About this Episode

Did you see this viral video of an art installation made out of fabric scraps found in an abandoned factory in Southeast Asia. In the video, these renegade artists put together scenes of things you would find in nature, like a tornado, out of clothing scraps that had been abandoned over a decade previously.

Along with the infamous waste photographer Von Wong, one of the organizers for the Clothing the Loop project is Laura François, a contributor to the Huffington Post and speaker at TEDx Penang Road. Originally from Canada, Laura believes that creating a positive impact in the fashion industry is directly linked to creating lasting change on human rights and environmental issues.
