The Products of Change Summer Sustainability Edit launches online

Products of Change has launched its first magazine to celebrate industry innovation and the advance of the consumer product sectors on their respective sustainability journeys. You can read the magazine online now. A hugely exciting development for Products of Change, the Summer Sustainability Edit is reflective of a consumer products industry in transition, celebrating the efforts and advances made by companies across licensing, apparel, toys, gifting, and more. It is part of the platform’s ongoing efforts to help educate and inspire real, positive, sustainable change. The magazine is available to read online in its digital format, with a limited print run now in production to be issued on recycled, fully FSC-certified paper and printed using vegetable inks. The Products of Change Summer Sustainability Edit has been produced as a keepsake magazine to enable industries to benchmark their sustainability progress. The inaugural issue not only features exclusive news from across those industries, but unmissable content in the shape of big interviews with the dynamic duo behind The United Nations’ Office of Partnerships-backed Conscious Fashion and Lifestyle Network, as well as with Magic Light Pictures and Wow! Stuff as they discuss their sustainability journey with The Gruffalo. We also take a close-up look at the circular economy in practice today. The Summer Sustainability Launch Issue features 40 pages of content, including exclusive research and insights from the children’s market specialists, The Insights Family, as well as observations from Products of Change’s fantastic sector and territory Ambassadors. Rob Hutchins, Products of Change editor and community manager, said: “When talk of launching a Products of Change magazine first started circulating around the team, we knew we wanted it to be one thing above all else; a publication that truly reflected the amazing efforts of the consumer industries so far. “Sending the magazine to the press was a very proud moment; putting your stories in print and telling your journey with sustainability to date is a great feeling – a big congratulations to all those making those positive steps forwards for people and the planet.” The online Products of Change Summer Sustainability Edit is available to read online here. At the heart of Products of Change is the drive to educate and inform positive change by working together as an industry to transition the way in which we operate,” said Helena Mansell-Stopher, ceo and founder of Products of Change. “It’s why I am so proud to launch our first Products of Change sustainability magazine, the ‘Sustainability Edit’, to bring our industries’ stories to life. “This magazine has been a labour of love for our Products of Change editor and community manager, Rob Hutchins. I am so proud to read the amazing stories of the industry, communicate what our community is up to, and share the raft of educational workshops and events we have coming throughout the rest of the year. “The Products of Change Summer Sustainability Edit is an industry first, and one that I am immensely proud to be a part of.” Read the Products of Change Summer Sustainability Edit online by clicking here.

Helena, added: "Please do come join one of our workshops, attend the Sustainability in Licensing Conference in October, complete our education modules, and be part of our second magazine, The Sustainability Edit #2, in October of this year. Let’s see how far we can really reach as an industry in our transition to create the future of licensing."
