Is Sustainability A Luxury Value? - DE05



Join Dr. Tom & Mr. Mike AKA “Audio Velvet” as they tackle the discussion on the recent G7 summit where 32 fashion companies (like Chanel & Ralph Lauren) announced a signing of the Fashion Pact which is "a non-legally binding agreement to combat greenhouse gasses and emphasize sustainability in the industry". Is it good? Is it too late? Regardless of what side of the fence you're on, it's great to see companies with large bankrolls making positive sustainable decisions. Join us on the discussion as we dive deep on this very positive news. 

On episode 05 we discuss:

  • The juxtaposition of Sustainable Luxury
  • Thoughts on the G7 summit
  • Thoughts on our “responsibility to being green”
  • Where “sustainable responsibility” starts
  • Thoughts on why some people chronically litter
  • How the social media explosion has impacted sustainability

  • Have we reached the tipping point on the point of no return for sustaining the earth’s natural ecosystem? (22mins in)
  • Consumerism vs Capitalism
  • Is it trendy to be sustainable?

    Today Dr. Tom and Mike AKA "Audio Velvet" take a deep dive into the social phenomenon of The "Mama's Boy" label. Is it positive? Is it negative? Well, that depends really on how you look at it. Is salt bad? If you sprinkle too much on your favorite dish, sure it might make the taste intolerable and it will certainly pose a negative risk to your health. But... just the right amount? Yep... now we're in business. Here at Dapper Effects, we believe in this concept that every woman secretly wants a man with a little "Mama's Boy" in him. We also don't take that phrase lightly because of how much respect and love we hold for all the amazing women out there. We wouldn't be the kind of men we are today without the love of some incredible sacrifices made and love given by our moms. With Mother's day just passing, let this podcast be a homage to all the amazing mothers and mother's to be and mother's who are now gone. We love you, we support you and we certainly have just a little bit of "Mama's Boy" in us to share with the rest of the world.
