Video From FEEDBACK FRIDAY: Krystle Moody Wood of Materevolve

Last week, and in celebration of World Water Day, we welcomed Krystle Moody Wood of Materevolve. Krystle shared an overview of the critical ocean and water impacts resulting from current textile and apparel systems and the key ways textile leaders can address issues such as microfiber pollution, shifts from climate change, forever chemicals, and more. We followed the presentation with a discussion centered around the role of natural dyes as a solution for these critical issues through the lens of water.
