Weekend Reading: Will France Ban Brands From Throwing Out Unsold Clothes?

Hey readers!

I’m writing to you from Buenos Aires. On Saturday I make the harrowing journey across to hemispheres to Denmark for the Copenhagen Fashion Summit. It’s a grand gathering, and I’m already on a huge Instagram group chat with a bunch of other sustainable fashion enthusiasts about meeting up when we get there, and I feel an epic sustainable shopping trip coming on. After all, I need to switch out my wardrobe from Latin-American-artist-chic to European-minimalist-chic. If you have any tips or recommendations, please comment below!

Meanwhile, my influencer network, Ethical Writers & Creatives, got a lovely writeup in Glamour! And some of my favorite, most hardworking members were included.
