On the food side….
C16 bioscience, the new palm oil
It is well known that palm oil has been associated with deforestation and habitat loss for many years now. To address this daunting problem, innovations are coming into play to produce an eco-friendly and sustainable substitute in the lab. It's a company called C16 bio sciences that stands out, given that it benefits from the investment of Bill Gates. The goal ? Producing palm oil identical to classic palm oil thanks to bioreactors, but without the negative effects of the usual palm oil and all the controversies it raises.
Demetra, food preservation
Fruits and vegetables spoil very quickly, it is a proven fact. So Green Code SRL has the idea of developing a treatment that extends the shelf life of food. This treatment allows less food to be thrown away, and therefore significantly reduces waste. In addition, no technical product is used for this technique. Thank you Demetra !
Going through nature...
BioPack, the beginning of the end for single use
Plastic bags have been banned since 2016 in France, a step towards success, of course, but there is still a long way to go! It is therefore the designer George Bosnas who is interested in the development of BioPack. This packaging will be used to wrap the eggs. Composed of bleached paper pulp, organic vegetable seed starch and flour, you can even plant this packaging in the ground to watch pretty plants grow. From earth to earth, here is BioPack 's bet.
Ocean CleanUp, there is more plastic than fish in the ocean
The subject has been courted a lot, but we couldn't talk to you about innovation without telling you about this project. 80% of ocean waste comes from land, so we are the main players in its destruction. Experts estimate that in 30 years the number of fish will be lower than the number of plastic waste. We must act without wasting time, Ocean Clean Up presents itself as the biggest clean-up in history. The technology consists of placing a giant float in the middle of the ocean to gather the waste and extract it in one place like a giant net.
The Jordan project, the water cycle
Only 0.6% of wastewater in France is recycled. No country in Europe has a system in place for home use. While other countries such as Australia, manages to recycle up to 4% of its wastewater. Climate change puts us at risk of a shortage of drinking water on earth. Construction of the project will last until mid-2022, and the project is expected to be operational in 2024.
The fashion that goes into fashion
The world of ready-to-wear has recognized, there is little time, its contribution to the impact of the environment.
Solutions are found, applications are launched and values are shared.
Common Objective, Fashion LinkedIn
This application is used to cross all the professionals of the production chain united around the same cause, to make sustainable fashion a standard. Digitization has an essential role, which affects everyone and is faster. Zara adjusts its production according to its algorithm, a garment that barely makes a few clicks disappears from the offer. The big mass production brands are also getting involved, and that feels good!
The new talents who are building the future
All of these innovations are led by talented souls who crave change. In France, thousands of brands are investing every day to participate at their level in the world of tomorrow. Our Vent team does its best to innovate and become eco-actors through our collections of ethical bracelets .
