The New York Times ran a very enlightening story about the fashion industry's next big goal: zero waste.
"Among those instrumental in pushing for change is Mr. Rissanen, a ruddy-faced Finnish designer who is Parsons’ first-ever assistant professor of fashion design and sustainability. He is teaching the new zero-waste course with Scott Mackinlay Hahn, a founder of the organic fashion label Loomstate, who, along with a colleague, will provide insights into actual business practices." - NYT
