Did you know that plastic microfibers from our clothing are the source of 35% of all microplastics in the ocean? This week we are joined by Barbara Martinez from Conservation X Labs to tell Noel and Jacob about their challenge that will award $650,000 in prizes to winning innovations, how this could revolutionize textiles, and why curling teams need to make a comeback!
This week we are thrilled to welcome the Co-founders of Conservation X Labs, Dr. Paul Bunje and Dr. Alex Dehgan as our guests on The Biofriendly Podcast! Noel and Jacob get a chance to hear a little backstory on how Conservation X Labs came to be, their mission to empower innovation that will end human-induced extinction, and that both scientists are locked in turf war over which is better… snails or lemurs?!
