Episode #7 About Fashion

Have you found you need a big wardrobe clear-out coming into the new year? Our latest episode explores the topic of responsible fashion and the dangers of fast fashion for our planet. With the fashion industry accounting for 10% of global carbon emissions, thinking about alternative choices we can all make is a great way to enter 2024.

We are joined by Javier Saborido from the NGO ONGD Madre Coraje. Javier answers questions on:

🔄 What practical steps can all of us as consumers take to help reduce fast fashion? 
🌍 How does the fashion industry need to transform for a sustainable future? 
📈 What recent trends in fashion may hold the answers for a zero-waste industry in the future?

The answers to all this and more are covered in our insightful interview with Javier below.

Episode #4 About City Gardens

The #EarthOvershootDay means that from tomorrow on, the resources humanity uses will exceed what Earth can regenerate this year. At Zentiva, we do what we can to help to shift the date later in the year and reverse the trend of exhausting our planet, that is why we bring awareness to this day. Aside from concrete sustainability actions to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030, we believe in awareness and the need to educate ourselves and others about which small actions we can take as individuals to contribute.

Our Sustainability Podcast is the result of that, and we bring you a new episode inspired by City Gardens projects. In this conversation with Luca Comino, Creative and Planning Director of I.E.S - Italian Enables of Sustainability we learn that these kinds of initiatives not only help to reduce the negative impact on the environment but also have a positive influence on well-being, reducing stress, improving mental health and enhancing the overall quality of life.

We invite you to join our Sustainability #podcast and learn about:

  • What is Biophilia and why is it important?
  • How we can help the environment in cities?
  • What is the social perspective of having nature in the cities?
