WEBINAR: How to be an Effective Sustainability Professional - A Conversation with Wrangler's Director of Sustainability
Tuesday, October 24th, 2017 at 12:00 p.m. PT / 3:00 p.m. ET
Early this year, Wrangler launched a farmer engagement platform focused on soil health practices for cotton growers, the number one material input for their denim product. The result is increased resiliency to drought, reduced pest pressure and increased carbon sequestration in soils.
Join us as we talk to Roian Atwood, Wrangler's Director of Sustainability, about what made this initiative successful and the tips, tricks, and techniques Roian has developed for being an effective sustainability professional. The conversation will be moderated by Sarah Elaine Lewis, Senior Director of Innovation with The Sustainability Consortium, and will include an audience Q&A. Sign up now!

Thank-You to ISSP's Summer Intern
As summer draws to a close, we reluctantly bid farewell to our wonderful summer intern, Jill Howard (pictured on the left with ISSP Executive Director Maureen Hart), who is returning to the University of New Hampshire for her senior year where she is working on a BS in Business Administration in Social Innovation and Enterprise. Jill was a great help organizing the ISSP Volunteer program to run more smoothly. We will miss her great ideas and hard work but know that she will continue with more direct involvement in sustainability efforts at UNH where she is actively involved in the Trash2Treasure campaign on campus.
