Marci Zaroff is an internationally-recognized ECOlifestyle expert, educator, innovator and serial ecopreneur. Beyond being the founder/CEO of leading sustainable fashion manufacturer MetaWear and the ecofashion lifestyle brands Under The Canopy and Farm to Home, Zaroff recently wrote the book “ECOrenaissance: Co-Creating A Stylish, Sexy & Sustainable World” (Simon & Schuster). Interestingly, “ECOrenaissance” includes a foreword by Horst Rechelbacher — the CEO and founder of AVEDA — who Zaroff has viewed as a mentor.
I had the pleasure of speaking with Zaroff – who was featured in the book “ECO AMAZONS: 20 Women Who Are Transforming the World” and is a Henry Crown Fellow of The Aspen Institute. After chatting with her, you are likely to come away feeling inspired and then wondering if you yourself are doing everything needed to make the world a better place.
The full conversation can be heard on the January 15 edition of the “Paltrocast With Darren Paltrowitz,” as embedded below.
