Show Notes

It’s no secret how wasteful and polluting the fashion industry is. As a true child of the Sixties, and early-adopter vegetarian parents, Stella McCartney was being introduced to sustainability long before it took root in our collective consciousness. So, when she hired the first ever Worldwide Sustainability and Innovation Director at her eponymous brand, she looked to Claire Bergkamp. 

Now the Chief Operating Officer at Textile Exchange, a global nonprofit that creates leaders in the preferred fiber and materials industry, Claire joins us to discuss the very important work being done to educate retailers on the ways they can help avert the ongoing climate crisis.
