Here’s your chance to vote and help reinvent fashion!
The non-profit H&M Foundation awards new technology ideas that help make fashion more sustainable. (The H&M Foundation was founded by the family behind the fast-fashion chain H&M.)
The Global Change Award is in its second year. Sorting through nearly 3000 submissions from 130 countries, a panel of judges chooses five winners. Then the public (YOU) is invited to vote. Each of the five is a winner but there’s a first place, second place and so on based on the number of votes. First place gets the biggest pot of money – $326,000.
All of the ideas are impressive: Manure couture, Solar textiles, Content thread, Grape leather, Denim-dyed denim.
For example: Solar textiles makes fashion fabric with water, plant waste, and sun. This fabric can replace oil-based nylon and other man-made fabrics, which create green houses gases.
You can read about each one, watch a short video, and vote your choice. It’s informative. It’s empowering. It’s fun! Tell your friends.
Voting is open now through April 2nd.
