I’m Bel Jacobs FRSA. I’m a former fashion editor for Metro turned climate and animal activist and campaigner for alternative systems in fashion. I am a member of Extinction Rebellion, spokesperson for Animal Rebellion and co-founder of Fashion Act Now, aiming to challenge the industry as it stands. I edit two online magazines – https://beljacobs.com and https://hownowmagazine.com – and am founder of the nascent Fashion in Schools project, aiming to inform and educate secondary school students about how the current fashion system operates and exploits other peoples, animals and the planet. My dream is to open a permaculture garden, animal sanctuary and animal education centre in Dorset!!
