CARE WHAT YOU WEAR & SO MUCH MORE...Jul 09, 2021
In this episode, I speak with Amelia Trumble, Co-Founder of ReTold Recycling. She and her partner, Alan Yeoh have solved one of the textile industry's biggest problems; how to keep our used clothes and other textiles out of landfills and off the beaches in Ghana and other places around the world. They have created one of the easiest ways to actually recycle our clothes and more, ensuring it all avoids the trash and goes to good use instead. Learn how you can lower your impact on the planet and help solve the problem our household textile waste creates.
I hope you enjoy this episode!
It Takes A Brave Soul
In 2005 Christal Earle was working as a Humanitarian Aid in the Dominican Republic alongside people who made their living out of the world's trash. She saw millions of items that had reached their end of life, but not their end of use, including the billions of tires that end up in the world's landfills each year. In this episode, I speak with Christal about her inspiration to launch Brave Soles to create handcrafted sandals and accessories from old tires and upcycled leathers. Despite the damage she's seen us do to people and the planet, Christal is one of the bravest, most positive people I've had the pleasure to speak with. Her story will inspire you and help you see that Climate Change doesn't have to destroy us and that it may actually present the best opportunity to create a business. I hope you enjoy this episode.
