About Founder & Editor
Hi! I’m Verena Erin Polowy but most people know me by my middle name, Erin.
I’ve always loved fashion and while pursuing a design degree I was shocked and honestly horrified learning just how destructive and abusive clothing manufacturing can be – I knew I need to not only change my personal shopping habits but also try to do what I could to educate others and help the industry move in a more positive direction.
For over 10 years I’ve been exploring and learning about sustainable and ethical fashion and slowly building a more conscious and minimal wardrobe (and these values have also spread to other areas of my life). I am passionate about slow fashion, supporting designers and brands who are making sustainable changes in the industry, and helping others learn how their clothes are actually made and how to both shop and live more consciously.
I believe as consumers we have a lot of power to influence change and My Green Closet seeks to educate and inspire people to ask questions, learn, speak out, and make choices that reflect your personal values.
Verena (Erin) Polowy has a Bachelor of Fashion Design and Technology and has worked for clothing brands in various roles. She is Canadian and grew up in Edmonton, Alberta which she recently moved back to after living in Germany for the last few years.
