On March 5th, Our Founder Jo Godden, was invited to talk at the AUB ‘Human’ Symposium at their campus in Poole. This was an amazing opportunity to talk to students about ‘Circles of Impact- How the circular economy can be applied to Fashion & Textiles.’ There were some interesting presentations and here are some of them:
