How Can I Change My Fashion And Beauty Closets To More Sustainable? | Talking With Sophie Gripenberg, The Founder Of A Sustainable Closet

Join this episode of the Nordic Natural Beauty Podcast, where the host Satu Mäkinen talks with Sophie Gripenberg.

Sophie is a sustainability professional with several years of experience working and volunteering in fields related to fair trade, organic farming, climate change, poverty reduction, empowerment, and humanitarian response. As a sustainability coordinator for a large humanitarian organization, handling more than 300 second-hand shops, she understands the complexities of sustainable production and making sustainable choices as a consumer.

Sophie is also the founder of A Sustainable Closet - our brand new collaborating partner. She started the platform in a simple manner with blog posts on her outfits. The blog grew and it suddenly became a platform for sustainable fashion.

A sustainable fashion consultant, Isabelle Lind, joined the journey, and together they are now changing the way we think about sustainability in fashion. We are starting a collaboration because fashion and beauty really go hand in hand in many ways, and especially sustainability is a big subject to tackle in both industries today.

In this episode, you will hear how incredibly alike the industries and their challenges actually are, and how you can start your sustainable closet journey - in both fashion and beauty!

You can follow the journey of A Sustainable Closet on Instagram. Learn more about the initiative and get excited about sustainable fashion on!
