The story of Emma and Emiliana – ‘Knickers to that!’
The Story of Emiliana has now been written by Emma for a chapter entitled ‘Knickers to that!’, which is featured in the soon to be published book “Stories of the Great Turning”. The book is introduced by the wonderful eco-activist Joanna Macy, and contains a wonderful collection of true stories, detailing inspiring, practical grassroots approaches to Sustainability from all over the world that are contributing to the ‘Great Turning’. Emma’s story is one of a transition from ‘uptown’ girl, living the highlife and working as a Lingerie Designer in Hong Kong and China; then turning her back on that life, and turning from ‘uptown’ into ‘upcycler’ after experiencing first hand the damaging effects that Capitalism, conspicuous consumerism and neo-liberal globalisation have on people and the environment.
Stories of the Great Turning will be published in April 2013. Email Emma for info or for a press release: firstname.lastname@example.org
