unspun: Kevin Martin
Play • 1 hr 18 min

Kevin Martin, Co-founder and CTO at unspun on the inefficiency of the current apparel manufacturing process:

“It’s a $1.5 trillion dollar industry where 10-15% of everything produced every year gets burned and destroyed without ever being sold.”

Unspun is a robotics and digital apparel company building custom jeans for each consumer, on-demand. Their mission is to reduce global carbon emissions by 1% through automated, localized, and intentional manufacturing—building the future of robotic apparel manufacturing right here in the US. By using the iPhone FaceID sensor to create a digital avatar, unspun can instantly design and then build each garment to the actual customer, delivering a completely custom product at off-the-rack prices— all while eliminating unsold inventory waste (a $150B/year loss industry-wide).

As always, HUGE shout out to Climate Tech Cocktails official sponsors ☀️Yotta Energy and 💎Aether Diamonds

This episode is brought to you by ☀️Yotta Energy !  We all know energy storage is key to deploying renewables at scale. I’ve seen many energy storage solutions for commercial buildings over my years in climate tech, but none as impressive as Yotta’s.  

Yotta Energy’s unique "PV-Coupled" ecosystem of solar+storage solutions simply integrates within the standard solar installation process. Even better, their integrated storage technology can enable up to 60% more solar to be deployed on commercial buildings.  With commercial buildings consuming 35% of US electricity that means Yotta is making a serious dent in CO2 emissions. With the electrification of everything revolution underway, Yotta Energy is poised to meet the growing demands of electrification by sizing solar+storage resources to recharge electric vehicles as they future proof buildings into distributed energy sites powering the grid of the future.
