Meet Chloe Songer, founder of Thousand Fell – more than just a manufacturer of foot wear, but a leader in the movement to build a circular economy. Motivated by the enormous waste in the fashion industry and a desire to make a difference, Chloe took it upon herself to learn everything she could about the production process. She was introduced to manufacturing working for the Alexander Wang Group in China and later moved to Gap where she got an education in supply chain.
Chloe’s experience in China empowered her vision to build her own brand utilizing sustainable materials. Currently, 2.4 billion pairs of sneakers are sold in the U.S. every year and 300 million pairs go straight to a landfill within their first year. Today, the fashion industry is the poster child for change with entrepreneurs like Chloe leading the way to make better products, eliminate waste, and create a safer environment.
For Chloe – she gets to practice the best advice she ever got — “to be the person who brings people together.” Hear more about Chloe’s journey on the WAM Podcast.
