PSA 📢: Sustainable Packaging supplier, noissue. has launched a podcast! It’s called Conscious Commerce, and its aim is to show you that sustainability doesn’t have to be a scary word in business, featuring their global community of founders, executives and experts from around the world.⁠

Expect to hear from guests who run leading brands in the United Kingdom, New Zealand, the United States, Canada, Australia and further afield about how they grew their businesses, how they approach sustainability and social impact, and the change they’re working to make, in the world.

Flora, our Co-Founder + Head of Product has been featured on the 2nd episode, where she talks about the history of SupplyCompass and how we’re helping fashion brands embed sustainable principles through digitization.⁠

Conscious Commerce can be found on Spotify, Youtube, Buzzsprout and  Apple Music.

Key Takeaways

🇮🇳 Being in India, visiting factories made the disconnect with brands clear. Relationships used to be long-term but they’ve become transactional and one-sided.

📄 Asking a factory for certifications isn’t the place to start your relationship.

👩‍❤️‍👩 Brands and factories can set themselves up for better long-term relationships by moving past the transactional data exchange and constant chasing and instead focus on freeing up time for deeper connections.

🧩 Sustainable materials are a good start but just one piece of the big puzzle.

📆 Excel and Asana aren’t built for brand x supplier collaboration.

🔮 The businesses that succeed in the next 5 years will be those that rewire their supply chains like Allbirds, House of Baukjen and PANGAIA.

🌱 Start adopting digital tools across your business now if you want to be in a position to map your supply chain and have visibility into what you’re responsible for.

🏁 Don’t try and do everything, focus on one or two products and be transparent on where your supply chain is at.
Be clear about what you care about and hold to those one or two non-negotiables and stick to them. Explain what you can’t do — transparency for the win.

🌎 She wants the change to be that we don’t have to talk about sustainability because it’s the status quo. It needs to be more easy, accessible and cost-effective to do The Right Thing than work in the old way.

The Right Thing #4 – Designing Behavioural Change in Fashion Tech

Behavioural design is a powerful tool to shape decision-making, processes, experiences and results. In the fashion industry where the status quo has been untouched for too long, designing technology to help people do the right thing for both themselves and others, will go a long way in creating meaningful systems-wide change.
