Fashion’s huge waste problem – and what we can do about it | RSVP

Sep 29, 2021 01:00 PM in Eastern Time (US & Canada)
The fashion industry is responsible for some 10% of global carbon emissions – far more than air travel. On Wednesday, Sept. 29 we’ll tap Ashoka Fellow Jessica Schreiber, founder of Fabscrap, on how the industry is showing up in the moment and what solutions changemakers and social entrepreneurs are advancing. Jessica and her team work with 525 companies and 6,000 volunteers to shift industry norms and customer mindsets. She reminds us: “There are so many ways to reuse, recycle, redistribute, re-create, and repair items that we shouldn’t ignore or discard anything.”
