April 19, 201760 min
I reached out to Shannon Lohr (@Shannonlw) after watching the Minimalism documentary on Netflix. No doubt, she'll have you thinking a little differently when it comes to what's in your closet! AS THE FOUNDER AND CEO OF FACTORY45, SHANNON (WHITEHEAD) LOHR WORKS WITH IDEA-STAGE ENTREPRENEURS TO LAUNCH CLOTHING COMPANIES THAT ARE ETHICALLY AND SUSTAINABLY MADE IN THE USA. Shannon got her start in 2010 when she co-founded {r}evolution apparel, a sustainable clothing company for female travelers and minimalists that was featured in The New York Times, Forbes.com and Yahoo! News. To date, Shannon has worked with over 150 entrepreneurs in the sustainable fashion space, many of whom have gone on to launch some of the most transparent supply chains in the fashion industry. Shannon is a strong advocate for increasing supply chain transparency through sourcing, localization and storytelling. She’s been named a thought leader for the future of fashion by Ecouterre and Triple Pundit, and she writes frequently about conscious consumerism and the intersection of fashion and environmentalism.
