Biaggi introduces fashion sustainability legislation, seeks to hold NY fashion industry accountable


A piece of legislation that would make New York a global leader in holding the fashion industry accountable for its impact on the planet was introduced last month by a Bronx state senator.

On Jan. 7, state Sen. Alessandra Biaggi, a Progressive from Pelham, was joined by Assemblywoman Anna Kelles, New Standard Institute, climate activists and members of the fashion industry for a virtual press conference to introduce the Fashion Sustainability and Social Accountability Act.
