Clubhouse is a new social media app growing fast

Products of Change, Behind the Brands and Aqua & Rock join the Clubhouse revolution with weekly chats on sustainable fashion. Clubhouse is a new drop-in audio chat app. Think Zoom, but now with even less need to get changed out of pyjamas! Users can listen to conversations, interviews and discussions and take part – or not. Once you join the app (which you need to be invited to by an existing user) you can browse the conversations taking place and choose a ‘room’ to join. It’s a bit like a conference call with most users listening and a few talking. Had enough of a chat? Then leave the room and find another one. The app is popular with celebrities and big-name CEOs, with Elon Musk, Kevin Hart, Ashton Kutcher and Kanye West all members. Products of Change, Behind the Brands and Aqua & Rock co-host a sustainable fashion room on Clubhouse every Wednesday at 3.45pm (GMT). “This is our third week running the room and will host this conversation once a week,” says Helena Mansell-Stopher, founder of Products of Change. “We have had people from all around the world attending our chats and I have learnt a great deal from these conversations since we have been hosting the room.”
