The most interesting sustainability news this week is also a little sad; a new study surprisingly suggests that millennials’ purchasing decisions are made first and foremost based on convenience and price/value and not on sustainability credentials. I hope companies will focus on all three things and not consider sustainability as unimportant because honestly, who doesn’t want convenience and price/value to match? And when the clothing industry is set to consume a quarter of the global carbo supply by 2050 how can we afford not to change the industry asap?
