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.

Ending the global scourge of plastic pollution.
In the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat there is plastic. Plastic pollution is a widespread, complex environmental and health emergency that requires global changes in policies, corporate sourcing, innovation and consumer behavior. Grassroots action and restoration technologies are also needed to clean up plastic pollution wherever it is found. Like other environmental scourges, plastic pollution impacts the poor among us most.
For this webinar, EARTHDAY.ORG has gathered global experts including activists, scientists, policy makers and corporate innovators. Let’s work together to end plastic pollution before it’s too late.
● Discussing theories of change to prevent plastic from polluting our environment.
● Educating viewers on the disproportionate impact of plastic pollution on the global poor.
● Addressing microplastics’ impact on human, animal and ecosystem health.
● Amplifying efforts to clean up plastics wherever they have entered the environment.
