Episode 56: The Philosophy of Slow Fashion and Even Slower Living

March 11, 2020

You never really arrive...” was one of the most impactful statements from my podcast interview with Em & Olly, the co-founders of swimwear brand Raw x Salt. They join me from Coffs Harbour, Australia to talk about sustainability, motherhood and their definition of a beautiful mess. We dig into the complexities and joys of female partnerships, how they finally made the leap to entrepreneurship and their inspiration to do better for the ocean through their slow fashion philosophy. Olly is originally from Russia but saw the devastating effects of waste while working in the airline industry, while Em worked directly in fashion and physically had allergic reactions to chemicals while unpacking boxes of merchandise.

From her research on the Bagua Massacre in Peru to restricted water resources in India, she’s seen a little bit of everything from traveling to some of the most remote jungles around the world. Her observation? It seems most water wars are actually about oil, and how oil contaminates cherished water resources. Trace is the founder of Surf Sisters for Science, a sisterhood of surfers, scientists and adventurers who seek to defend water, waves and the communities that are defined by them against contamination and erasure. “We will resist the erasure of the human experience of climate change by reporting stories of climate impact that would otherwise be unheard, and by increasing open access climate data.”
