“After seeing this movie it’s a reminder of how much it takes to have a tomato on a plate“ says fashion designer Alber Elbaz after the screening of Susan Rockefeller’s movie “Food for Thought Food for Life” at a very special breakfast hosted on avenue Montaigne by investment bankers and philanthropists Karine and Ariel Ohana of Ohana & Co…
Susan Rockefeller, is just one of those people that we love to love! She is aiming to make this world a better place – using her creativity and story telling talents, she creates films that help people think differently about what they eat and to make changes that positively impact health, the environment and society. Her organisation ‘Protect What is Precious‘ is about building a sustainable future by collaborating with people, organisations and causes that are dedicated to rest, rejuvenation and re-imagining a better world.
“When you think about fashion or cosmetics it’s all comes from a seed (“we all come from a seed!” intervened Elbaz) , whether it’s cotton or leather – it’s about waking people up to that fact! It is really part of the process and having more awareness” says Rockefeller.
Elbaz remarked that in the fashion industry the word “soil” doesn’t pop up very often – “every time I hear it, I think of ‘soul.’ And I think the two words together have the same meaning.”
Rockefeller’s hope is that all influencers out there will think about ways to innovate whether it’s cosmetics, fashion, or agriculture and generally on the choices one makes each day – that people will start thinking about how to be inventive!
Even Karine Ohana shared that many investors are now looking to invest in innovative ethical labels both in fashion and cosmetics…
Telling powerful stories – who made it and what their intention was and where it came from are the things people will start wanting to know.
Here’s to a new trend be it in food, fashion or finance, let’s make it about a healthy choice !
Please grab yourselves a cup of (organic) tea and take 20 minutes to watch Susan Rockefeller’s very powerful film Food For Thought Food for Life
