Is apparel upcycling the quickest route to carbon neutrality?
21 May 21
Steven Bethell and Ian Welsh
Steven Bethell, founder of Bank & Vogue and Beyond Retro, talks with Ian Welsh about the massive potential for what can happen to all the apparel items that are donated to charities that can’t be re-sold. Bethell outlines how repurposing can maximise the value in what has traditionally been regarded as “waste” and argues the case for “innovative solutions to the crisis of stuff”.
Bank & Vogue was a sponsor of Innovation Forum’s recent sustainable apparel and textiles conference.
