Why You Can’t Shop Your Way to Sustainability

It’s a question I get asked often. I always know it’s coming, and just the anticipation of it makes my stomach turn. When people know that I am a sustainability professional focused on the fashion sector, they will invariably ask, “So, where do you shop?”

I hate the question, because I don’t, in fact, have a ready-made answer – a list of go to brands, materials, or companies to support.

A Street Style with Lissie Chappell

My friend Lissie has the best style. She’s a really thoughtful person, and you can see it in her clothes. Everything is vintage, carefully chosen, and perfectly tailored (but not too tailored) to fit her teeny tiny frame. She can do the effortlessly-undone yet still somehow polished thing in her sleep. We couldn’t resist snapping a photo of her look in the East Village a couple of weeks ago! Her thoughts on style and more below…

Studio Visit / Catbird

If you’ve ever stepped foot in the borough of Brooklyn, you have probably admired some delicate jewelry expertly layered on a female Brooklynite’s neck, hands, wrists or ears. Even more likely, some of that jewelry is a Catbird design. Founded in 2004 by Rony Vardi as a small storefront to house all the things she likes, she quickly realized the jewelry she sold out of that storefront was what she loved the most. Fifteen years later, with the added Co-Creative direction of Leigh Batnick Plessner, Catbird is cemented as a Brooklyn staple. Recently, they let us peek into their operations at The Brooklyn Navy Yard…
