Fast fashion is as rampant as ever. Big retailers such as Forever 21 and Zara quickly put new trends on racks while yesterday’s fashion gets thrown in the bin. It’s the never ending cycle of what’s in and what’s not, but there’s a much darker side of fashion that some people may not see.

Canadians send 9.5 million tonnes to landfills every year and the fashion industry is the second most polluting industry in the world. But one fashion company, founded by Kat Palmer, aims to make yesterday’s fashion trendy again. Her business, Fred and Bean, is one of several fashion companies in Canada that are challenging the unsustainable practices of mainstream fashion retailers. Have a listen into how Palmer got into sustainable fashion and her creative process when transforming something old into something new.

Almost all of the materials that Palmer uses, like threads, fabrics and buttons, are second hand. Photo courtesy of Kat Palmer
