One Planet Fashion

By Julia Roebuck
The global fashion and textile industry is not operating within Earth's planetary boundaries. To continue “business-as-usual” is not an option. Julia Roebuck, founder of Upcycle Fashion, explores how we can be part of a better fashion and textiles industry in which people and planet thrive. Music: "I'm a Traveller" by Joanna Wallfisch @joannawallfisch Recorded & edited by Julia Roebuck @upcyclefashion
