Fashion Industry Shows Interest in Regenerative Agriculture

Some designers and companies in the fashion industry are putting their support behind regenerative agriculture, reports Vogue. For example, the Christy Dawn business has invested in regenerative farms growing cotton and botanical dyes in India. The article provides several examples of companies supporting farming practices that build soil health and sequester carbon. Rebecca Burgess, the founder of Fibershed, a non-profit that develops regenerative textile systems, explains the fashion industry’s potential to further regenerative agriculture this way: “I do believe fashion is where we can mainstream regenerative ag. I think in some ways, it’s more poised than the food industry to lead [the conversation], because fashion is more permanent. You don’t know what I ate for breakfast, but you know what I’m wearing.”
