Ethical Denim with James Bartle from Outland Denim
My next guest was recommended to me by another guest in the act of paying it forward. Through B corp connections I am finding a tribe of pioneers paving the way for others and I am constantly amazed and awe of their innovation and determination to make collective change on the planet.
James Bartle is the Founding CEO of Outland Denim, the Queensland People’s Brand taking the world by storm. Their mission is to create denim to end poverty, offering sustainable employment and training opportunities to women who have experienced exploitation. Outland Denim is clear on its mission of empowerment, sustainability and transparency that makes a difference to communities, economies and the environment.
Outland Denim has experienced blistering growth since Meghan Markle wore their brand during a visit to Australia and now welcomes other brands to adopt and use their manufacturing facilities to spread their ripples of change even further. I was super excited to get the opportunity to speak to James in a very heartwarming conversation that will inspire you to reconsider your clothing choices.
