Nancy's Bookshelf: Maxine Bédat & Dave Veith #632
Maxine Bédat is the founder and director of New Standard Institute, a think-and-do tank dedicated to turning the industry into a force for good.
She is a former lawyer and the co-founder of the ethical fashion brand Zady. She is an ambassador at the Rainforest Alliance and has spoken at the World Economic Forum, the United Nations, and the Clinton Global Initiative.
In Unraveled, entrepreneur, researcher, and advocate Maxine Bédat follows the life of an American icon–a pair of jeans–to reveal what really happens to give us our clothes. We visit a Texas cotton farm figuring out how to thrive without relying on fertilizers that poison the earth.
Also, Dave Veith's "The Haunted Refrigerator: In," series opener centers on the machinations of a turbulent family.
A nine-year-old Theo Schism squeezes himself into a refrigerator and shuts the door in 1953.
