8.000.000+ tons of plastic waste escapes into the oceans every year!*
Even though, plastics made from fossil fuels are just over a century old much of the planet is swimming in discarded plastic, harming animal and human health. Half of all plastics ever manufactured have been made in the last 15 years. Production is expected to double by 2050.
In her talk “Textile Façades with Bottle Past” at #LSU Katja Bernert will share the pros and cons of upcycling PET bottles into fabric meshes for architectural applications.

Katja Bernert, is a well-known weaving and coating expert, and a Textile Architecture enthusiast. She works at the internationally operating membrane manufacturer Mehler Texnologies®.
