Fashion Giant with a Conscience
Broadcast on 2016/03/26 (PT)
Director of Social Consciousness at EILEEN FISHER
Yes, Eileen Fisher! While 97% of all garments in the US are made elsewhere, they produce 20% of their fashion in Los Angeles and New York. Because of their use of organic fibers, they are supporting clean air, clean water and a healthy environment for workers and wildlife. Because Eileen Fisher is committed to dyeing all of their fabrics with safe chemicals AND the best practices for water and energy usage, they are asking their global dye houses to learn about the blue sign system. (Listen and learn with me!) EF is committed to fair trade practices, human rights, to supporting artisanal communities around the world, and to mapping their supply chain from farm to factory. Translation? Green Eileen! This show promises to provide hope for the fashion industry on a grand scale. This show made possible due to the generous support of Habitat for Humanity.
