Wear More. Wash Less® presented by Polygiene
At his previous position at Patagonia, Steve worked alongside Polygiene in establishing a consumer study how reducing one wash load per week will, over the course of a year, save you time, energy and have a major environmental impact. The presentation will address the metrics and research that went into the study and bring more light to the environmental impact of the garment industry and how through certain technologies, our impact can be mitigated.
