Stories & Beer is a monthly “Fireside Chat” hosted by TriplePundit in San Francisco — BUT, this month, we’re taking it on the road to Philadelphia and New York City! Join us here in person – or online!
TriplePundit is continuing our focus on sustainability in the fashion and apparel industry for the rest of 2014. We have explored sustainability trends in fashion throughout the lifecycle: from the cotton fields all the way to the landfill. Water, is one of the most important and overlooked ingredients in fashion. How are fashion brands looking to work with the challenges of water conservation? With cotton and other crops? What are some of the ways companies are reducing, exploring less water-intensive textiles and working within a circular economy?
Philadelphia: On Tuesday, September 30, join TriplePundit’s San Francisco-based team, along with representatives from B Lab and three Philadelphia-area Certified B Corps, in a casual conversation at The Hub Cira Center. TriplePundit’s founder, Nick Aster, will lead the discussion. For those who attend in person, we’ll be serving up local, sustainable beer and snacks! Click HERE for more info.
New York City: On Thursday, October 2, please join us in NYC for an evening of conversation and networking! TriplePundit is continuing our focus on sustainability in the fashion and apparel industry for the rest of 2014, and this will be the topic of discussion.
