The Forest for Fashion initiative was one of the exhibitors at the UN Environment Assembly 2019 held in Nairobi, Kenya this past week.

The group showcased alternative forest-based materials, that use 60 percent less water and a third less energy than the production of cotton and other materials.

Forest for Fashion seeks to create awareness on how the world of fashion can seek alternative, environmentally sustainable materials, without compromising on beauty or style.

Here’s what the group had to say.

New bionics let us run, climb and dance Forest for Fashion seek alternative 2 days ago   19:01

Hugh Herr is building the next generation of bionic limbs, robotic prosthetics inspired by nature's own designs. Herr lost both legs in a climbing accident 30 years ago; now, as the head of the MIT Media Lab's Biomechatronics group, he shows his incredible technology in a talk that's both technical and deeply personal — with the help of ballroom dancer Adrianne Haslet-Davis, who lost her left leg in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, and performs again for the first time on the TED stage.
