Better Magazine: What are you most excited about working within Manufy? 

Ruben: I’m Really looking forward to helping manufacturers and brands give them a clearer path towards their sustainability goals, and showing them that with even little effort they are able to make a big long term impact.


BM: How did sustainability become a part of your life?

R: I went to a school called UWC, where I was taught about all the implications and consequences of the world economy, and heard local stories from students from all over the world. This triggered me to become more aware of my actions and act more responsibly. And so it has become my ambition to revolutionize the fashion industry to become more sustainable.


BM: What is your vision on the actual fashion industry? 

R: With more transparency, a lot of inefficiencies and unsustainable practises will be highlighted and can be fixed. The end goal is to close the circular loop in the textile industry, creating higher quality clothes and re-using these resources many times.

BM: What is a must follow fashion brand? 

R: Mud jeans & Ecoalf

BM: What core message would you want to share with the Manufy community? 

R: Ask your favorite brands where and how your clothes are made! And try to be critical of your own purchases.
