Electric Runway Episode 119: How ThredUp is Using AI to Shape a More Circular Fashion Future

Fashion futurist Amanda Cosco interviews Chris Homer of ThredUp to discover how the California company is bringing Silicon Valley innovation to the $24 billion resale market in order to drive a more sustainable and circular fashion future. All over the world, the Climate Crisis is on everyone’s mind; Last week, millions of activists and concerned citizens took to the streets for a global climate strike, urging leaders to take meaningful action towards curbing catastrophic climate change. So what does this have to do with the fashion industry, you may be asking? Well, a lot. It’s widely known that fashion and apparel manufacturing is the second-largest polluter in the world next to oil and gas. From the chemicals it takes to transform raw materials into textiles to the amount of water required to produce a single t-shirt, fashion’s dirty secret is no longer a secret.This episode is a part of our ongoing pre-coverage of WEAR—that’s the World Ethical Apparel Roundtable— taking place October 7th to 8th 2019 in Toronto. Hosted by non-profit Fashion Takes Action, WEAR aims to bring together sustainability experts, thought-leaders, and decision-makers in apparel to uncover how the industry can improve practices to move fashion towards a more conscious and circular future.Blog post for this episode--> More on ThredUp--> https://www.thredup.com/Discover Fashion Takes Action--> https://fashiontakesaction.com/Check out WEAR Conference October 7-8 2019 in Toronto --> wear.fashiontakesaction.com/Subscribe on iTunes --> podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/elec…st/id1064514329Follow us on Instagram --> www.instagram.com/electric_runway/Follow us on Twitter -->twitter.com/Electric_Runway

Electric Runway Episode 117: Sustainability's Golden Age

It’s September, which means it’s officially fashion season, but before the runway shows kick off in New York we’re bringing you a conversation about sustainability in the fashion industry. When it comes to sustainability, it seems as though the fashion industry is experiencing a kind of reckoning. According to a recent article from Fast Company, the fashion sector is accelerating the pace of the predicted climate disaster. In 2015, fashion and manufacturing generated 1.2 billion tonnes of greenhouse gas and is responsible for a fifth of global water pollution and a third of microplastics in the ocean. So what are fashion brands doing about it? As a consumer, it’s difficult to wade through the array of information that’s out there. Fast fashion chains like H&M and Zara are making efforts towards using more responsible materials and recycling through take-back programs, but how are you truly supposed to know who made your clothes, and which ones are truly sustainable? At the same time, new business models like clothing rental services that are popping up seem to be a reaction to mass consumption, but can they really thrive? Here to help us sort through it all is Kelly Drennan. Kelly has been an advocate for sustainability in the fashion industry for more than a decade. She is a sustainable fashion expert and advocate for the circular economy, as well as the founder of Fashion Takes Action, the only non-profit in Canada dedicated to creating a conscious fashion future.Electric Runway is proud to be a supporting media partner of WEAR 2019. As such, we’ll be bringing you conversations from key thinkers at WEAR leading up to the October event, so stay tuned for that. If you’d like to attend, use the discount code ER 15 to receive 15% off your tickets, just head to Electric Runway for more details. We’ll also be covering WEAR live from the show floor, so stay tuned to us on socials, we’re @Electric_Runway.Blog post for this episode --> https://electricrunway.com/sustainabilitys-golden-age-in-conversation-with-kelly-drennan-of-fashion-takes-action/Learn more about Fashion Takes Action here --> https://fashiontakesaction.com/More about WEAR Conference here --> https://fashiontakesaction.com/Follow Electric Runway on Instagram --> www.instagram.com/electric_runway/Subscribe to the podcast on iTunes --> podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/elec…st/id1064514329

In fact, according to IT World Canada, as the tech industry expands, Canada is predicted to have 216,000 tech positions filled by 2021. With so much activity surrounding the Toronto-Waterloo corridor, it’s no wonder the area has quickly earned the nickname Silicon Valley North.There was so much to do and see at Collision, but at Electric Runway we’re focused on fashion, retail, and consumer product innovation, so those are the stories we’re bringing to you from this inaugural event.
