Hi Reddit! I'm Joey Zwillinger, co-founder and co-CEO of Allbirds here today to discuss why we need to challenge the corporate sustainability status quo. Ask me anything!
My co-founder and I started Allbirds in 2016 to help contribute to the fight against climate change (you can read more about that here: https://www.allbirds.com/pages/sustainable-practices). You might be wondering though – can a brand like ours really make a big enough impact? Well, the short answer is no. The long answer is yes, but only if we can get the entire private sector to take sustainability as seriously as its bottom line. So let’s talk about it!
As with other AMAs, I’ll look to the community to select which questions to answer through upvotes. Once they’ve been chosen, I will answer as many of them as I can over our hour-and-a-half together - starting at 11:30AM PST.
Excited to get started. Please check back for more updates as we go!
EDIT: This has been awesome! I have to run soon, so get your questions in the next 5 mins and I'll try to get to them!
EDIT: Really great questions, Reddit. Thanks for having me! Hope to come back again sometime.
