Natalia Allen: Social Responsibility With Style
What are you wearing right now? Tube socks from China? A Patagonia fleece? A pair of pants made from hemp? Most people probably don’t think that much about the social and environmental impact of our clothing choices. But our guest this week on Sea Change Radio, Natalia Allen, believes that you don’t have to be wearing a tee-shirt with a slogan to make a statement with your clothes. She’s been called an “conscientious fashionista” who not only promotes more responsible consumer behavior, encouraging us all to think about the environmental and human costs of cheap clothing and textiles, she’s actually producing clothing and accessories that give consumers a stylish set of alternatives. Sea Change Radio host Alex Wise talks with Natalia Allen about making fashion more sustainable, and sustainability more fashionable.
