Fashion’s Evolution and Consumer Power

11/7/13- Ampleen, a New York green marketing firm, coordinated an educational event on the fashion and consumer power, inviting the public to come hear from experts on the topic of clothing and sustainability.

Amy Hall, Director of Social Consciousness for the brand Eileen Fisher was the keynote speaker, and other experts included professors from Fashion Institute of Technology speaking about how numerous companies are now trying to lessen their environmental impacts and ensure humane conditions for workers.

It is always a happy occasion to see a room full of people interested in knowing more about conscious consumption, and I saw many eager faces in the crowd of 100 looking to be part of the movement. A fun new business I learned about was EcoPlum, an online, NYC based green products store that sells ecofashion, cosmetics and accessories. Congratulations to my friend Sasha Cohen for hosting the panel : )
