MORGAN HAMEL OF THE GARMENT LIFE
When you think of ethics, you don’t necessarily think style. But bringing those things together is exactly what Morgan Hamel does – she has created a community around the idea of living a bigger life by owning fewer better things. And it has caught on.
Morgan is an ethicist, and founder of The Garment – a company whose mission is to connect women and responsible brands. She has a goal to connect women and 1000 responsibly made garments in 2017, and as of the moment when this bio is being written, she’s hovering around 700.
In addition to her ethical fashion venture, Morgan has two small girls, in whom she delights, and works part time in the ethics office of a large company. She’s constantly ramping up and dialing back her engagement with each of those things in an effort to find a good mix, and live life just a little more slowly.
