Sustainability has come to the forefront of most industries and the fashion industry is no exemption. However, it can be difficult to navigate the plethora of complex information available on all things sustainability and fashion. Especially with the lack of a rulebook forcing fashion conglomerates to follow a more ethical and sustainable business model. 

Simultaneously, as a consumer it becomes harder to make the right choices and implement changes when you don’t have the right information. 

That’s why we’ve compiled a list of our favorite podcasts covering sustainability in the fashion industry. Tune into one of these podcasts whether you’re a sustainability expert, a complete newbie, or just want to dive a little bit deeper into a specific topic. Happy listening!
