After presenting my views on sustainable practices at the VIA Design & Business University College teacher's sustainability conference, wonderful new collaborations with the school begun and I started holding some lectures for VIA students. So far I'm loving the experience and the excitement of the students. It's wonderful to see that we, the next generation of designers, have the potential and the will to transform the lifestyle sector at root!
I believe that the best strategy for creating a sustainable business is to integrate positive design in every part of the process of creating a product. Therefore I have had lectures for students that are studying to become designers, technicians or entrepreneurs.
While working on my own sustainable clothing business I have defined a set of tools that are essential when having in mind the Triple Bottom Line: people, planet, profit. My method is comprehensive and can be applied to any business in any industry by anyone who is willing to make a change for a healthier future.
