Only a radical change in the way we use our resources, we produce and consume textiles can bring a substantial system disruption.
Green Fashion Tours started as an experiment in 2015. At the beginning we wanted to find out what would happen, if we offered a sustainable fashion map to all the people telling us: I would buy more sustainably, if I knew where!
We soon realised that a Green Fashion Tour has more potential than just showing where to buy sustainably: It has the power to generate emotions and positively inspire personal believes.
Our mission is to forward a more conscious way of consuming fashion while making visible the stories and philosophies of the local sustainability professionals. Because there is a revolution going on and we want to inspire you to become part of it.
These are our believes:
1. We believe in fashion as a driving force for change. We are strongly convinced that this industry has the potential to become a revolutionary agent for a more sustainable way of living, consuming & producing.
2. We believe that people can be empowered through the emotional intensity of human connection. The direct contact to the fashion game-changers, to their challenges and to their values connects the tour participant to a system of new purposes.
3. We believe in transformative experiences instead of educative experiences. We lead people in a journey of self-empowerment and exchange. Therefore the participants are active part of this process and we learn from them, too.
4. We understand sustainability as a significant aspect of our cultures, sciences and economies. Therefore we believe that all people working in sustainable projects should get fairly paid and supported in the further development of their knowledge.
5. We believe in innovation, circularity & reduction. Only a radical change in the way we use our resources, we produce and consume textiles can bring a substantial system disruption.
6. We believe in the power of synergies and collaborations between businesses. Cooperation, co-design and teamwork are the tools making our cultural revolution strong and unbreakable.
7. We believe that the change starts with you and you have an enormous influence on your personal environment. Each of our individual decisions is a significant clean drop in this ocean full of plastic waste and misinformation.
