We create healthier chemistry between people, the things they love, and the planet. We also create this bi-weekly newsletter — curated with interesting and inspiring stories relevant to anyone interested in making our industries and our economies more bioharmonious.
We observed Earth Day last week, which marked 50 years of demonstrating support for environmental protection and the natural systems of which we depend. Many attended online events to celebrate our planet but also to reflect and even repent humanity’s detrimental impact on nature. Across decades, the scientific community has made incredible findings that help us better understand the world and our relationship with it. This year, we must recognize what systems and processes have not been working while being the positive force that advocates for resilience. Nature is telling us time is running out. It will test our societal systems. The good news is that humanity can harness the power of changing the world for the better.
Sustainability has been a hot topic in the world of fashion for the past few months. Researchers, activists, and consumers have been asking the industry to adopt a system that minimizes and mitigates detrimental environmental impacts. COVID-19 seems to be no threat to the sustainability conversation, as enterprises are forced to find and adapt to a new normal. As social and environmental problems within the fashion industry are revealed left and right, circularity is becoming central to the discussion. Digital content on the topics of material science, green chemistry, and overall sustainability is continuously produced. It seems COVID’s stop on time is a window of opportunity for industries to invest in ideas rooted in sustainability and social responsibility.
