Dr. Jane Goodall is best known as the founder of the Jane Goodall Institute, which promotes the understanding and protection of chimpanzees and other great apes and their habitats. However, not as many people know that Jane has also become a force in the movement for a more sustainable fashion industry. She is building awareness of the harmful potential impacts that production, distribution, and waste in the apparel sector can have on the environment.

  • Look into Modern Fabrics in Charlotte, NC. (modern-fabrics.com) They keep commercial grade/ upholstry fabrics from reaching the landfill by reselling left-overs from furniture manufacturers. Their online business ships fabrics throughout the US and abroad. Owners James & Ewa Powell are dedicated to saving the environment and making a difference.
