The next wave of sustainability in the apparel industry is here and there's ONE thing you need to do…

Sustainability in strategy, products, materials, manufacturing, and operations is no longer an aspirational, nice-to-have. Today, it’s an imperative, a must-have; consider it table stakes.

Climate appropriate and responsible business is expected by your customers, your peers, the industry itself, and even policy and regulation. Let’s face it - we’re all counting on you. If your team’s not fully up to it, execution will be weak, and you’ll inevitably fall behind.

First step? Your team needs to learn more. You'll need a guide who knows the space to help you on the journey; I've been there and I can help.

EMPOWERING: A BETTER OPTION TO CONSULTING

The Underswell method is a longer-term coaching/consulting hybrid experience based on a sustainability learning curriculum I've developed over the last 5 years. It's been thoroughly tested, by students and brands, and it's unlike anything on the market. It will get your team fully informed, engaged, and ready for sustainable fashion business in this next crucial decade.

My approach gives your team the tools to tackle the climate crisis, sustainability, and responsible sourcing and responsible purchasing at your brand, and makes your brand a part of the solution, rather than a part of the problem.

Let’s face it, you and I both know there are a lot of problems we need to address in the apparel industry. There's no better time than now to get started.

Get your brand on board - Engage with Derek now

Going into the course I knew little about sustainability, and now I feel equipped to hold a job position in fashion sustainability. The course changed my life in how I see fashion, nature and the resources we use. I use the course principles every day of my life from the products I purchase to the food I eat.
