A Ski Podcast Special: Picture Organic Clothing

In this Ski Podcast Special, Iain interviews Florian Palluel, Sustainability and Transparency Manager at Picture Organic Clothing (https://www.picture-organic-clothing.com/en/) .

Sustainability in the clothing industry has never been more important, with research showing it is responsible for up to 10% of greenhouse gas emissions (https://www.worldbank.org/en/news/feature/2019/09/23/costo-moda-medio-ambiente) and 20% of all global wastewater. 

During this interview we discuss many topics including: 

·       the history of the company

·       their supply chain and how they source their materials

·       why they choose to manufacture in Turkey & China and not France

·       what steps they are taking to reduce packaging

·       how they are making their new offices as sustainable as possible

·       whether in the future a zero-emission ski jacket might be possible

We also mention this survey (https://www.mckinsey.com/industries/retail/our-insights/the-influence-of-woke-consumers-on-fashion) by consultancy McKinsey about consumer views on sustainable fashion.
