Dan Pontarlier is a fashion activist. Up to 2015, Dan had been working as a consultant in sustainability and marketing for the hospitality industry for several years when he decided to found his blog to write about sustainability in tourism and fashion. The impact was far more important than he had ever imagined. By mixing his passion for fashion and his knowledge in sustainability, the decision to add this field to his belt was quickly made.
Dan holds a BBA in Tourism, an MBA in Hotel Management and an MBA in Tourism, Sustainability & ICT. Currently, Dan is the founder of DP the label (@dp.the.label), co-founder of the European Sustainable Hospitality Club (@ESHClub) and author of the recently published book ‘From Trash to Runway’ (@fromtrashtorunway).
His main motivations in joining Remake as an ambassador is to increase awareness with his community about sustainability in the fashion industry and, in particular, about the positive impact of up-cycling clothes and other materials.
“I #wearmyvalues the same way I wear my clothes: clean, guilt-free, consciously, with a positive impact and with tones of awareness. I am here to foster creativity and show that everyone can go zero waste or nearby. Spoiler alert: the journey is amazing!”
