“Evolution is no linear family tree, but change in the single multidimensional being that has grown to cover the entire surface of Earth.”
—Lynn Margulis, What Is Life?
Scientist & designers are working on materials that promise new ways of containing, combining, and growing raw materials. Zero waste materials are challenging the fossil industry’s precepts currently dictating society, government, and business.
Manufacturing is getting smarter and more agile. A return to microfactories—yes, an ancient concept—makes it viable to devote small production lines to prove these materials. Now, we have the capacity to build and wire the modular production to optimize for responsiveness & quality.
Consumers want solutions that reflect their values: impact-weighted properties; aesthetics, signaling care for the environment; unity of personal and global biomes, in ease—not disease.
And folks are tired of waiting.
