How I feel in a word: YASSSS
When large-scale influencers take a stand to highlight important topics such as sustainability, it goes a long way. The impact that this type of focus can generate is incalculable. It’s no secret that the fashion industry by design tends to be wasteful, however, taking steps to recognize that it is an issue and changing the systematic way of thinking from the inside out is the way the fashion industry will remain a force for good. I applaud the leadership of Marie Claire for bringing this important cause to their readership!

NRDC creates solutions for lasting environmental change, protecting natural resources in the United States and across the globe. Its Clean By Design initiative works with major apparel retailers and brands to use their buying power as leverage to clean up the factories in their supply chains. Experts study textile mills abroad and identify simple ways to reduce pollution and cut water, chemical, and energy use while saving money.”
