Chapter 1 of the journey
Director, Nate Peracciny follows Big Tony Alvarez, Volcom’s VP of Global of Compliance & Supply Chain to India to document the progress of Volcom’s ‘Farm To Yarn‘ initiative. Big Tony, Alison Ward (CottonConnect CEO), the farmers and village women share their experience with the program and the benefits of moving away from conventional cotton farming and embracing organic farming.
