Fashion from Dung
Jalila Essaiidi, artist and entrepreneur, makes lots of innovations, by using natural materials for making products. One of her innovations is making fashion clothing from cow dung. She presented this and other ideas at the sustainability symposium organized by the Corporate Social Responsibility of the Netherlands (MVO), at Interface Netherlands, 10th of October 2018.
Geanne van Arkel, sustainability manager of Interface, is enthusiastic about the book Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming, by Paul Hawken. It contains the top 100 solutions to reverse global warming.
These are my highlights of this half-day symposium, attended by 180 people from industry. I am partner of MVO/De Groene Zaak and always draw inspiration from their meetings.
