@Algiknit bioyarn being handknit into a fully fashioned zero-waste tank by our own @aleksandra.gos for the #NYTM #CraftingChange exhibit @museumatfit. Machine washing of synthetic textiles, themselves a primary source of climate change and landfill waste, is also responsible for 2/3 of the primary micro plastics in the ocean β€”which contain and absorb toxic chemicals and pathogens that move through the food web. Β A fleece jacket can shed as many as 250,000 plastic fibers per wash! @Algiknit seeks to #rethinkeverything about how we make, use and dispose of products in one of the most polluting industries in the world, to counter climate change, plastic pollution and fresh water scarcity. 5 days left to V O T E for our National Geographic Chasing Genius finalist idea!
