Blue Cast by Tencel, a podcast series created on Carved in Blue by the Tencel denim team sharing in-depth talks to the denim community at large, and the Fashion Impact Fund, a charitable fund supporting women changemakers to accelerate the fashion industry’s transition to an ecosystem that values people and planet, have collaborated on a special edition four-part podcast series named ‘Circularity Solutionist’ to raise the awareness of women’s involvement in driving systems change to reduce, reuse and recycle.

The series follows the launch of Solutionist in March 2022 which supported the theme of Women’s History Month ‘Providing Healing, Promoting Hope’. Each week for the month of October, Circularity Solutionist will spotlight the innovative solutions led by women advocating for a new paradigm in the fashion sector – one that leads towards a fair and resilient world. 

Circularity Solutionist will feature women in the fashion and denim industry who are making an impact in forging a new path, those who are connecting their life’s work to planet, people and prosperity and giving us hope towards a positive change. The series will highlight Brittany Dickinson from Goodwill, Constanza Gomez from Sortile, Estefanía Angel Villanueva from Banqu and Nin Castle from Reverse Resources.

Tricia Carey, Director of Global Business Development, Lenzing, comments: “The textile and fashion industry is poised for an evolution which is led by determined and curious leaders around the world.  The women interviewed in the Circularity Solutionist podcast represent the spirit and drive to impact circular solutions while keeping people in the centre of this change.  It was inspiring to speak with each person and learn their inner motivation.”

Kerry Bannigan, Executive Director, Fashion Impact Fund, adds: “Our continued partnership With Blue Cast by Tencel drives our mission to support content that centres the voices and amplifies the leadership of women transforming fashion for people and planet. The featured women in this series are committed to advancing fashion initiatives that reimagine the future with solutions for a sustainable world.”
