Nobody should die to make our clothes, nobody should be enslaved to keep our prices low. Nobody should accept to pay less for a T-shirt than a coffee. Please people, be responsible in the way you shop, create, produce. Credit: MUNIR UZ ZAMAN/AFP/Getty Images

Biofabrication, design informed by biology, these are some of the solutions for a better and sustainable future. I learned so much when I became an advisor of Modern Meadow and helped launch ZOA, the first organic leather made entirely in a lab. We can’t keep exhausting the planet, but we have the technology and the brains to imitate nature and create perfect products in labs.
