Sustainable fashion designer Selina Sanders was pretty much destined for a career in fashion. She comes from a long line of creative and stylish people. She joins us to talk about her family, her mom's struggles as a mother/wife/designer and her own move from the the Philippines to the U.S. as a teenager. And of course: her concerns with how the industry is operating. This is part one of three.

Also: an introduction to the official Clotheshorse Patreon. Please consider supporting Amanda and the Clotheshorse mission!

It's the first episode of NOTHING IS DISPOSABLE month (aka September), and Melissa of Vellum St. Soap Company is here to educate us about soap (and so much more). We talk about skin care, packaging waste and fragrances...but we also muse about throwaway culture, food waste, and so much more. And Amanda discusses the fallacy that beauty/personal care products are disposable.

Jenise, co-founder of Thuja, joins Amanda to talk about why she is passionate about educating others about the scourge of greenwashing and ideas for ways we can make better decisions in our own day-to-day lives. We’ll also talk about some of our least favorite greenwashers and greenwashing techniques, like carbon offset and tree planting campaigns. Also: Amanda breaks down the role fashion media plays in not only promoting and perpetuating greenwashing claims, but also legitimizing them and turning them into “facts” by repeating them over and over again.

This conversation with Jess (@jesinspace) is the perfect combination of #LaborMonth and #PersonalStyleMonth (which we are observing over at clotheshorse.world). She has had approximately 9-1000 different jobs and she's learned/observed a lot along the way! And now she is a content creator in the plus size style space. She has a lot to tell us about work, the fashion industry, and style for all sizes.

P.S. This is the second episode in a row where Tony Danza is mentioned. How? Why?

This is episode 74, the second episode of Labor Month! And wow, there is so much stuff in today’s episode! We’re going to do things in a different order than we typically do:

★First, we’ll hear the last bit of our conversation with Shelby. We are going to talk about her business selling secondhand and returns, with a few stops along the way at yard sales and Value City.

★Next, Clotheshorse All-Star, Dani of Picnicwear dropped by so we could talk about something that has been on both of our minds (and maybe yours, too): big retailers/fast fashion brands “collab”ing with small makers and designers, often in these “marketplace” set ups. If you’re a small business owner, you won’t want to miss that conversation.

★And then, as if that wouldn’t be exciting enough, we'll hear two work stories from members of our community.

This is episode 75--wow, that’s a pretty big number! And we’re getting deeper into Labor Month! Today’s special guest is Sarah and she’s here to talk to us about modern slavery, the severe exploitation of other people for personal or commercial gain. We are going to talk about prison labor, marriage schemes in India, and so much more. These are things that are happening around the world right now, but just don’t get a lot of coverage in the media. They are sort of like “open secrets.”

Ways you can help India:
How to help India during its COVID surge — 12 places you can donate
Bloom India

This episode also includes three work stories about "inappropriate clothing", why you should read/write Glassdoor reviews, and Coco Chanel's Secret Life as a Nazi Agent.

Also, Amanda gives an update on the Uyghurs and has a challenge for you:

★Every day for the next week, tweet at FIVE major global brands each day...or comment on the instagrams of five major brands: "What are you doing to ensure there is no Uyghur forced labor in your supply chain?” followed by #uyghurlivesmatter.
