Microfiber Innovation Challenge Launch Event

Plastic Oceans’ Director of Science to Speak
We’re calling all geniuses to join Conservation X Labs for the launch of the Microfiber Innovation Challenge, a $650,000 competition to source and support transformative innovations to address microfiber pollution. The launch event will feature leaders in sustainable fashion, scientists on the cutting-edge of microfiber research studying the impacts on our health & ecosystems, and insights from our brand partners about what the future of microfiber innovation looks like. Join us as we kick-off the Challenge application process, and begin our search for innovators with solutions to replace textiles that are sources of plastic microfibers, or develop improved textile manufacturing processes to decrease microfiber shedding.
