Live on BBC News Discussing Clothes Swaps and Sustainable Fashion

On the 1st January 2020 I kicked off my year being invited into the BBC News studio as a sustainable style expert to discuss clothes swapping and sustainable fashion. I was on air with news presenter Julian Worricker for about 5-minutes. Click below to see the full interview.

BBC News – Roberta Lee talking about sustainable fashion

In this interview, I shared some stats about the importance of extending the life of clothes by nine months, which can reduce carbon, water and waste footprints by around 20-30% each annually (WRAP). This is why clothing swaps are great for keeping clothes in circulation and away from landfill.

I also highlighted some of my favourite sustainable fashion brands and why they were sustainable.

I showcased a classic white t-shirt made from 100% organic cotton by The White T-Shirt Company, which I recommend the everyday basics and surpassing #100wears

When it comes to investing in long-lasting pieces, I advised viewers to stop and think before purchasing and to try and support independent brands like those on Ethical Brand Directory rather than rushing out to the high street.

I also highlighted the small Sonia pouch by From Belo, which is made from 2 recycled plastic bottles and offcuts from the fashion industry. Each purchase also feeds a person in need in Brazil.
