I find it so inspiring when people look for new and innovative ways to improve on industry norm solutions.
I found an article on Forbes.com that talks about new innovations in by-product material production:
The processes mentioned in the article are so creative and forward thinking. Ideas like fruit based vegan leathers, viscose from orange peels and material from potato waste show that there is way more to sustainability than paper and plastic recycling.
Some of the new developments will gain mainstream success, some will fall by the wayside and some will inspire even newer innovations. The key is to keep striving for better and not fall victim to stagnant process.
