REBECCA BURGESS on Soil to Soil Fiber Systems /200

For The Wild

Science & Medicine

Up until this year, the global fashion industry was responsible for producing 150 billion items of clothing each year - items composed of carcinogenic and mutagenic dyes, items responsible for 8% of all greenhouse gas emissions, and items that require the outsourcing of atrocious working conditions and environmental degradation beyond our purview. However, fast fashion does not have to be our predestined future. This week’s guest, Rebecca Burgess, shares how regional and regenerative slow fashion is possible. In lieu of the behemoth that is fast fashion, how might regional textile communities strengthen our agricultural systems? How can our clothing become a mirror and homage to the places we love, the kin that can cloth us and the flora that colors our world? Music by Gun Outfit & Crispy Watkins & The Crack Willows.
