Eric has been navigating sustainability through the fashion industry for the past 40 years. In this episode, he discusses the effects of dramatic market changes over the decades (including the rise of fast fashion) on his business and the process of rebuilding and resiliency (especially with the 10,000 Pounds of Cotton Project) with the triple bottom line – People, Planet, Profit. Eric pushes us to think about the impact of the goods we consume and the places we spend our money while considering that sustainability is a journey, not a destination.
About Lady Farmer
Founded in 2016, Lady Farmer was formed in response to the growing movement of women who identify with nature and its cycles, simple comforts, tradition and sustainability. Mother-daughter duo Mary & Emma Kingsley joined forces when they realized they shared a need for more ethically produced and sustainable clothes that fit their lifestyle. Today, Lady Farmer continues to cultivate a community for those seeking independence from existing food and fashion systems that are harmful to the planet and its people. We offer functional, fashionable, sustainable clothing and products for the intentional lifestyle, and we are a resource for the modern woman of all ages who yearns for a simpler way of life.
