Innovating Industries – Episode 1: Fashion

Have you ever wanted to know what goes on behind the scenes of some of the UK’s leading industries?

The Innovating Industries podcast explores exactly that, plunging into the troubles they face, their current achievements and finally their next steps.

In this three part series, we focus on three sectors that are trying to overcome their failings in sustainability, speaking to multiple professionals at the forefront as well as people with outside perspectives, to hear what’s changing and what the future holds.

In this episode the team explore the fashion industry and the negative impact it has on multiple factors such as the environment and labour workers, looking at how these issues have managed to develop and speaking to experts about how the industry can adapt to become more sustainable and improve overall for the future.

Featuring interviews with Jay Kerr, an activist from the No Sweat campaign, and Trewin Restorick, the founding CEO of hubbub and environmental campaigner.
