Diana Believes That Brands Should Be a Force for Good
And she should know. Diana began cutting her sustainability teeth when Jane Goodall asked her a question that would shape her career. Jane asked, “Can you find me a paper mill that has no negative impact on the planet, pays its workers fair wages, provides safe working conditions, and sources fiber responsibly?”
Sure, that sounds easy today, but it was in 1999.
