Queen of Raw | Stephanie Benedetto

The fashion industry has a waste problem. In addition to being one of the worst polluters of our world’s waters, this industry sends billions of dollars worth of unused textiles to landfill each year. Now, Stephanie Benedetto is doing something about it. Stephanie Benedetto is the founder of Queen of Raw, a marketplace to buy and sell sustainable and deadstock fabrics and textiles. By cataloguing and repurposing these fabrics that would otherwise go to landfill, Stephanie is creating a model of integrity and sustainability in the supply chain for the fashion industry and beyond. (34m 47s)
