06 Nov So You Succeeded – But What Comes Next? A Conversation With Factory45’s Shannon Lohr
Meet this week’s guest, Shannon Lohr, Founder of Factory45.
What you’ll learn
As the sustainable and ethical fashion space grows, one has to wonder what the terms “sustainable” and “ethical” really even mean. Is truly sustainable possible? What does ethical mean exactly, and are we even using it in the right way? Shannon is back on the Spirit of 608 to share with us her thoughts on the matter, this time she’s armed with a couple more years of experience and a more holistic point of view of the ethical and sustainable fashion industry.
How you’ll be inspired
So often we think about business growth bringing more complications and headaches. Bigger business, bigger problems, right? But Shannon has a different story: as her business grew, things actually got easier. Like a lot easier. Hear how she did it on this week’s show.
What you’ll tell your friends
Did you know that there’s a new online shop for sustainable and ethical, made-in-the-USA brands? You’ll find an excellent, curated selection of labels — and each company actually came through the Factory45 program, so you know they’ve been trained to produce apparel as responsibly as possible.
