Bio Tex
A journey to reduce the damage caused by the throwaway culture & fast fashion
Materials are all around us, but we give a very little thought to their impact on our daily lives; where they come from, how they are designed into our products, & what happens after we’re finished using them.If we need to prevent waste created by the packaging industry we need to switch to materials which are sustainable,renewable and eco-friendly In my research project- BioTex,I’ve used microbes, agricultural waste(potato peel,banana peel,corn,algae,orange peel) & sea food waste (exoskeleton of sea creatures) to produce ecologically sensitive materials that cause zero damage to the environment.These bio materials are produced by completely natural processes & they degrade faster in the environment .A range of products can be made using these materials. It can be used in packaging industry replacing petroleum based plastic,fashion industry, footwear industry etc.
