposed to some type of allergen either by inhaling it, swallowing it, or getting it on their skin. The most common symptoms of an allergy, whether it is inhaled or a skin allergen, are itchy, watery eyes, sneezing, itchy runny nose, rashes, feeling tired or ill, and hives which produce a rash with raised red patches. There are other exposures that create an allergy that include food and insects. Food allergies are capable of causing stomach cramps, vomiting, or diarrhea. While and insect bite from a bee or a different insect, may cause pain, redness, and swelling. Symptoms can vary widely depending on the severity of the allergic reaction. There are mild symptoms that are almost unnoticeable and make someone feel a bit off. The moderate indications can make a person feel sick as if they’ve got the flu or a cold. Then there are the most severe reactions that are very uncomfortable and could become incapacitating which is called anaphylaxis. When the whole body is affected with an anaphylaxis, its reaction will create hives and itching all over the body, not just in the exposed area, wheezing or shortness of breath, hoarseness or tightness......

Root Cause

...Root Cause Analysis Why do we bother (Andersen, 2000) Fool me once, DIRTFT, steady continual improvement Root Cause Analysis (RCA) is the central theme of 6 sigma activities. RCA identifies the real problem so the problem can be solved one time and not repeat for that same cause. That over the long haul your time is spent most efficiently and each problem that occurs will be unique. As you solve the root causes of problems the amount of problems will decrease for any given system and that system will become more efficient and cheaper as RCA is performed Standards mandate it (Persse, 2006) ISO9001 - ISO17025 - CMMI In addition to making good business sense various standards mandate its use. In ISO9001 the sections on corrective and preventative action require an effective solution to problems. RCA is a proven effective method of problem solving. ISO17025 specifically calls for RCA and CMMI also requires an effective problem solving system. What it isn’t (Robitaille, The Corrective action handbook, 2002) It is not containment – like 8D It is not remedial – not a rework RCA does not deal with immediate problem containment as in step D3 of the 8D discipline. Similarly, a rework procedure does not address the root cause. Finding a root cause may take some time and both a containment action and/or a rework must be implemented while the search for the root cause occurs. DO NOT stop when you get a containment action deployed. When it may not work so well (Okes,......

For Cause and Comrades

...Ayomide Sekiteri United States History to 1865 Due: November 19, 2012 For Cause and Comrades A war is a state of open, armed, and often prolonged conflict carried nations, states, or parties. The civil war was not a war between two countries fighting for land or control. The civil was within America, where citizens were dividing in their ideals and motivations. Northern states and the southern states differing ideals lead to fighting which separated them. Every war has its reasons whether it is a good and acceptable reason or a bad reason. People are killed in the heat of battle and the country itself can be damaged because of war; people want a reason for why their fighting. Some wars are inevitable and some are not, it all depends on what they are fighting for. In James M. McPherson’s book “For Cause and Comrades” he discusses the reasons why men fought in the civil war. 1. What are the primary sources used by McPherson to explain the motives of the 3 million soldiers who fought in the Civil war? What are the advantages and drawbacks to this approach? In the book, For Cause & Comrades—Why Men Fought in the Civil war, James M. McPherson uses collected diary entries and letters written by soldiers that were fighting for either the Confederate or Union army as his primary resources for this book. McPherson gives us these primary sources to give us insights into the life of soldiers fighting in the civil war. He explains that the “evidence consists of the personal...

The Four Causes

...Aristotle says, “The substance is a unity of form and matter. Substances undergo two types of changes: accidental and radical.” [2] Since he spoke about changes, there was a clash between Parmenides and Aristotle. The Greek philosopher Parmenides said, “Reality is one and stable,” [3] that means there cannot be any change. In other words, “In reality there is no change at all; all change is mere appearance; because reality is one, which is unchanging.” [4] Because Parmenides believed that there are only two possibilities, they are ‘being’ and ‘non-being’. According to Parmenides if there is something then only something comes out and if there is nothing how can you expect something? The problem was that later he said that from being no being comes because He has no idea of potentiality in being. However, Aristotle says, every being has potentiality therefore there is change in everything. Since Aristotle said about the change, he had to bring out the proper arguments. Therefore, He began to explain by giving theory of four causes and the problem of change. Aristotle begins his arguments by saying that “If something comes to be it must be rooted in something. It cannot be rooted in nothing. But also it cannot be rooted in itself. So it must be rooted in a potentiality that something has for a range of (opposite, contrary) properties.” [5] What he says is true because nothing can come from nothing rather. For example if you have an apple then only you can cut it and......

Causes

...Root Causes of Environmental Issues In view of the root causes of environmental issues established in chapter 3 of Environmental Science I would have to reflect that I agree with the view relating to human kind failing to address the root causes related to the environmental issues that have been occurring for long enough periods of time to cause some tremendous environmental damage. I agree with this view as it is clear to have had a leading hand in contributing to the Earth’s many factors of unsustanabilty and growing destruction of natural resources. If we were to address the root causes there would be a much larger probability of creating meaningful solutions to the root problems giving the earth and it’s inhibiters the chance for a thriving future (Hussey & Thompson, 2000). Without addressing the root causes we are simply creating a type of limited solutions that can be considered to reflected to be a type of band-aid problem solving techniques that do not promote long lasting sustainability; which in the end won’t be enough to save the earth and it’s natural resources and life that inhabits the planet(Hussey & Thompson, 2000). Accordingly, a root cause that I do not agree with reflects in frontierism. Frontierism is a threat to environmental sustainability on many levels, such as the belief that we can and will always take and disrupt the earth’s natural resources because there is a plethora of the resources, this type of thought process makes such resources very......

Hamlet Cause and Effect Essay Act 4 Soliloquy

...Captain of the army, Hamlet makes a speech about how these events have affected how he now perceives this dilemma. Hamlet is affected by the coming war because he realizes that the actions of others are more honourable than his own, and this causes him to change his way of thinking to help the audience to understand his role more clearly. Firstly, after speaking with Fortinbras and the Captain, Hamlet observed that they were going to war for something without worth to them. Hamlet asks about the troops and what they are fighting for, the Captain says: “Truly to speak, and with no addition, We go to gain a little patch of ground That hath in it no profit but the name. To pay five ducats, five, I would not farm it. Nor will it yield to Norway or the Pole A ranker rate, should it be sold in fee” (Shakespeare 4.4.16-21). Winning this war would give them a worthless piece of land, but they are fighting anyways. Hamlet concludes that the troops are fighting for honour. He realizes that the troops do not want to gain anything physical from this war, but also do not want to lose the title of honour. If the troops were not to fight, then they would be called weak and cowards, and a man’s honour in Elizabethan times is worth everything. Another cause that Hamlet understands the troops actions by thinking of their ambition. He says: “Witness this army of such mass and charge Led by a delicate and tender prince, Whose spirit with divine ambition puffed Makes mouths at the invisible......
