You might not realize it, but your closet does a lot of damage to the planet. Fashion is one of the world’s biggest polluters. In fact, the fashion industry alone is responsible for 10% of global carbon emissions. That’s why Nisolo, a leather shoe and accessory brand, is on a mission to make its products more responsibly.

The brand’s philosophy states on its website: “The products we wear should not only look good, but should enhance the lives of the people who made them, give back more to the planet than they take away and make our lives a little more enjoyable.”

On this episode of In The Know: Sustainability Week, host Crystal chats with Nisolo COO Becky Hansen to learn more about the brand’s practices, vision and shoes. Watch the interview above and take a look at the 3D model below. It shows just how many tons of shoes are throw out each year globally. We can do better — and we must.
