BetterPod: Brett Staniland goes from Love Island to sustainable fashion activist

Brett Staniland campaigns against fast fashion – so why did he appear on Love Island? Find out in this week’s BetterPod.

When he appeared on Love Island last year, Brett Staniland was shocked at the amount of fast fashion available to contestants. A campaigner for sustainable fashion, he worried about the environmental impact and the working conditions that lay behind those cheap clothes.

Responding to these concerns, this year, the show has swapped their fast fashion sponsor for pre-loved clothes from eBay.

On today’s BetterPod, Staniland explains how dressing ethically can be both fun and affordable. He also discusses his own journey into activism, why he protested against fellow Love Islander Molly-Mae’s catwalk show, and how all of us can make more ethically sound fashion choices.

BetterPod is brought to you by The Big Issue’s Future Generations team. Through the Future Generations team, we offer a platform for exciting young journalists from underrepresented backgrounds to address the biggest issues facing us today.
