The latest Sustainable Business covered podcast starts with a discussion as to why a VF Corporation brand is promoting sustainable apparel to consumers in a way that wades into the big plastics debate.

Icebreaker’s chief brand and product officer Carla Murphy, head of product design Alastair Smith and Vortex Swim’s crew member Paul Lecomte sit down with edie to explain why Vortex Swim is planning on swimming the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

Following that, Sarah talks environmental docuseries with Charney Magri the co-director and producer of Catwalk to Creation. You can watch a glimpse of Magri’s new social film here.

Finally, RELX’s director of corporate responsibility Márcia Balisciano (MBE), outlines the company’s leading-edge approach to the SDGs that leans heavily on science and methodologies.
