Sustainability: Think Disruptively, Creatively, and Differently

BY GABRIELLE DANZEISEN, THE ROBIN REPORT

Sustainable business practices have evolved from a slogan to a purpose. MOTIF and The Mills Fabrica hosted Re-Wire Sustainability 2021, a global sustainability event for the fashion apparel/retail industry to advocate for thinking disruptively, creatively and differently. Janice Wang, chair of the board of MOTIF and CEO of Alvanon stated emphatically, “Cleaning up the fashion industry is everyone’s job. Everyone must play a part in this whole journey. We must share our knowledge, no one person can do it all.”

Speakers at the global ReWire: Sustainability 2021, were unanimous. To make the fashion industry SUSTAINABLE, we need to give our colleagues and supply chain partners ACCESS to the strategic data and technologies they need to make and share decisions. ReWire was a gathering by doers for doers. It examined existing and promising solutions, and presented the practical steps and actions that the industry can and must take NOW. ReWire: Sustainability 2021 was the start of a learning journey for a sustainable way forward – the PRACTICAL dos, don’ts, choices, compromises, experiments, processes, and new technologies.
