Fashion for Good has welcomed four new innovators to their Scaling Programme. All of these innovators were prior participants in the Fashion for Good-Plug and Play Accelerator Programme. Joining the Scaling Programme will give these innovators the opportunity to run pilots with Fashion for Good’s corporate partners and expand their operations.

With the inclusion of the four innovators namely Mango Materials, Algalife, Nature Coatings and Sonovia (previously Nano Textile), Fashion for Good now counts a total of 18 innovators that have participated in their Scaling Programme since their inception two years ago. Their addition – in particular Algalife, Nature Coatings and Sonovia, the first dye and finishing innovators in the programme – not only strengthens Fashion for Good’s portfolio of innovators, but also occupy crucial positions in the industry value chain.

Mango Materials produces biodegradable bio-polyester that can be used as a sustainable alternative to polyester presently utilised in the fashion industry. The circular technology benefits the environment throughout its entire process from renewable feedstock sourcing to carbon recycling at the end of a product’s life. "Having participated in the Fashion for Good accelerator programme in 2018, we are incredibly excited to join their Scaling Programme. We see this as a fantastic opportunity to work with their brand partners in the form of pilots and projects this year, as well as to increase our brand awareness and storytelling,” Molly Morse, CEO.

Sonovia, previously Nano Textile, offers a sustainable alternative to binder chemicals normally used to attach finishes onto a fabric. “Our hopes for the Scaling Programme are to run trials with the biggest companies in the industry (Fashion for Good’s corporate partners) and to be able to quantify our positive environmental impact. This is a fantastic opportunity to work with a group of amazing people that give their best to make the world a better place,” Roy Hirsch, VP business development.

“The support we have received from Fashion for Good through the Accelerator – and now the Scaling Programme, means so much to us. The Accelerator helped us shift our business model and focus in order to help us get into the market faster and the Scaling Programme provides validation from the market place that our pigment is needed. We hope to have pilot programs with brand partners in place and even completed by the end of the programme. We are excited to see our pigment go to market with these brands!” Jane Palmer, CEO Nature Coatings.

“Joining the Scaling Programme is a great next step in Algalife’s mission to scale. Our aim is to work collaboratively on pilots with the Fashion for Good partner brands, continuing to work together on a clean, healthy future for all of us and our future generations,” Renana Krebs, CEO of Algalife.
