When I declared that I would transform the clothing industry, people told me I was crazy...
"It's risky", they said.
"You don't even know how to sew", they reminded me.
"You and your big ideas", they dismissed.
But, guess what? I did it anyway. I started Seed from my kitchen table and took on transforming the fashion industry. I was compelled to make a difference because once I saw what was happening in the industry, I couldn't un-see it.
How could I feel good knowing:
- that “mainstream” synthetic clothing is made of fabric that leaches harmful chemicals into my body as I wear it?!
- about the impact on our planet from the pollution that is a by-product of how that fabric is made?!
- the horrific, unethical conditions that an innocent worker had to endure/ risk just to sew it?!?
"It's just the way it is...", they resigned.
"If powers that be don’t see anything wrong with it, I wouldn't worry about it", they justified.
"There are bigger problems for people to worry about", they assured me.
AND TO THINK: THEY TOLD ME I WAS CRAZY!!!
