Tracey Martin has been a certified Transformational Life Coach as well as health/life and wellness advisor for more than 25 years. In addition, she is a renowned public speaker on the subject of fashion sustainability. She founded her own line of ecologically responsible bags by the name of Threads of Evolution. Using local artisans, plant based dyes, and a completely cruelty free process from production to the sourcing of materials; Tracey has maintained her mission of helping others in any way that she can. She has spoken across the country to young fashion student’s about the dangers of current toxins used by today’s apparel giants. As well as the educating of consumers so they can make completely informed buying decisions. Having worked in the fashion industry herself for more than 17 years, with three successful brands under her belt; responsible manufacturing is nothing new to this thought leader. Frustrated with the lack of transparency in the current “organic/low impact” dye process, Tracey decided to take matters into her own hands and partnered with the leaders in the organic dye world to create De La Terre Colours. GOT certified, plant-based dyes. De La Terre Colours is actually 100% organic and truly groundbreaking in the apparel industry. Tracey’s mission is simple, to protect our natural resources, planet, and our most precious resource: humankind.
