I am delighted to announce that I have been invited to be part of a wonderful panel of like-minded business people to talk about a subject very close to my heart. Sustainability. Hosted by The Keep Boutique.
So if you're in London and curious, get your ticket today! (Details below).
From food to fashion, home to beauty, you can’t ignore that sustainability is today’s zeitgeist.
But is it always so black and white?
Join us for an evening of lively discussion as we explore the grey areas surrounding the ideas and ideals of sustainability.
What are the implications of choosing organic?
Do the ideals of fair trade play out on the ground?
Is aspiring to ‘cleaner’ regimes – be it beauty, food or fashion - healthy?
Should we always choose all-natural products over synthetic alternatives?
Can sustainability inhibit diversity?
What societal pressures are at play when it comes to what we wear/eat and how we view ourselves and our bodies?
Can a more conscious approach to consumerism make a positive impact on our health, wider society and the environment, while still meeting our demands?
Conversation will hopefully lead us to a better understanding of the nuances within the food/fashion/homeware and beauty industries - helping us all make more considered choices when it comes to what we buy.
