What Goes Around Comes Around: The Circular Economy & Community w/ Beth, Founder of Carma Clothing
On the first episode of 2021, we talk all things circular economy with Beth, founder of growing community, Carma Clothing.
Carma is on a mission to change the way we think about our clothes, so we can feel better wearing them.
Carma started out of the frustration of the feeling of having nothing to wear, whilst having a wardrobe full of clothes. Beth quickly figured out that this was a problem many of us have. "We buy too much, clear out way too little and very rarely use all of the items we have."
If you've decluttered your wardrobe as part of your New Year's Resolution, then this episode is for you! There are several ways to make sure your clothes end up being re-loved, especially if you hardly wore them.

12. One Stitch at a Time: Mending Fashion and Feminism w/ Josephine Philips, founder of Sojo App35:00We're back with our last guest feature of the season and some exciting news! Josephine Philips is the founder of Sojo, 'the Deliveroo of clothing alterations & repairs', an app and pick-up/delivery service that connects customers to local Seamster businesses so that people could get their clothes altered or repaired with a few simple clicks! Josephine built Sojo from a place of personal frustration surrounding an oppressive fast-fashion system and her inability to sew. She was continuously falling in love with second-hand clothes that weren’t her size, but without having a convenient way to get them altered, she created Sojo to simplify the process. By promoting a circular model, she hopes that it will help people in their quest for a sustainable wardrobe. Join us as we speak with Josephine about her entrepreneurial journey, building a startup in lockdown, feminism & fast fashion, and what the future holds for Sojo!To learn more about Josephine and Sojo, make sure you're following them on Instagram and check out their website!www.instagram.com/sojo_appsojoapp.co.ukwww.instagram.com/josephine__philipsAs always, to join the conversation use the hashtag #TheFITPodcast and join the tribe over on Instagram and Twitter @efitterapp
