"85% of disposable apparel ends up in a landfill," Annie Gullingsrud, Cradle to Cradle Innovation Institute

Think of all the stuff that the people in Houston, Florida and Puerto Rico tragically lost in the devastating recent hurricanes....

What if they replaced even 10 percent of it with sustainable clothing? Is it even possible? How?

Listen to Green Connections Radio host Joan Michelson's intriguing interview with the Director of Textiles and Apparel at the Cradle to Cradle Innovation Institute, Annie Gullingsrud, to find out how.

You'll hear:

  • What the circular economy is.
  • What to look for when buying clothes.
  • What certifications mean.
  • How communities can get more clean drinking water from a clothing manufacturing plant.
  • Tips for a career in sustainable fashion.

 And more….

You’ll look at your clothes and shop differently!
