  • Today, as companies try to convince the public why sustainability matters, some marketers and communicators are exploring a new strategy, one that stresses sustainability values that matter to people without alienating them with sustainability jargon – call it soft sustainability. Finally, at the top of the sustainability communication difficulty pyramid is soft sustainability and the art of talking about sustainability without ever mentioning the term. http://www.theguardian.com/sustainable-business/2015/feb/24/is-communicating-sustainability-a-subtle-attempt-at-doing-good?CMP=share_btn_tw

7.1.1 Fast fashion cannot be replaced entirely, strategic direction is whats needed
7.1.1.1 Either consumer behaviours need to change or legislation and strategy does

7.1.1.1.1.1 If the propositions emerging from this paper survive empirical testing, they will extend our theories of corporate sustainability beyond the all-or-nothing type of argument underlying most of the CSP–CFP debate. This in turn will hopefully lead to a more relevant description of the corporate sustainability challenges faced by most managers.
