Bottom line -- I urge everyone to read it - whether you are an educator, student, fashionista, or fashion industry professional - you'll be rewarded with engaging insights about all aspects of sustainable fashion. . .From the Foreward written by William McDonough to the last section on best practices in the fashion industry, this edited book provides a comprehensive overview of many of the current issues, challenges, practices, and possibilities around designing, producing, and retailing fashion merchandise the supports sustainable environments, communities, and companies. -- Leslie Burns, Responsible Global Fashion LLC This book, in its second edition, is a call to action for the fashion industry and all citizens who engage it-all of us who design, make, buy, wear and dispose of garments. Janet Hethorn and Connie Ulasewicz began this conversation and continue it today. They see the value of connecting how people live with issues of sustainability, global economics, and the realities of the fashion industry. Their compendium highlights key advances as well as barriers. It renders visible an "essay of clues" that we can all hope leads to a collective, realistic optimism for a positive future. It is an important, inspiring guidepost for fashion in practice. -- William McDonough, founder of the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute and author of Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things The strength of the book is that it gives an overall view of the sustainable fashion chain, with great examples of practitioners. -- Manchester Metropolitan University, UK * Jennifer Prendergast *
