FASHION + PLASTIC?

In this weeks session we talked about two things. Interviews and about out blogposts on ethical fashion. Some people in our group wrote about how some companies uses plastic in their garments, such a G-star Raw who uses recycled plastic from the ocean, and Levi's also uses recycled water bottles in their jeans. 

I've never heard about this before, and I found it quite interesting how plastic (which is something I don't really associate with fashion, but the kitchen) could be used in a sustainable way in the fashion industry. Over 1 million plastic bottles are used every 20 minute in the US, and Levi's Waste <Less uses 8 bottles to make one pair of jeans. How cool is that?

And for the interviews bit. We learned about what to do, and what not do to. I've always found interviews a bit hard, but after today I'm quite confident after today's lesson. We had a mock interview with all the other student, similar to "speed dating", where we had 2 minutes and then had to go to the next person. It was really fun and mentally tiring. It's like having to sell yourself in 2 minutes, and then moving on trying to do it 9 times.
