This week’s guest on The WTiN Podcast is Georgia Parker, innovation manager at Fashion For Good.
Founded in 2017, Fashion for Good is a global innovation platform that is on a mission ‘to make all fashion good’. By sparking and scaling innovation, by offering practical action in the form of support, funding and roadmaps, and by fostering sector-wide collaboration rather than competition, the organisation enables invention and widespread adoption of good fashion practice.
In this episode, Parker highlights the organisation’s newly launched scheme called The Renewable Carbon Textiles Project that aims to accelerate the development of PHA polymers. She mentions the collaborators involved, the plan of action, and how the project could lead to commercial pilots and trials afterwards.
Elsewhere, Parker talks about this year’s accelerator programme and the solutions that have particularly caught her eye, noting that there is still a huge opportunity in areas such as digitalisation and manufacturing technology for sustainable innovation. And how important it is to fully understand the impact of these new solutions to ensure they are better than the materials that we’re trying to replace.
