EP. 18 Making Fashion Circular Again with Lynn Wilson

Published: Nov. 16, 2020, 3 a.m.

Can fashion really be ethical unless it's circular? This week, we're chatting with circularity expert, Lynn Wilson, about why fashion needs to be a 'closed-loop system', and why we should value access over ownership. Lynn explains the reality of textile recycling and zero-waste design, how we as consumers can get more circular, and what fashion has in common with space exploration (yes, really!).
