This week I shared my tips with Complex on shopping for fashion – and denim – sustainably and thoughtfully.
And I sat on a roundtable on the BBC World Service and examined why consumers say they want to buy sustainably, but they don’t.
I also talked to Sourcing Journal (I link to them a lot here, so you know I have a lot of R-E-S-P-E-C-T for them) about why millennials aren’t actually buying as much sustainable fashion as they say they want to.
I’m a part of the Impact Travel Alliance, a global community of changemakers who want to make a difference through travel. And they quoted me in their latest publication on “Bringing Sustainable Travel to the Masses.”
And also, a friend posted this on Instagram and I was dying laughing watching it!
