“Fast furniture” is clogging up landfills, Leo likes vegan shoes, and fashion is a bummer at COP27
November 10, 2022 · 45 min
It’s COP27 week, so we look at how well the fashion industry is doing keeping its promise to dramatically reduce emissions. A recent report from Stand.earth gives most major brands a failing grade and shows how much work they still have to do to clean up their supply chains. We also look at how some luxury brands are embracing the digital ID as a way to show where their materials are sourced and improve resale value.  Then, we take a walk outside the world of fashion and find the scourge of disposability has come for furniture. We have lots to say about that, particularly the parallels with fast fashion. Finally, vegan shoe startup Loci has raised money, and Leonardo DiCaprio is on the cap table. We have some thoughts on vegan leather we’d love to share with him. Have a question for Christina, Rachel and Shilla? Give us a call at (508) 622-5361.‬ We might feature your voicemail in an upcoming episode.
