    The rise of the circular economy

    The rise of the circular economy

    Fanny Moizant is President and Co-Founder of Vestiaire Collective, the leading global platform for desirable pre-owned fashion - and she is an undisputed pioneer of circularity. Fanny came up with the idea to launch Vestiaire Collective after noticing significant changes in the way that people were consuming fashion: that is, they were buying much, much more, yet wearing and possessing so much less. Vestiaire Collective enables conscious people to celebrate and participate in a sustainable alternative to throw-away fashion and gives those who give a fuck the opportunity to easily join the circular fashion movement every single day.
    On this episode of GAF Is The New Black, Fanny and host, Jo Lorenz, talk about the circular economy, excessive linear consumerism and, of course, climate change.

Black Lives Matter

Thanks Frederick and Jo for a great interview. Easy listening. Just reinforces what should come naturally in this world ... but sadly doesn’t. Maybe change is coming.

Topical topics - A must listen

A very engaging podcast, have re-listened to several sections already. Jo Lorenz is a powerful voice with no nonsense and clear facts and figures, no glossing. Aja Barber is a wealth of knowledge across such important and meaningful topics I could listen to her for hours. A must listen. Melinda
