How to dress well and not ruin the planet


About this ThinkIn

At the current rate that we are consuming fast fashion, by 2050 estimates suggest we will need three times more of the planet’s natural resources than we did in 2000. So why are we still buying fast fashion? Is there a fashionable, ethical and affordable alternative? And what is the role of big business in trying to stop the crisis? 

Special guests include:

Bella Mackie, journalist and writer

Annick Ireland, founding director of The Immaculate Vegan 

Roberta Lee, founder of Roberta Style Lee, an image consulting business and a speaker, business consultant and the founder of the Ethical Brand Directory

Chair: Merope Mills, Editor and Partner, Tortoise


What is a Tortoise ThinkIn?

A ThinkIn is not another panel discussion. It is a forum for civilised disagreement. Modelled on what we call a ‘leader conference’ in the UK (or an editorial board in the US), it is a place where everyone has a seat at the table. It’s where we get to hear what you think, drawn from your experience, energy and expertise. It’s where, together, we sift through what we know to come to a clear, concise point of view. It is the heart of what we do at Tortoise.

Drinks from 6.00pm, starts promptly at 6.30pm. If you are late to a ThinkIn you can ‘SlinkIn’!

If you would like to contribute to this ThinkIn, let us know by emailing thinkin@tortoisemedia.com

We film our Thinkins so we can watch them back, edit the best bits and share them with members who weren’t there in person.

Members can find their ThinkIn booking code in My Tortoise, under My Membership.
