The Guardian has written about Cameron Saul, a social entrepreneur operating in the world of high fashion. His father is the founder of the brand Mulberry and Saul has co-founded the handbag brand Bottletop, an unusual product combined with an ethical backstory. Read the full story here:
Crespi points out that as much as 50% of negative environmental impact from the fashion industry comes after purchase. “Washing garments at high temperatures, or dry cleaning them, and then throwing them in the bin when you’re done, can be really harmful to the environment. I like to educate my clients on how they can purchase, care and wear more sustainably.”
This is something I have spoken about in this blog as well. The money you spend on the garment you wear once is only one concern, the rest comes in the form of the environmental price you pay for ‘fast’ fashion.
