S2 E23 Conscious Clothing

In this episode we speak with several clothing creators about how they do it ethically and with the planet in mind.  Ellen Doyle joins regular host Alison Hanly to discuss issues around fast fashion and the textiles industries.  We also have interviews with Linnet Good talks about upcycling, that is, how she makes beautiful clothing out of second hand fabric, table cloths and sheets and Kathryn McAllister tells us about her brand of ethical undies, called Wonderpants.

Saltgrass is produced in Castlemaine on the land of the Dja Dja Wurrung people.  We pay respects to elders past, present and emerging.
