Wednesday, August 18th / 2pm EDT
Join us for a conversation with Miranda Wang (Co-Founder and CEO of Novoloop), Sea F. Briganti (CEO, Chief Visionary and Co-Founder of LOLIWARE), and Valentina Gomez (Co-Founder and CIO of Werewool).
These innovative companies are pushing the boundaries by redesigning textiles and single use products to create new categories of high-performance materials with reduced environmental impact, enabling healthier products and experiences.
Our guests will share their stories and discuss how they’re addressing plastic waste in the fashion, packaging, and polymer sectors. Let’s come together to celebrate their milestones and learn how we can all better support the building of a prosperous society.

Dr. Andrew Dent, EVP of Research, presents A Changing Material World. The world of materials is changing – and changing the products they go into. Sustainability, circular economy, end of life concerns, increased localized sourcing and production, as well as increased industry regulation mean that there are significant consequences to your materials choices.
Join Material ConneXion to discuss the current climate and future concerns for these consequences to your consumers, the environment, and your company’s success.
