Jacob Elordi is a GQ September cover star

The difficulties of recycling old clothing
Recycling processes can turn old clothes into valuable raw materials, which could offer a solution to the growing amount of clothing waste. Startup SuperCircle is looking to simplify the costly and complicated process of getting old clothes from consumers' wardrobes into the hands of recyclers. SuperCircle's vision is circular fashion — the idea that the industry could "reorient itself around products that are made, purchased, recycled, remade and resold while consuming as few new resources as possible." With so much clothing going into the trash, being burnt or sent to landfill, brands must begin to take the mission of circular fashion seriously. {Business of Fashion}

Jackie Aina receives backlash for candle name
The beauty YouTuber, who owns candle company Forvr Mood, is receiving backlash online for naming one of her latest candles "Soro Soke." This Yoruba phrase translates to "speak up" or "speak louder" and was used as a rallying cry during Nigeria's #EndSars social movement in 2020, which called for an end to police brutality. People have called out Aina, who is Nigerian American, for being notably silent at the time and are accusing her of only promoting Nigerian culture when she can profit off of it. Aina has since apologized on her Instagram and pulled the product, saying, "...we missed the mark on this and it will never happen again." {The Cut}
