The Future of Sustainable Fashion – How Conscious Companies & Consumers Can Make an Impact
March 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$21.83
Currently, fashion and textiles are the second most polluting industry in the world. Led by advertising promoting excessive consumption and increasing consumer demand, companies continue to push the industry towards fast fashion resulting in cheap clothes at the cost of harming both the environment and people.
Because what we wear is such an integral part of our everyday lives, each of us has an opportunity to influence the industry and make a positive impact by being more intentional about our purchasing decisions as well as making a conscious effort to consume less and only buy things we truly need.
Join us on March 20th at 7:00 PM for an inspiring and engaging conversation on the Future of Sustainable Fashion with experts from VOZ, New York Fair Trade Coalition, Sat Nam babe and Dopper who will share their insights on trends, challenges, and opportunities in the sustainable fashion industry. You’ll also have an opportunity to network with like-minded people from the Be Social Change Community and walk away with a better understanding of where your clothes come from as well as tips + strategies on how to be more intentional about the purchasing and disposing of your clothing.
Healthy + Sustainable Snacks Provided – Gluten-Free and Vegan Options Available.
We strive to make Be Social Change events zero waste – help us by bringing your Dopper or reusable water bottle to the event.
