My guest this episode is Jane Milburn.
I met Jane a few years ago when she worked as a communicator in the health space. Since then she has had a complete change of career and is now a strong advocate for slow clothing and upcycling.
In 2014 Jane embarked on a 365-day Sew it Again campaign to bring together her wide-ranging career and life experiences in a meaningful way. As with the rising interest in home cooking and food growing for health and wellbeing, Jane believes there is a pressing need to rethink our approach to clothing for sustainability. Jane’s model includes empowering individuals to reimagine and recreate their own wardrobe collection by resewing at home.
Jane is part of the Fashion Revolution bringing awareness to where clothes come from and the resources from which they are made.The global consumption of apparel fibre has doubled in the last 20 years @janemilburn Click To Tweet Buying quality items once is the way to go @janemilburn Click To Tweet
