Fashion’s impact on nature and regenerative solutions with Juliet Russell, Head of Sustainability at Stella McCartney
Why We Care
In today’s episode, I’m chatting with my friend Juliet Russell, who is the Head of Sustainability at Stella McCartney. I met Juliet a few years ago when we were both working at PANGAIA, and ever since I’ve been learning so much from her on the impact of fashion on the planet, and how we can work towards a less harmful approach to how we produce and consume fashion. We spoke about fashion’s impact on nature, material innovation, and the hope she finds in regenerative agriculture as a solution to both the climate and biodiversity crises. We also touched on how she manages to connect with nature while living in Central London, and what she does to keep her climate anxiety at bay.Want to dive deeper?Learn about regenerative agriculture - I’ve found the Kiss The Ground documentary to be a good place to startLearn about circular business models and circularity within the fashion industry. The Ellen MacArthur Foundation has really good resourcesConsider the impact of what you wear, reflect on all the work and resources that went into the creation of any garment you’re about to purchase (or discard!)Avoid leather and animal products where you can – consider alternatives or second hand Be mindful of your consumption, only buy things that you know you’ll love and wear for a long time, consider second-hand and rentalTake the time to connect with nature in little ways throughout your day eg. go for a walk in the park without your phoneJuliet’s recommendationsThe Power of Now - Eckhart Tolle https://www.wob.com/en-gb/books/eckhart-tolle/power-of-now/9780340733509Little linksJuliet on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/julesarussell/Why We Care on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/whywecarepodcast/Tiphaine on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/tiphainemarie_/If you enjoyed the episode and want to help the podcast, I would be super grateful if you could leave a little review or share it with a friend who might like it.Thank you for caring and sending you lots of love!

I will tell you something about Stella McCartney. Stella is a fashion designer with ethics, a spokesperson for sustainability, a supporter of young designers, and entrepreneur who takes on risks for a cause. On our 30th episode of Ruthie's Table 4, Stella and Ruthie talk about food and memories of childhood, ethical eating, cooking and more. For more than 30 years The River Cafe in London, has been the home-from-home of artists, architects, designers, actors, collectors, writers, activists, and politicians. Michael Caine, Glenn Close, JJ Abrams, Steve McQueen, Victoria and David Beckham, and Lily Allen, are just some of the people who love to call The River Cafe home. On Ruthie's Table 4, Rogers sits down with her customers—who have become friends—to talk about food memories. Table 4 explores how food impacts every aspect of our lives. “Foods is politics, food is cultural, food is how you express love, food is about your heritage, it defines who you and who you want to be,” says Rogers. Each week, Rogers invites her guest to reminisce about family suppers and first dates, what they cook, how they eat when performing, the restaurants they choose, and what food they seek when they need comfort. And to punctuate each episode of Table 4, guests such as Ralph Fiennes, Emily Blunt and Alfonso Cuarón, read their favourite recipe from one of the best-selling River Cafe cookbooks. Table 4 itself, is situated near The River Cafe’s open kitchen, close to the bright pink wood-fired oven and next to the glossy yellow pass, where Ruthie oversees the restaurant. You are invited to take a seat at this intimate table and join the conversation.

This week, Chelsea is sitting down with world-renowned designer and activist Stella McCartney to look at women in the fashion industry – the progress we’ve made toward equality and what needs to happen next.For more than twenty years, Stella McCartney has been running her own label and designing using environmentally-friendly practices and sustainable fabrics. From the very beginning, Stella has not used leather or any animal skin, feathers, or fur in her designs and she’s looked to reduce waste. Now, she is pushing the entire industry toward a higher standard of sustainable practice. And this month, Stella is debuting an outfit for the one and only Minnie Mouse. After almost a century wearing a dress, Minnie will be donning an original, deep blue Stella McCartney pantsuit – marking International Women’s Day and the 30th Anniversary of Disneyland Paris.

Episode 2: Embracing heart and soul at iconic fashion brand Stella McCartney
Nature of Work podcast with Shimrit Janes and Paul Miller
“Nature is in everything that we do, because that’s how the organization has been set up from grass roots.” - Abigail Wilmore, Chief People Officer, Stella McCartney Nature is a profound teacher. From the way gardens grow to how species take their rest when needed, there are many lessons deeply rooted in the structures, patterns and behaviours of the natural world from which organizations can learn as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic and start to create the new story of work for a living age. Over the past 18 months, business resilience has really been put to the test as organizations have been forced to adapt quickly to the changing shape and nature of work as a result of COVID-19 – just as plant and animal species adapt to the ever-changing natural environment. The concept of resilience is not about bouncing back but rather about embracing change, reinventing and building back stronger. We can apply this concept to the new world of work. In this episode, Nature of Work co-authors, Paul Miller and Shimrit Janes, are joined by Abigail Wilmore, Chief People Office at Stella McCartney, and Lucy Colclough, Founder of Work Wild, who share living examples of how they have reinvented traditional organizational structures to be healthy, living systems, using nature as their guide. Drawing on the practices of biomimicry that seek to emulate and take inspiration from the power of nature to solve human problems, this episode provides guidance on: the importance of regular pulse checks; the power of introducing a new language of health, rest and growth to coexist with performance and efficiency; and the concept of heart-centred leadership to understand what brings you to life in the workplace, enabling the transformation from organization to organism.
