This is not a flash-in-the-pan sort of thing…that all of a sudden people are going to say “Oh green is out”. No, green is here to stay.
It’s a movement, not a trend. – Kelly Drennan
Kelly Drennan is the founder of Fashion Takes Action, the one and only organization in Canada that is greening the fashion industry from the inside out. Over the years, working as a fashion publicist inside this mega industry, Kelly witnessed the enormous impact of fashion – from energy, waste, chemicals and human rights abuses. Rather than turning a blind eye and contributing to the problem, she decided to be part of the solution and today her organization educates consumers about the clothes we wear so they make more sustainable choices about where they shop and what they buy.
