A new affordable housing community had its grand opening in Lane County, Monday. The Oaks at 14th will provide housing to an especially underserved population: people with criminal histories who have served their time and want to rejoin society.

The Eco Boutique

Behind the glitz and glitter, high fashion is a dirty business. According to Ecowatch, the clothing industry is the second largest polluter in the world—the first is oil. As KLCC’s Tiffany Eckert reports, a few designers in Eugene are promoting “conscious consumerism” this Saturday with a different kind of fashion show.

The 2ND Annual Eco-Couture “Trashion Show” is designed to shed light on just how much waste we make and toss away. Farale Nelson is with Of the Earth apparel and The Eco Boutique.

Womenspace

In 1977, Womenspace began helping victims throughout Lane County escape domestic violence. Today, the agency serves thousands of survivors and offers prevention services to school kids. In honor of their 40th year, Womenspace invited Tanya Brown to Eugene. She is the youngest sister of the late Nicole Brown Simpson.

“Long Live The Grateful Dead”!  The sentiment is still kept alive by Deadheads through shared music and memories.  As a member of the band’s extended family in the 1980’s and ‘90’s, Susana Millman had an insider’s access to take pictures.  Her recently released book is called “Alive with the Dead or A Fly on the Wall with a Camera”.

There’s a new non-profit in town-- but by design-- it won’t stick around.  Volunteers on Wheels is made up of people who travel from place to place in two brightly painted school buses. They find volunteer projects in every town they visit. As KLCC’s Tiffany Eckert reports, this mobile non-profit has already logged 2,000 collective hours helping out in and around Eugene.
