Garmology: A fashion more circular – With Professor Becky Earley (#98 S04/E25)

Professor Becky Earley guests Garmology this week to talk about making the industry of fashion more circular, and what circularity actually means. We cover topics such as how much we wear our clothes, the problems charity shops face, the pros and cons of user-to-user reselling, how the production of clothes has been steeply increasing and the interest from the garment industry in making in a better way, the ways materials need to change to enable recycling, how nothing can replace polyester and why garments workers can’t just be paid a proper wage. And how it feels to have been working on the same problems for the past 30 years.
