Brain Pickings Weekly Email Newsletter

I decluttered my email subscriptions recently but there a few remaining emails I look forward to each week and Brain Pickings is one of them.

Brain Pickings is the brainchild of Maria Popova, a self-described ‘reader, writer, interestingness hunter-gatherer, and curious mind at large’. She puts a subjective lens on what matters in the world and why, inquiring into how to live and what it means to lead a good life.

A good place to start to get a feel for her work is at the seven things she’s learned in seven years of reading, writing, and living. If you like it, sign up for her weekly newsletter which offers the week’s most unmissable articles across creativity, psychology, art, science, design, philosophy, and other facets of our search for meaning.

Emma Watson’s Met Gala Dress

Emma Watson using her powers for extreme goodness. Her dress was a collaboration with Calvin Klein and Eco Age and is made from recyclable materials. “The body of the gown is crafted from three different fabrics, all woven from yarns made from recycled plastic bottles (!). Plastic is one of the biggest pollutants on the planet. Being able to repurpose this waste and incorporate it into my gown for the ‪#‎MetGala‬ proves the power that creativity, technology and fashion can have by working together.” Love this. Read more about who was involved in the Green Carpet Challenge this year here.
