Could your clothing choices be part of your commitment to a sustainable world? Hear about how this is possible as local designers, fashion bloggers, shop owners, and other supporters gather this Thursday, November 16 for a presentation by the nonprofit Fibershed on the science and community behind climate-beneficial wool. Learn about how some design communities are sourcing natural, biodegradable materials from regional farms and ranches: these places are working to restore their soils and regenerate their landscapes by drawing carbon down into the ground to create healthier, more productive soil, simultaneously reducing the carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. GDS Cloth Goods hosts this free event, with pastries donated by Firebrand Bakery. RSVP to Jess: office@fibershed.com
Edible East Bay covered Fibershed and its founder Rebecca Burgess in our Summer 2014 issue. Read about how the project was born in 2010 when Burgess made a commitment to wear only clothing made with dyes, fibers, and labor sourced within 150 miles from her home.
