Breakout Session: Make Your Wardrobe Sustainable, Ethical, and Cute, in 5 Steps
Bio: If you’ve ever felt that pang of where-is-this-made-and-how-does-it-cost-so-little guilt while handing over your credit card to pay for your latest fast-fashion fix, then Alden Wicker is the woman for you.
As the founder and editor-in-chief of EcoCult.com, Wicker has made it her business to suss out the best of sustainable, ethical living: from where to shop for on-trend, guilt-free purchases to where to eat locally grown, healthy food, her site is as beautifully curated as it is knowledgable.
Growing up on 180 acres in North Carolina, Alden fell in love with nature at an early age. Sustainability always made sense; caring for the environment was a matter of course. When she landed in New York, she became acutely aware of the lack of information on living sustainably. How to marry her passion for the city with choices that reflected what she held most dear?
Out of that necessity, EcoCult was born. With sustainable fashion gaining popularity and both designers and consumers taking note, Alden’s site is a one-stop-shop for great advice, gorgeous style, and simple life choices that make a major impact.
The W.E.L.L. Summit is so excited to welcome Alden Wicker as she leads her breakout session attendees through the different aspects of ethical fashion and how to transition your closet to a sustainable, ethical wardrobe so you can feel—and look!—eco chic.
