Is it possible to be an ethical influencer? Feat. Leah Musch - The Unmaterial Girl

On this episode I speak with Leah Musch, AKA - The Unmaterial Girl.

Starting her entrepreneurial journey at a young age, Leah had opened, run and sold her own store in her early 20's before developing her profile as an influencer, based on themes of slow fashion and conscious consumerism.

We speak about her journey into this lifestyle and also the key question, is it possible to be an ethical influencer? 

When partnering with brands to promote sales in return for payment or product, how does this balance with the messaging that encourages people to buy less and buy better, and can this be done without feeling hypocritical? 

Leah goes into depth about her thoughts on this, and how she works to incorporate a system of transparency that helps her make sense of this ongoing conundrum.
