The Library Will Be Closed Today, Friday, December 23rd, Due to the Inclement Weather
Lisa Goldsand will explore the effects of the apparel industry on climate change and show how we can make eco-friendly fashion choices that have both a local and global impact.
Apparel and footwear production make up approximately 10% of annual greenhouse gas emissions. With global population growth and an expected corresponding increase in consumers with disposable income, the percent contribution to global warming attributed to the fashion industry will continue to increase. Lisa Goldsand will discuss near and long term solutions involving technology and innovation, investment, and public / private partnership trends. She will also discuss the most meaningful actions which we as citizens and community members can take at a local and global level to support a shift toward more sustainable fashion. Celebrate Earth Day by learning about how we can make our wardrobes and closets more sustainable.
Lisa Goldsand has held senior leadership positions in the apparel industry, most recently with Abercrombie & Fitch, and has 30 years of experience in manufacturing, sourcing, operations, and change management.
She has lived and worked in Central America and in Asia, and has supported the manufacturing operations of several international companies in her career. Lisa’s ‘on the ground’ experience includes end-to-end product development and supply chain management of apparel and personal care products. She understands how the industry operates, but is also passionate about the need to adapt to a more circular model to reduce its impact on climate change and natural resource consumption.
Lisa is now piloting localized, repeatable projects which advance sustainability and circularity to address textile waste. Her company is called Circular Thrift LLC.
Lisa lives with her family in Bexley, OH, where she serves as secretary of the Environmental and Sustainability Action Committee of her municipality.
