Is That A Plastic Bag You Are Wearing? | Kelly Drennan | TEDxCorktown

What are you wearing? Fast fashion and online shopping are major contributors to our landfills. Sustainable fashion expert Kelly Drennan designs a talk about why your own closet hold the answer to helping slow climate change. From buttons to bargains, from rags to returns, those skinny jeans are more than just today’s fashion statement. Kelly founded Fashion Takes Action out of her desire to create a better, more sustainable future for her two daughters. Determined to making fashion circular, Kelly convenes the Ontario Textile Diversion Collaborative (OTDC), with more than 30 stakeholders committed to increasing textile diversion, while unlocking local solutions for reuse and recycling. Kelly is also a member of the City of Toronto’s Circular Economy Working Group and their Fashion Industry Advisory Panel. Most recently, Kelly has taken on the role of chairing a task force and committee to develop a circular fashion standard for Canada, with the Canadian Standards Association. Kelly also produces the annual WEAR conference, and is a sought after consultant for fashion designers and brands looking to embrace CSR and sustainability. In 2017 Kelly was recognized as a Canadian environmental leader with the esteemed Clean 50 Award for her work in Education & Awareness, and is the first fashion industry recipient. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
