The Good Dirt

Fashion, Food and Soil: What You Need to Know with Amy DuFault

Episode Summary

Amy has been a sustainable fashion writer for the past 13 years for media including Ecouterre, Participant Media, and The Guardian. Currently, she’s the Sustainability and Communications Director for Botanical Colors and she consults for sustainability minded folks like Elizabeth Cline (author of Overdressed and The Sustainable Closet), Buffy Bedding, and TS Designs. We cover a number of topics as Amy shares her current work with the Southeastern New England Fibershed. Along the way, the discussion touches on the many ways that care of the soil and slow living overlap, the concept of patience, of waiting, of working with nature instead of trying to control it, and of taking the opportunity to witness and heal our addictive behaviors as we do so. Whether we are farmers or not, every consumer decision we make somehow relates back to the soil, and we all have our part to play in regenerating a healthy world.
