At Yaytrade, we love to celebrate changemakers. The ‘Sustainable Rebel of the Month’ award is each month handed out to someone who challenges the industry, stands up- and fights for the climate and social justice, and also inspires others to do the same. This month, the Sustainable Rebel Award goes to: Johanna Leymann.

About: Lecturer, author, moderator, and consultant working with slow fashion and slow business. Runs the social media account @johannaleymann.se, the podcast Slowfashionpodden, and is co-founder of Klimatklubben.

Hey Johanna! Congratulations on being named Yaytrade’s Sustainable Rebel of the Month. Thank you as well for being a changemaker, for raising awareness, and for making better choices for the environment.
Thank you, I am very pleased to receive this award! My commitment to sustainability is extensive and second hand is a major part of it – a solution for how to meet the challenge of living more sustainably.

Why did you get involved with sustainable fashion?
I’ve always been interested in issues of justice and after graduation I started to get involved in – among other things – the Red Cross Youth Association, with a focus on sustainable development and fair trade. Since then I have been involved with nonprofits who tackle these issues in various ways.
