My commitments

STATEMENTS & MANIFESTO

One of my main commitments is to reduce my ecological footprint by choosing traveling by train whenever is available. As I work in several cities in Europe, is going to be challenging.

1

I'm committed to use public transport whenever is possible, suitable and available in the places I am living and working. In case of using private transport, it will be as clean and green as possible.

2

Not just in fashion but in general lifestyle, I'm committed to reduce my waste and be logical, avoiding to the maximum the acquisition of single use plastic containers.

3

Whenever is not possible to avoid a plastic container, I will do my best to reuse it and give it a more permanent second life to prevent it from becoming land waste.

4

MORE TRAINS LESS PLANES

NO PLASTIC, IS FANTASTIC!

CIRCULARITY AS MODUS VIVENDI

UPCYCLING TO ZERO WASTE

NO TO FAST-FASHION

6

I love my clothes, and when they are torn or I can't use them anymore I won't throw them: I will keep a space to accumulate them and bring them to my fantastic seamstress, so she can make my designs come to real life.

5

Since I made my commitment to sustainability several years ago, I promised myself to never buy again a single piece of fast fashion clothing from any of those damaging brands in the industry. For me it is not an option.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT

I started working with the initial 8 Millenium Development Goals when the United Nations settled them and I was consulting for hotels. When they switched to the Sustainable Development Goals I embrace them as a huge improvement. As an actor involved in the creation of society's awareness in sustainability issues both in the tourism and fashion industries, I am committed with the UN in creating and divulging information that could generate a positive impact within the 17 different goals.
