We didn’t want this episode to be a doom and gloom “look at all these scary facts and panic” episode. There’s a lot of that out there already and I think that we’re in danger of becoming desensitised to it all. 

So instead we’re going to touch upon some issues and yes, there will be some scary facts but we’re going to try and focus on the really exciting answers to these problems, and the amazing people out there who are trying to shift fashion in a more sustainable direction and how they’re doing it. 

We hope that by the end of this episode you go away feeling inspired and encouraged to change fashion as we know it. 

That’s quite a big ask actually….even if this only makes you feel slightly hopeful then we’ll still be happy!
