“Do not go gentle into that good night, rage, rage against the dying of the light.” ✨

Meet Lavanya, our fourth wildflower and the co- founder of @aboutsuss . She also works at a start-up called ” @goodbusinesslab ” where she leads the partnerships, funding, and communications related effort. Her tryst with sustainability was accidental she tells us, however says “I think my previous actions added up to it”🌿. “I grew up in rural/remote parts of India, primarily due to the nature of my father’s job. Often a birthday or ‘free time’ during holidays was spent volunteering. This naturally spurred an interest in the development sector in me. My development economics classes were the ones I enjoyed the most during my time at Lady Shri Ram College. The time I spent living and working on various governance, gender, and education issues in village Soda in college, as part of a student-run NGO I co-founded – @asmatngo – shaped my world views. Studying development economics for my Masters seemed like a next natural step. While at Yale, the idea that there is so much scope for the work I am interested in back home gripped me. So, after graduating I found myself managing the research portfolio of a bunch of development economists. Their focus was to explore how firms in the garment manufacturing space in developing countries can be a vehicle of socio-economic development. This was when I first learnt about the social sustainability side of the garment industry.” 🍃

“Since we’ve started, several of our community members have connected and done different projects together – and that’s exactly what we need. There’s a lot already happening, but unless different stakeholders work together, we really can’t move the needle on a more sustainable industry. This is one of the things I love about what SUSS is doing – bringing people together to work towards shared goals. Ten months with SUSS has made me realise that collaboration and community building is essential to make a difference,” 🏝

“SUSS is the first-of-its-kind community as it focuses on the sustainable fashion movement in India. While most of the impact and opportunity around the fashion industry lies in manufacturing and fast-growing nations like India, most of the conversation around sustainability is driven by developed countries. SUSS, as was intended, is changing this narrative and building a homegrown movement by bringing together Indian change-makers.” 🌴 “Lavanya and I met through work. The Good Business Lab, which was set-up by Shahi, evaluates the social and business impact of the worker-facing programs that we run. A couple of months after I launched SUSS, Lavanya started helping me out and eventually become my partner” 🌸

Our third wildflower spirit, Gauri is the co-founder of one of Delhi’s first community focused on sustainable fashion SUSS @aboutsuss and also works with an apparel manufacturer on their sustainability strategy and communications. Her journey with sustainability began while she was in college when she interned with a social responsibility consultancy. Ironically the rana plaza tragedy occurred around the same time she tells us “I remember watching videos and reading about this incident over and over again because I couldn’t believe that something like this had happened. I had limited knowledge of how our clothes are made and in what conditions. As I dug deeper into business sustainability as a bigger topic, I was convinced that business has a massive role to play in creating a more socially and environmentally secure world.” Ever since this journey has become not only her day job but her passion. She along with her co-founder Lavanya, began @aboutsuss 10 months ago, as a facebook group, and today close to 500 people are part of this beautiful community. #SuiisShe #Sheisawildflower
