"On the show today ideas about growth and consumption. And how can rethink both to create a more circular system? Even when it comes to what we're wearing you can you. Can you describe your style? like what. What might you wear on a typical day? Well I don't like to go out the door unless I can look in the mirror and it makes me chuckle just a little bit. This is Jesse ARRINGTON. She's a graphic designer. So you know something. Unexpected like pattern clashing is one thing. I like to do so. Maybe I'll put a stripe with a plaid or You know a floral with a polkadot or something like that. That's always fun and then I think that color has a big impact on not only how you're feeling but how people respond to you so like as a way to stand out. It's just really fun to where really bright colors. I hope that my epitaph one day as she was not afraid of color. So tell me about your clothes. Shopping habits were you get your stuff. Well you know. I like to go to a lot of thrift stores secondhand stores or clothing resale shops. Those are really the primary places where I find things to. You're not going to like fast fashion stores. No I mean I haven't set foot in one of those in a very long time and really I'd say about ninety percent of my wardrobe is strictly. You know in some form or fashion. Secondhand has been worn by somebody else or owned by somebody else before it came to my closet and just he took this idea to the extreme when she went to a weeklong Ted Conference and nothing in her suitcase. Except for seven pairs of underwear Jesse ARRINGTON picks up her story from the stage. Exactly one week's worth of unease is all I put in my suitcase. I was betting that I'd be able to find everything else. I could possibly want to wear once I got here to Palm Springs. And since you don't know me as the woman walking around. Ted In her underwear that means I found a few things and I'd really love to show you my week's worth of outfits right now. Does that sound? Go as I do this. I'm just GONNA I'm also going to tell you a few of the life lessons that believe it or not. I have picked up in these adventures wearing nothing new. Let's start with Sunday. I call this shiny tiger. You describe the some of the outfits that you Warsaw so Shiny Tiger this Sunday. Do you remember what that looked like? Yeah I think it was like a gold sequence skirt and there was just like this tiger print blouse if you can pull off tiger stripes with gold sequence and then like a rat a pop of red. I don't know it's just fun. Monday color is powerful. It is almost physiologically logically impossible to be in a bad mood when you're wearing bright red pants. I'm wearing red pants. Some cowboy boots over the top of the red pants and smock like thing that I found in the through store. I love when you can find something. That's been hands. So Tuesday fitting in is way overrated. I spent I think maybe it was like a big swing tent dress that I found And again that was one of those pieces that somebody created something really special. I think it was four. Different kinds of fabric patchwork together and this big swing tent dress and then I wore sort of like a red sash the Bandanna kind of thing on my head and that was the one when I went back and watch the talk recently I was like oh I wish I still had that one that special. I hope somebody good has that one after the after Ted ended that we would you? Do you gathered up your clothes in. Would you do them well? Actually I'll tell you secret. I gathered up my clothes and I went on a road trip to Austin for south by southwest so actually did get a couple more wears out of everything but before I left Austin and flew back to New York. Everything got donated to a thrift store there on so maybe I helped migrate a few pieces from the Palm Springs Desert to the Austin thrift shops. Before before this interview is just kind of reading a little bit about the fashion industry and clothing. And I I kind of knew this but didn't realize this but Close Manufacturing Textile. Dyeing is the second biggest polluter of clean water in the world. This is after agriculture. And apparently a lot of this has to do with just the mass proliferation of fast fashion like super cheap clothing like he. He can just go into one of these. We know the stores and just buy something really cheap where it once or twice and then just throw it away. And that's in lots of people do this well and we're trained to do this. It's almost been told to us that. It's our patriotic duty. I remember living in New York after nine eleven. It was like go downtown shop. Go shop go shop and Yeah okay I guess I can see that but I think we need to rethink not just our consumerism. But our economies in general. And how can we base them less on consumption consumption consumption and at all costs and without being thoughtful? We're talking with David Katz about you know the similar problem with plastic which isn't necessarily cleaning up plastic waste which is a huge problem right. But it's that we're just making so much of it every day without realizing that we don't actually need to make so much because there's so much that we can just recycle and that seems to be the problem with clothing that it's made so quickly now and the supply chains the production Systems are so efficient and the cost of labor so low because of how they're manufactured people internally developed world can just buy lots of clothes apparently people now by sixty percent more clothing than they did in the year. Two thousand we have so much invested in it. Think about how you know. We've been told that how we look is who we are and we're constantly having to You know stay in line with trends and things like that another thing. That's great about reusing clothing. Is that you get to play with those trends and you get to mix them up and you know there's nothing new under the sun if it's a trend right now it has happened at some point since the industrial revolution and you can probably find it out there in a way that it already existed away. That's more original away. That tells a bigger deeper story than buying it off Iraq with fifty others. Yeah I found myself for the last. I don't know twenty five years just wearing a sweatshirt and like a headband and sweatpants and now all of a sudden is a cool thing. I needed some neon sunglasses and I just blend right in. You look like one of the really trendy kids now. I think a lot of style comes from within. It doesn't have to be new and it doesn't have to be expensive and it doesn't have to have damaged the planet or hurt somebody. You know this fast. Fashion Movement is so new that we're still. I think it's two thousand eleven that it really hit its height and we're still dealing with what that means and I think the public is still becoming educated about that and I have seen pushback from people From consumers wanting to be more conscious I think that maybe not everybody what what if just fifty percent did it. What fifty percent of US said we're just going to You know work with what's already here. You know. In some ways maybe the planet and scarcity will will force us to that perspective. It's just ERRINGTON. She's a graphic designer. You can see her full talk at Dot Com..

"Thought he might be on the lead. I thought maybe we'd Overdone it. But he got him settled beautifully just off the leaders and I really thought she one pretty comfortably. Things opened up at the top of the stretch rich and you know she beat a couple of really good European phillies and not to mention absolutely as well. Well exactly and die and Albania Albania and they both. They both probably went home in a Roger. Varian and Jesse ARRINGTON. They undoubtedly went home muttering to themselves salves and kicking some cats because they had some traffic issues Sweet Millennia a drawn outside and Jose Ortiz. At the you know work out a trip and and she you know she ran credibly but Sharing Day and there it is the spice down Philly and Sagamore Sagamore. I think I think the second I made some notes actually On Sunday morning I went through the winners and I was trying to figure out you know who had had multiple multiple either either bread or own multiple winners and they didn't. I don't think sagamore didn't breed shared account right shared account must have been purchased by sack would've been a purchase. I believe that was when Bob felt was buying the Sagamore and I think he would've picked out all right so this I think is according to my notes. This is saga. Moore's first the first Breeders Cup bread winner and of course Between Anthony Back and gains way at eclipse really. A you know a special win for them talk about what's what's ahead because both you and Chad Brown were referencing Jerk tries down the road for for both of the juvenile turf winters. Yeah I mean it's possible. I think it's more likely they will stick with the turf. I mean obviously of talk some more to To Antony and Erin but I think turf is most likely to be in the future in her future My kicked around possibly the idea of pointing for the temper oaks. I think that's a great starting point. Gives me a chance to give her a little break now. I think she's got a lot of growing to do. She's grown so much since from August at Saratoga. To to the Breeders Cup she grew so much she changed changed a lot and I think she's got a lot more growing to do so. I'd like to give her a little break now and give her a chance to catch up but I think the temperature the race. That sort of looks like a good point. Raise two point four. I love the turf course there at Tampere and a little stable. They're so it'd be something that'd be easy for me to do. Oh Nice and you also you also were floating. Some some ascot suggest did that. Maybe but I haven't discussed it with any of the -partment so I don't WanNa get too far ahead of myself but look I think if it came up in discussions. She's feeling that could possibly go. Oh to to ask and and run in the race that That Ms Temple City ran in. I can't remember the name of the race. It's a it's a one turn mile race You Know Miss Temple City finished fourth in that race. I think shared accounts sharing is affiliated. Could could handle something like that She's very sensible You know I think if she continues to improve. There's no reason we couldn't consider something like that if they wanted to. Well I I. I think people would love to see Aaron in in one of the outfits. I mean that that looked like something put on a wedding cake. Under that scenario the coronation right the coronation. Exactly yes that's exactly what it is but I mean if I want to go back to ask I really need to feel good about batted. We've taken a few shots. Temple City ran well. But you know I don't want to just go for the heck of and I'd like to go back and really feel good about doing well. You gotTa feel good Another Breeders Cup win added to the resume and the sharing and it certainly was. I was certainly happy to share. Share my opinion of of her potential in the spot with with the listeners and readers because the the twenty nine sixty Put Us Nice my spurs to the the whole weekend Couple of other thoughts about Breeders Cup before I hit a few other topics and of course Mississippi in the Philly and mayor turf on Saturday and what happened there disappointing. I mean I really felt good about running her She'd obviously you come close to to Chad still in flyable. I think she really just didn't care for that firm ground she'd just didn't run a raise at all I. I wasn't concerned about where she was during the running of the race they went really quick and Joel was comfortable enough where he where he was even though he was far back but she just never ran on at all and was disappointing but she came out of the race grade possible. We could come back in the Long Island. Give her another star this year but clearly. She's better than our format day. That was a that was a disappointment. Well just the fact that she's coming back and there's plenty to be done with her a couple of other Thoughts Graham before. Ask You about Some winters that we haven't spoken about like English be who won parks Fall Derby got a couple of other nice nice winter's going back the bald legal winner. He's no lemon. You had as always a thoughtful response. That was very much appreciated and well received By stakeholders and fans after the Breeders Cup. And you know every everybody not everybody left knowing what was transpiring hiring with the Mongolian groom but I thought what you wrote was a really Had the right tone and you really the right message. Yeah I mean I I guess I tend to be a little bit of a spoken about things and I have a platform on twitter but I I just really left center nita that night with a tough tough feeling. It really tore on your heartstrings. I mean it was just the most amazing we can and we came close to having this just most perfect two days and I it was as you. Well know. It's just the most beautiful setting I mean there was some credible performances And it was just devastating for the host to get hurt in the classic and it just I think it took the window of everybody's sails But you know as hard as we try and I think the the veterinary work was incredible that week. They were very strenuous in their efforts to to to look at the horses and look at my horse at least three times you know. We didn't even train without a host is being inspected the first day So I think it must have been hard for the VEG- to to cope with what happened but at the end of the day you know sadly sometimes horses are GonNa get hurt and I think you know. Try as we might. We're never going to get to this perfect position addition of of of saving every horse. You know we can we can. We can do our most diligent work and and try to protect them and we we as trainers have a huge responsibility every time we send it out there for the voice and the jockey but it's not a perfect world and you know horses like athletes are GonNa get hurt As hard as we try to avoid it and I think we've made huge progress in in in trying to curtail the problems. But you know we've gotta gotTa do better. I'm going to continue to do what we were doing this weekend. At the Breeders Cup the the difficulties that that are encountered. I mean when you have when you have horsemen Aidan. O'Brien and and Brendon Walsh Walsh Having horses essentially excluded by a a pre race examination that team Graham I mean there's there's obviously a scenario that is trying to get every every inch of the horse considered but I mean how how do we how do you explain. I mean have the explain this really when there's obviously going to be horses that that it's just either imperceptible perceptible or not to say that things were missed. I mean people. There's going to be an investigation here. That Dr Bramley is going to conduct an and try to review you everything but I I mean sort of you're sort of at a loss me to say that if if the people of this this is going to happen no matter how careful we are it is and you know. Sadly horses made like us. They just can't tolerate some of these injuries. And and and we also I think we balanced the fine line of how we're GONNA handle this in the future because I don't think we want to get in the position where we're trying to save. Horses perhaps perhaps suffer injuries. That shouldn't be saved just because we don't want to be be struggling with the statistics of of what's being brought up against us. You know I went through a terrible situation back in two thousand one when I rent a horse called funfair in the Breeders Cup He was it was very early on for me. He was a lovely horse. I mean I held him for the Blacksmith that morning on never forget it. It's still haunts me. Day and literally few strides rides from the gate. He appeared from my view Belmont and he he fractured hind leg and I. I never could have anticipated that happening. He was not a horse. We'd had any concerns about out and he was you know he'd been with me. WanNa steak over over the summer at Saratoga and I was devastated. I mean I. I literally drove back to the barn that day and wanted to drive out the gate eight but I still had better talk now to run later in the day and it was you know these. These injuries have huge effects on us as trainers and I you know. I don't go through a day without worrying about a horse getting injured but unfortunately you can't avoid every single injury and that's what I say when I really mean it when I say I think is trained as we got a huge responsibility and I think you know most of us feel that Burton. Every time we send out there Dr all day is going to join us. We haven't had a chance to talk to Steve in in several months. And it's a topic when it comes to pre-race examinations we've touched on it before many times and and Particularly after twenty twelve acqueduct when they had the spate of injuries and the task force came up with a series series of recommendations and reviews to figure out you know what horses are at risk and extra extra layers of precaution and the Graham. I am the one frustration in all of this continues to be that under a microscope. Even though collectively Lee industry-wide there's better and better results in this arena. If there's going to be an outcry on with every single horse that doesn't make it around I. I'm not sure what I don't know how you're going to satisfy critics and isn't there at some point And that in fact Nick Lock earlier in the year when he was on made. This made this statement where the industry has to say. We'd love to say that there's never going to be another horse that that that dies. But that's not the case and we are doing everything possible and we're sorry that there's people out there that I believe that any horse that dies is is wrong and that that that somehow justifies The dismantling of a of a multibillion dollar industry. How do we answer that? Well first of all we have to have a clean conscience. We have to feel like we're doing doing everything we can to avoid these injuries. Whether it's the scrutiny of the vets like we had it the Breeders Cup. Whether it's the the medication rules that we're trying as an industry to do better with. We've got to be able to say that we are doing everything we possibly can to avoid these injuries. And once we have a clear conscience I think we have a leg to stand on but until we get to that point. It's going to be very hard now. You know I do believe that. The original issue essentially was related to the track. You know clearly. They had a very difficult situation this winter with the weather. It's not the first time it's happened. Unfortunately as an industry we did not handle it..

And there was just like this tiger print blouse if you can pull off tiger stripes with gold sequin, and then like a pop of red. I don't know. It's just fun Monday color is powerful. It is almost physiologically impossible to be in a bad mood. When you're wearing bright, red pants. I'm wearing red pants some cowboy boots over the top of the red pants. And this mock like thing that I found in the thrift store, I love when you can find something that's been hands. So. Tuesday fitting in is way overrated, I spent I think maybe it was like a big swing tent dress that I found and again that was one of those pieces that somebody created something really special. I think it was four different kinds of fabric all patchwork together in this. Big swing tent dress. And then I wore sort of like a red sash has abandoned kind of thing on my head. And that was the one when I went back and watched the talk recently. I was like, oh, I wish I still had that one that special. I hope somebody good has that one. After the after Ted ended that we would you do you gathered up your clothes, and would you do them? Well, actually, I'll tell you a secret I gathered up my clothes, and I went on a road trip to Austin for south by south west. So actually did get a couple more wears out of everything. But before I left Austin and flew back to New York. Everything got donated to it thrift store there on. So maybe I helped migrate a few pieces from the Palm Springs desert to the Austin thrift shops. He'll be before before the Senate view is just kind of reading a little bit about the fashion industry and clothing. And I I kind of knew this, but didn't realize this, but close manufacturing textile dyeing is the second biggest polluter of clean water in the world. This is after agriculture, and apparently a lot of this has to do with just the mass proliferation of fast fashion, like super cheap clothing like he can just go into one of these. We know the stores and just buy something really cheap where it once or twice and then just throw it away. And that's in lots of people do this. Well, and we're trained to do this. It's almost been told to us that it's our patriotic duty. I remember living in New York after nine eleven it was like go downtown and shop go shop, go shop and. Yeah, okay. I guess I can see that. But I think we need to rethink, you know, not just our consumerism, but our economies in general, and how can we base them less on consumption consumption consumption, and at all costs. Without being thoughtful. Will we're talking with David Katz about, you know, the similar problem with plastic which isn't necessarily cleaning up plastic waste, which is a huge problem. Right. But it's that we're just making so much every day without realizing that we don't actually need to make so much because there's so much that we can just recycle and that seems to be the problem with clothing that it's made so quickly now and the supply chains the production systems are so efficient and the cost of labor so low because of how they're manufactured people internally developed world can just buy lots of clothes apparently people now by sixty percent more clothing than they did in the year two thousand we have so much invested in it think about how you know. We've been told that how we look is who we are. And we're constantly having to, you know, stay in line with trends and things like that. Another thing that's great about reusing clothing. Is that you get to play with those trends, and you get to mix them up. And you know, there's nothing new under the sun. If it's a trend right now, it has happened at some point since the industrial revolution. And you can probably find it out there in a way that it already existed away. That's more original away. That tells a bigger deeper story than buying it off a rack with fifty others. Yeah. I found myself for the last I don't know twenty five years just wearing a sweatshirt and like a headband and sweatpants. And now all of a sudden is cooling on news like some neon sunglasses, and I just blend right in. You look like one of the really trendy kids. Now. I think a lot of style comes from within. It doesn't have to be new and it doesn't have to be expensive. And it doesn't have to have damaged the planet or hurt. Somebody you know, this fast fashion movement is so new that we're still I think it's two thousand eleven that it really hit its height, and we're still dealing with what that means. And I think the public is still the coming educated about that. And I have seen pushback from people from consumers wanting to be more conscious. I think that maybe not everybody. What what have just fifty percent? Did it? What fifty percent of us said we're just going to work with what's already here. You know, in some ways, maybe the planet and scarcity will will force us to that perspective. That's just airing tan, she's a graphic designer you can see her full talk dot com. Hey,

"jesse arrington" Discussed on TED Radio Hour

"Is on the island of Bali where our Bank branch engages the population to bring us their household material before they go grocery shopping, and then they have the opportunity to buy more rice, buy more oil by more other things. And he had sort of clear that what you're what you're trying to do here is to create a circular economy what we do can't be considering anything. But circular we take a material value exhibit the value of allow people to benefit from that value. It goes back into packaging. It comes back into society. The values revealed again, it's collected put back into packaging and on and on. And I think importantly is well when we acquaint it to like a dollar Bill if you've got a dollar Bill or a five dollar Bill you go to the store you pay for something with a five dollars. The five dollars is not destroyed it circulated. Continues to circulate, and that's what we do. But with plastic like create a commodity of plastic we've created the currency of the plastic. That's what we've done. So does this never thrown away. David Katz, founder and CEO of plastic Bank to hear his full talk. Go to Ted dot com. I'm gonna show today ideas about growth and consumption, and how we can rethink both to create a more circular system. Even when it comes to what we're wearing. Can you can you describe your style? Like like what what might you wear on a typical day. Well, I don't like to go out the door unless I can look in the mirror, and it makes me chuckle just a little bit. This is Jesse Arrington. She's a graphic designer so something unexpected like pattern clashing is one thing. I like to do. So maybe I'll put a stripe with a plaid or, you know, a floral with a polkadot or something like that. That's always fun. And then I think that color has a big impact on not only how you're feeling, but how people respond to you. So like as a way to stand out. It's really fun to where really bright colors. I hope that my epitaph one day is she was not afraid of color. So tell me about your clothes shopping habits like where do you get your stuff? Well, you know, I like to go to a lot of thrift stores secondhand stores or clothing resale shops, those are really the primary places where I find things so you're not going to like fast fashion stores. No, I mean, I haven't set foot in one of those in a very long time. And really I'd say about ninety percent of my wardrobe is strictly, you know, in some form or fashion. Secondhand has been warned by somebody else or owned by somebody else before it came to my closet. Just he took this idea to the extreme when she went to a week long Ted conference in nothing in her suitcase, except for seven pairs of underwear. Jesse Arrington picks up her story from the Ted stage. Exactly one week's worth of undies is all I put in my suitcase. I was betting that I'd be able to find everything else I could possibly want to wear once. I got here to Palm Springs, and since you don't know me as the woman walking around Ted in her underwear. That means I found a few things, and I'd really love to show you my week's worth of outfits right now. Does that sound? I'm just gonna I'm also going to tell you a few of the life lessons that believe it or not I have picked up in these adventures wearing nothing new select start with Sunday. I call this shiny tiger. You do commute describe some of the outfits that you so so shiny tiger. This sunday. Do you remember what that looked like I think it was like a gold sequence skirt? And there was just like this tiger print blouse if you can pull off tiger stripes with gold sequined, and then like a pop of red. I don't know. It's just fun Monday color is powerful..
