Sustainability & Business:

Unlearning 1. We cannot leave sustainability actions to just charities, governments and non-profits alone. Corporations have the ability to harness the power of business, to use growth and profits more consciously.

Circular Fashion:

Learning 2. Waste is only waste, if you treat it as such.

Unlearning 3. Charity shops are not sustainable as we may think they are.

Learning 4. Baby-wear & maternity-wear are one of the quickest product categories that can generate most waste, as life span of product tends to be short.

Learning 5. The science and different properties between chemical and natural dyes.

Consumer behaviour:

Learning 6. Studies have shown that men and women care about sustainability in roughly equal numbers. Some also wear sustainable brands to "eco-impress."

Unlearning 7. It is most likely the items I want right now, I do not need. Ask "why" before you buy.

Conscious Living:

Learning 8. There are simple swaps that can be incorporated to lead a more conscious way of living.

Learning 9. There are many intersections within the sustainability space. But to avoid information overload, focus on some key areas of interest, then find the interweaving links thereafter.

Brand Transparency:

Learning 10. Sustainable brands build trust through transparency.

It would mean the world, if you could help me make the show become more discoverable for others, by leaving a 5-Star review on Apple podcasts, or sharing the show on your social media platforms, so we can all continue to keep the conversation going. Please do leave your social media handle on the review/ tag me as I'd love to connect and thank you all personally!
