"Unraveled: The Life And Death Of A Garment" By Maxine Bedat
Maxine Bédat is the founder and director of New Standard Institute, a think-and-do tank dedicated to turning industry into a force for good. She is a former lawyer and the cofounder of ethical fashion brand Zady. She is an ambassador at the Rainforest Alliance and has spoken at the World Economic Forum, the United Nations, and the Clinton Global Initiative.
In her new book, "Unraveled: The Life and Death of a Garment," she follows the life of an American icon--a pair of jeans--to reveal what really happens to give us our clothes. "Unraveled" is not just the story of a pair of pants, but also the story of our global economy and our role in it.
