Fostering a sustainable fashion movement in Latin America
Hecho X Nosotros (HXN) is fostering a sustainable fashion movement by establishing global mechanisms to enable rural Andean producers full and consistent access to global markets, while also shifting mindsets in the fashion industry.
The fashion industry lacks transparency and a network of committed actors around the world- which results in factories with modern day slavery, child labor, unsafe working conditions, and low salaries. The sector lacks reliable, transparent certification processes to enable sustainable businesses and entrepreneurs to compete against mainstream corporations. While this happens, the consumers are not necessarily aware of the social and environmental impact of the brands they are buying.
The fashion industry can unite more holistically to develop and implement a sustainability plan that protects people and the environment. Their goal at HXN is to create a sustainability paradigm for the fashion industry by creating a platform that is accessible and inclusive.
It´s a pleasure and honor to be able to be Strategic partner with “Animana & Hecho por nosotros”. I have been facilitator and coach in many programs along my career in IKEA since 1998, as I deeply believe that the main role of a leader is to develop people around you and share your knowledge and experiences.
