This is part two of the conversation between three manufacturers and an activist.

On the manufacturing side, I’m joined by Jay Shroff of Fashion Panda – an India-based manufacturer of timeless loungewear and womenswear apparel, Amrin Sachathep of Atlantic Mills – a vertically integrated denim manufacturer primarily based in Thailand, and Suzanne Vétillart CEO of Boma jewelry. Boma also has its factory in Thailand. They produce for their own brand as well as for larger retailers.

On the activist side, we’re joined by Kate, the educator and activist behind Sustainable Outfits. Sustainable Outfits is a blog, Instagram account, and beyond.

In this episode, we cover two big questions.  First: overproduction. How would Suzanne, Amrin, and Jay like Kate to engage in conversations about overproduction? Second: we talk about the common practice of calling out brands. What do Jay, Amrin, and Suzanne think about activists and educators calling out brands? Is it helpful? How does it impact their businesses? And what does Kate think of their suggestions?

Find out more about today’s guests: Jay Shroff of Fashion Panda, Amrin Sachathep of Atlantic Mills, Suzanne Vétillart CEO of Boma Jewelry (a certified B-corp) and Kate of Sustainable Outfits.
