Episode 7: The Future of Sustainable Fashion with Wardrobe

How often do you wear every item in your wardrobe? Chances are, not often. In fact, it's a good guess most of us have items still holding onto their tags. This week on You Should Know This, I sit down with Adarsh Alphons, the founder and CEO of Wardrobe, a peer-to-peer sustainable rental marketplace. Between breaking down how Wardrobe works, how it's disrupting their industry, and the importance that dry cleaners play in the whole thing, Adarsh explains the power of looking at issues with a different perspective.
