Material Innovation for the Circular Economy



If we want to make a positive impact on the world and move towards a circular economy, we must think about materials differently. Luckily, designers interested in sustainability now have real, affordable, planet-friendly options for materials. Regenerated, recycled, reused, and biobased plastics offer exciting new possibilities for aesthetics and performance—provided they are used in responsible and appropriate ways. Join our panel of experts from material science, manufacturing, and design to discuss how material exploration can become the cornerstone of a sustainable future.
