Each social, civil and political movement faces a set of oppressive structures it must tear down. For Diandra Marizet and fellow Intersectional Environmentalist team members, this task is their sole purpose.
During a recent episode of the Serenbe Stories podcast, a continuation of their biophilia-centric fourth season, Marizet talked with the hosts about how her early years in fashion lead her to environmental activism.
“I think that one of the things we’ve seen shifting in the fashion space in regards to the environmental movement is that there has been this huge siloing of chit chat about the environment, but then important discussions about fair trade and labor rights,” Marizet began. “But there haven’t been a lot of people really successfully combining the two conversations, and I think that’s what we’re really starting to see now.”
