Eco-Hour is a networking event focused on connecting and promoting northwest leaders working at the intersection of business, innovation, sustainability and community.
Join us for our first Eco-Hour of 2016 featuring a brilliant example of circular economy in action and beautiful colors made from natural plant and mineral dyes!
Winner of the 2014 SVP Fast Pitch Competition, Evrnu is a start-up that is helping the textiles industry worldwide make a massive leap forward in closing its materials loops. Evrnu’s revolutionary technology recycles cotton garment waste to create a regenerative supply of high-quality, renewable fibers for the creation of new clothing.
Botanical Colors supplies artisans and the textile industry with natural dyes that are beautiful, sustainable, and environmentally friendly, while supporting farming communities and small producers. Their biodegradable, non-toxic dyes use less water and draw their incomparable color palette from humble plants and natural sources like agricultural and food waste products.
Build relationships with like-minded peers, share ideas, and learn about the activities NBIS and others are carrying out to promote sustainable and profitable business in the region.
