This workshop is designed to bring awareness to the impact we have on the planet, and explore the idea of restoring our roots and rebuilding our relationship with mother nature. We will discuss the benefits and effects businesses have on our society and the planet. Through this workshop you will gain an understanding of your position on the business model, and its impact on the chain reaction. Changing small aspects of one’s lifestyle impacts society on a larger scale. In order to make change and inspire flexibility we must propose practical action steps for individuals to lessen their effect on the disparities that come from mass production and consumption of products. Anyone can benefit from this workshop. Keywords: Sustainability, Entrepreneurship, Fashion, Wholesomeness
