Sustainable Atlanta Roundtable

May 4: Wear not, waste not

Consumers are becoming much more aware of their clothing purchases and the impact of those choices on people and the environment. Textile production in the U.S. is an incredibly resource-intensive process, requiring immense amounts of water, fossil fuels, and chemicals that play a role in creating just a single item of clothing. Take, make, waste is all too common in the apparel industry, but there are a growing number of brand names breaking the cycle.

Join leaders from Alternative Apparel, Patagonia, re:Loom, and Charity Recycling Services as we explore the environmental and social implications of what we wear, and why they believe in transparent, ethical, and regenerative economies in apparel design and manufacturing.
