Re.Design for a Sustainable Future - A Forum
Re.Design. For A Sustainable Future.
Textile & Fashion Hub Sustainability Forum
Let’s re-think how we design and make a product.
What can we do to re-duce the negative impact our industry has on the environment?
How can we re-cycle not just our waste, but the wisdom from the past?
What can be done to re-innovate and keep businesses viable?
How can we re-design a sustainable future for our industry?
Learn from the experts and hear from local sustainable businesses. Run June 15 2012 as an introduction to several key elements of designing and producing a more sustainable product.
