Fashion & The Fight For The Planet
This week we are celebrating Earth Day, the annual global event that involves more than a billion people in almost 200 countries demonstrating their support for the planet and protection of the environment. This year the theme is Restore Our Earth, and as part of a week-long programme of activities, Think City Institute has partnered with Finds of Bukit Kiara, Habitat Penang Fashion Revolution to present a series of virtual workshops and talk and film screenings.
We also have an interview with a zero-waste activist, Melissa Tan, who is also the acting country coordinator for Fashion Revolution, a global movement of fashion industry activists who are working to end human and environmental exploitation in the global fashion industry.
