Hello, my name is Taryn Hipwell and I am a known for many many things. Top of the list is Thought Leader and Consumer Engagement Specialist. Personally, I am a nerd about sustainable fashion because I'm allergic to everything that sucks about chemicals in fabric.
Taryn is the Founder of Beyond the Label
Beyond the Label (BtL) started as a partnership between EcoDivas LLC and TEDxLA to educate Angelenos about the true health, social and environmental cost of their fashion purchases. BtL is now a charitable organization that addresses the question “What's in my tee?” to encourage shoppers to consider what their T-shirt is made of, and how it affects themselves, the workers, and the world.
