Season 2, Episode 17: Creating a Fashionable Solution from Pollution with Abby Brown of H2OM
Abby Brown was walking along the beautiful beaches of San Diego when she saw there was more trash than she could carry in her own two hands. In that moment, Abby felt called to make a difference but what could she do as one person?
Abby combined her background as a yoga instructor, event coordinator, marketer and training in design + merchandising to launch H2OM, a sustainable activewear brand made from 100% recycled materials, including post-consumer plastic bottles and waste.
In this week’s episode, Marta and Abby chat about:
- the process of finding the right fabric for H2OM
- how Abby landed on the sealife designs + finding the right fit for every size
- the lasting value of collaboration
- how self-care as a leader is essential to building a sustainable brand
- being resilient and asking for support as an entrepreneur
