  1. Tackling Fast Fashion, Sustainable Alternatives, and the Rule of Five with Emily Fenves Carly Jean Puch 51:29

Embark on a transformative exploration of sustainable Fashion with Emily from Lander Line, as she shares the pivotal moments that led her from a cycle of consumption to becoming a beacon for eco-conscious Wardrobe choices. Our exchange sheds light on the hidden costs of fast Fashion, both environmental and human, and unveils the psychological undercurrents that fuel our shopping frenzy. Emily’s journey dovetails with insights from her social work background, providing a rare perspective on the far-reaching impact of our Fashion footprints, while also offering practical guidance for those yearning to shift towards a mindful approach in their own lives.

The allure of the latest trends often masks the darker truths of the Fashion world, but this episode pulls back the curtain, revealing the harsh realities of garment workers’ exploitation and the environmental wreckage caused by our appetite for new clothes. From the eye-opening ‘rule of five’ challenge to the struggles inherent in textile recycling, we traverse the multifaceted challenges faced when attempting to dress responsibly.

Closing with personal reflections on our sustainability challenges, we underscore the profound impact that individual choices can have in the grander scheme of environmental well-being. Whether it’s committing to a modest Wardrobe, embracing secondhand gems, or simply pausing before the next impulsive buy, each step we take is a stitch in the fabric of a more sustainable future. This episode isn’t just about changing how we dress; it’s about changing how we live, one conscious choice at a time.

Guest Bio:

Emily Fenves created lander line in September 2021 after becoming burnt out with her own consumption habits. As a regular shopper, she found herself spending an exhaustive amount of time browsing, buying, returning, and purging. She embarked on a journey to learn more about the “why” behind her overconsumption, and decided to help others do the same. Upon her research, she discovered how environmentally damaging the Fashion waste crisis is, and became an advocate for change. Through sharing her personal research with her audience, as well as partnering with ethical brands, change-makers, and non-profit organizations, lander line brings insight and hope to those who are inspired to reduce their carbon footprint through their personal consumption.

As I stumbled through the perils of answering the ultimate question, "what do you want to do with your life?" I knew somehow my answer would incorporate helping others. This translated into paths that, when I tuned into the universe, I realized were very connected. (Funny how that always happens!)

People are complicated, messy, and layered with identities. So is this space. I am a meditation enthusiast that sits in quietness every morning and a lover of blasting 90's hip-hop at full volume. I'm a gym rat and a yoga instructor. I am both learner and a teacher. We are all many things. Together we can make them all work.

I love to share all the things I'm learning along the way. Learning how to be your most fabulous self but being honest about how damn hard and messy it can be along the way lets you speak your truth. It allows you to best use your voice for the causes that matter to you. Let's get healthy and change the world together!
