A presentation at the 'Sometimes You Just Have To Do It Yourself' Design Conference, held at Virgina Commonwealth University Qatar in March 2007. The presentation discusses the need for designers to be pioneers and innovators and how Rebecca Earley puts the environment first in her designs. The impact of the textile industry on the environment and overconsumption and unethical production are examined. Making decisions at the very beginning of design can help produce ethical and environmentally sound products.
