In this episode we are joined by Rachel Faller, founder of  Tonlé, a zero waste sustainable fashion brand. It is a maker-led community that values inclusivity, honesty and reciprocity, and creates a purposeful future for fashion: one that is restorative, regenerative and just. We’ll hear about Rachel’s journey that led to the creation of a sustainable fashion brand; how she cultivates impact; the importance of challenging existing models of investment in social enterprises; and how she’d like Tonlé  to be remembered.
