Today, the fashion industry is the 2nd most polluting industry after oil. Consumerism is on it's highest and the “take, make, use, throw” economic model thrives. So what's the problem? Growing landfills, oceans full of plastics and toxins in our food and drink water, just to name a few. Environmental sustainability is a very complex matter, and this is why sharing knowledge is key.
So, if you're interested in making a difference, but don't know where to start, you've come to the right place.

KNOWLEDGE IS FOR SHARING
As a guest lecturer and senior consultant in the student incubator at VIA Design in Herning, Denmark, Stine has experienced first-hand how sharing her story has influenced students to seek alternative and green approaches to fashion, textile and furniture design rather than going the conventional way. She loves to talk about why she started SANDERMANN, including the ups and downs, and how she sees the future for her business and the industry in general. Furthermore she has co-hosted and facilited a series of succesful workshops at VIA Design called "Sustainable Innovation Traineeship", giving students from very different backgrounds the tools to think green and circular when developing new ideas. The workshop series encouraged the students to come up with innovative business models, test them and finally pitch about them.
