Buying Clothing With an Eco-Consciousness
“85% of disposable apparel ends up in a landfill,” Annie Gullingsrud, Cradle to Cradle Innovation Institute
Think of all the stuff that you’re buying for back-to-school this time of year…or new fashions for the fall season…
What if you bought even 10 percent of it with sustainable clothing? Is it even possible? How?
Listen to host Joan Michelson’s intriguing interview with the Director of Textiles and Apparel at the Cradle to Cradle Innovation Institute, Annie Gullingsrud, to find out how. This aired originally just after the hurricane in Houston, so you’ll hear them mention that. (This was recorded under our previous name, Green Connections Radio.)
- What the circular economy is.
- What to look for when buying clothes.
- What certifications mean.
- How communities can get more clean drinking water from a clothing manufacturing plant.
- And more….You’ll want to take notes to help you decide what to buy.
You’ll also want to listen to:
- Eileen Mockus CEO of Coyuchi, eco-bedding and linens company.
- Jessica Schreiber, CEO of Fabscrap, on how fabric “scraps” can be used.
- Laura Jones, Editor of FrontLash, a new magazine about sustainable fashion.
- Amina Razvi, VP of the Sustainable Apparel Coalition on how fabrics are made, recycled and reused.
