Levi Strauss recently announced over $380,000 for the second class of Collaboratory fellows who are working to create a sustainable apparel industry. The funding will go towards innovations in the supply chain that address climate change issues. The Collaboratory is its program for entrepreneurs who see design and sustainability as inextricably linked.

Projects include rescuing excess fabrics to create beautiful clothes, a data platform for garment factories and textile waste recyclers that enables end-to-end trading and tracing, and reinventing the way goods are sent and received, according to a press release from the company.

The program tackles different social and environmental sustainability challenges that are critically important to the future of the apparel industry and the planet. The first Collaboratory class focused on water. This class focused on climate change.

Levi Strauss believes that climate change is one of the most important issues and a critical challenge for the apparel industry. Mitigating climate change and transitioning to a low-carbon, more circular future are vital to the health and well-being of the people who wear and make the company’s products, and the future supply of raw materials needed to make those products, it added.

This class of Collaboratory fellows attended a weekend workshop at the company’s Eureka Innovation Lab, where they worked through ideas and challenges. Fellows came from around the United States, Europe, Asia and Central America.
