In this weeks sustainability news I’m (among others) sharing articles on a few new brands that have built their business with sustainability at their core, already established brands that are changing theirs to be more sustainable and an interesting article with a fellow Dane who uses blockchain technology. Read on for all the interesting articles from around the web this week.

According to Vogue, 2017 was the year sustainable fashion became sexy. I certainly agree the conversations has spread and if you’re interested in fashion you will undoubtedly have joined the conversation about how necessary sustainable actions are. Now we just need more people to actually commit to it and not just talk about it.

Speaking of commitment; I love Patagonia for doing this and I’m so impressed by Eileen Fisher’s moves towards a more circular business model. Eileen Fisher is also the biggest B Corporation in the New York State and 40% of the company is owned by her employees.
