Sustainable Fashion has been discussed for quite a while, and we all know about the problems in the fashion industry (resource consumption, textile waste, carbon footprint, pollution etc). So what’s holding us back from making progress? And what needs to change?
Welcome to a SWEDTalk where you meet representatives working within fashion in different ways. Lauren Boucer from the Hong Kong-based NGO Redress will lead a discussion with Malin Lundahl, the Sustainability Manager from H&M, and Sarah Fung from Hula who decided to leave the big fashion brands to rather develop her own fashion business within the circular economy.
Who should attend?
Anyone interested in sustainable fashion and/or the future.
Lauren works at Redress, a pioneering Hong Kong based environmental charity with a mission to prevent and transform textile waste to catalyse a circular economy and reduce fashion’s water, chemical and carbon footprints. Lauren’s work centres around developing educational events and resources for consumers through partnerships with fashion brands, corporates and schools. Her background is in intellectual property law and advertising law. Lauren sees fashion as an important vehicle for self-expression and wants to help build a future where we can continue to enjoy fashion in a more sustainable way.

Malin is passionate about how successful business can, and should, have a positive impact on the environment and people in its full value chain.
