RGD Webinar: Regenerative Design, Carbon Negative Materials and the Power of Seaweed

Presented by Julia Marsh
What if plastic, one of the basic building blocks of modern society, was transformed into a regenerative, guilt-free material? In this talk, Sway co-founder and CEO Julia Marsh will share how her company is helping make that future possible through the power of seaweed. We'll also explore a variety of regenerative, bio-based, and carbon-negative materials emerging in the industry, barriers to scale and the role designers play in building systems that inherently restore and replenish life.
