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.
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.
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.
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.
More trains less planes
No plastic, is fantastic!
Circularity as modus vivendi
Upcycling fashion to zero waste
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.
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.
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.
