LS&Co. will fund to the tune of more than $350,000 the solutions which have come out of Levi Strauss & Co.’s Collaboratory fellowship on water challenges in the apparel industry. The fellowship brought together entrepreneurs and social entrepreneurs committed to the issue. The grant will enable Collaboratory fellows to implement water-saving projects.

The projects range from making wastewater treatment solutions more affordable for small artisan workshops to expanding an indigo dyeing facility that uses less water.

“To have the support of the entire team at an iconic brand like LS&Co. - an industry stalwart - makes me believe that we can truly make a difference in the apparel industry. Water is the biggest challenge we face globally in the coming decades and our industry is one of the biggest users. To work together and take a shot at changing the course of our future is exciting and fills me with optimism,” said Collaboratory fellow Kavita Parmar, founder and creative director at the IOU project.

The Collaboratory is a fellowship programme for entrepreneurs and social entrepreneurs who are working to create a more sustainable apparel industry, giving them a chance to pursue big and bold ideas with the support of mentors, sustainability experts and their peers.

“Working with LS&Co. changed how we look at innovation by educating and challenging our team to think in a more holistic way about our impact. With access to funding and mentorship from the most innovative team in the apparel industry, we have an opportunity to make a real difference in what we do and how we produce products,” said Collaboratory fellow Kevin McCracken, co-founder of Social Imprints.

Each year the programme will take on a different social or environmental sustainability challenge facing the industry. The focus for this year’s inaugural class of fellows is water, an issue LS&Co. has been tackling for some time.

“We were honoured to bring together the next generation of global leaders to share ideas, aspirations and innovations for achieving a common goal. We look forward to seeing the Collaboratory fellows’ water impact solutions come to life and inspire a future of empowered sustainable apparel makers,” said Paul Dillinger, vice president and head of global product innovation, LS&Co.
