Today I’m speaking with Cayla O’Connell Davis, the co-founder and CEO of Knickey, an organic cotton intimates company with the first ever intimates recycling program. Working in the world of secondhand, I’m asked all the time about underwear -- we don’t thrift it, we shouldn’t donate it, so what are we to do?
Knickey wants to help solve those problems. In addition to their GOTS and Fair Trade certification, and their company’s carbon neutrality, they developed a first-of-its-kind recycling program to solve an industry-wide fashion problem of old underwear piling up in landfills.
In this episode we’re going to talk about textile recycling, sustainability in the intimates industry, high-value recycling solutions, innovation and forward progress, and so much more!
I’m really, really excited for this episode, so let’s dive right in!
