Join us for a FREE Biomimicry webinar

Biomimicry

Hecho x Nosotros and animaná are hosting Denise DeLuca for a FREE webinar tomorrow, 15May2020.

In this webinar you’ll be introduced to Biomimicry — what it is, why you might want to use it, and how it works.

About this Event

Many of us worry about sustainability, climate change, and environmental justice, but don’t know how to align our values with our work. People working across the fashion and textile industries are in particularly challenging situations.

But there is hope!

Nature has already found a way to sustainably solve almost any challenge you can imagine, from creating color to waterproofing. Biomimicry is a way to learn how nature solves these challenges and apply these innovative solutions to your work. In this webinar you’ll be introduced to Biomimicry — what it is, why you might want to use it, and how it works.

I hope to see you there!
