Brands are made up of people and people want to do the right thing.

 

But, if the people at your brand are like most everyone else in our industry, they’re feeling overwhelmed and underprepared to discuss, tackle, and/or explain sustainability at your brand.

It’s not their fault…

Most of us didn’t get the sustainability education we need through our educational or professional pathways.

I know - I had to go figure it out on my own.

What are clients saying?

_

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. - J. Morrissette, Design Professional

_

I really appreciated the tone of the educational delivery: Derek delivers with optimism, and constructive energy - on top of stark, fact-based science & study from progressive thought-leaders. Frankly, taking this course felt very empowering and ignited and a fresh fire in my soul. - M. Anderson, Design Professional

About Derek.

I've been a part of the apparel industry for more than 25 years.

But perhaps like you, I didn't learn about sustainability until I was deep into my career.

I made these courses and workshops and developed this method to get the sustainability knowledge I’ve acquired over the last 15 years straight to you and your team in the most efficient - yet thorough and effective - way possible. Learn the essentials, get access to resources, and begin making progress immediately.

Additionally, I know this industry, from the inside, out - I’ve co-founded and launched my own sustainable fashion brand KOZM, been a Global VP of Sustainability for the iconic brand Volcom, worked directly with, and learned from, the world-class Sustainability team at the global luxury group Kering for 4+ years, developed and taught sustainability in fashion courses (a 3-semester certificate program) at Orange Coast College, and have worked with lifestyle brands you’ll surely recognize like: New Balance, Roark, Quiksilver, RVCA, Billabong, Sami Miro, and PJ Salvage,  and have been called on to contribute to projects and events at Snowsports Industries America (SIA), Outdoor Industry Association (OIA), GreenStory, Seeding Change, SIMA, and more.
