How sustainable designer Bill McDonough is re-fashioning the fashion industry
In early 2017, "Fashion for Good" was launched to introduce more "good" into the fashion world: "good materials, good water, good energy, good economy and good lives."
Fashion for Good has created a "platform for innovation," says, co-founder Bill McDonough, through accelerator and scaling programs, which bring together brands, manufacturers, retailers and innovators to address issues of unsustainability in supply chains. By open-sourcing technologies down to the molecule and across-industry, Fashion for Good hopes to "close the loop" and "move this industry towards circularity."
"The industry needs to move," McDonough said. And he’s trying to push it.
