Pre-Loved Podcast: Zero Waste Daniel
Today I’m speaking with Zero Waste Daniel. Zero Waste Daniel is a New York based clothing designer and zero-waste lifestyle pioneer who uses pre-consumer waste sourced from New York City’s garment industry, as well as other hard-to-recycle materials, to create his line of genderless clothing and accessories that send nothing to landfills.
At Zero Waste Daniel, fabric waste is kept at zero. Pattern making techniques, appliqués, tiled mosaics and embellishments absorb one hundred percent of the textile goods that are brought into the make / shop. Each piece from zwd diverts roughly one pound of fabric from hitting landfill.
On this episode we talk about Daniel’s fashion career, zero waste design, ReRoll and his famous patchwork designs, using the teeny-tiniest of scraps, and so much more.
I’m really, really excited for this episode, Daniel was an absolute blast, so let’s dive right into the episode!
