Trend alert! Upcycled fashion is not just for hardcore environmentalists or bohemian fashionistas anymore. It's in vogue, popping up everywhere from the Depop marketplace to startups like Zero Waste Daniel. Large brands like Patagonia and Eileen Fisher are also using scraps of fabric waste to create chic collections that will convince anyone to forget about buying new clothes.

But can upcycling go mainstream? That's the question Patagonia has been wrestling with over the past 18 months. It is now efficiently upcycling at scale, diverting tons of fabric from landfills and creating a lucrative source of revenue. Patagonia is now paving the way for other brands to follow its lead. Will they? I sure hope so. Read the full story here.

Companies cut off GOP lawmakers: What you need to know
A handful of big companies have begun to come out publicly to announce they will suspend donations to any of the 147 GOP members of Congress who opposed certifying the election for President-elect Joe Biden last Wednesday.
The move comes after a group of pro-Trump insurrectionists violently stormed the Capitol Building in an attempt to thwart the counting of the electoral votes. 
Marriott International, Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, JPMorgan Chase, and Citigroup are among the large companies that have said they’ll suspend donations. 
Last week’s failed insurrection continues to force companies to rethink their relationship with Trump and his enablers. Since it happened, a number of online platforms have suspended Trump’s accounts.
