The three biggest impacts on the planet are transportation, clothing, and agriculture. Is it possible for all three industries to work together to make the world a greener place?
Absolutely. All life is interconnected and interdependent. Especially food and fashion, since both have major agricultural inputs.

If these large industries start to collaborate with these types of plot experiments, it raises the bar of experimentation and exploration. What else is possible with an alliance between industry players?

Seleyn talks about why industry leaders need to come together to promote regenerative ideas, common concerns from businesses considering the change, and what she hopes for the future.
