Oyster Repurposed

Repurposing oyster shells has applications in everything from fashion to alcohol

Trend - The repurposing of oyster shells is a growing industry as categories related to agriculture, fashion, and even alcohol look towards environmentally friendly production. The diversity of the biomaterial is vast, as it can be converted into everything from textiles to animal food.

Insight - As brands and consumers look for ways to become more environmentally friendly, the use and purchase of alternative biomaterials is a particularly appealing choice. For consumers, having the ability to maintain their regular purchase habits while still being eco-friendly is crucial in motivating them to live sustainably. Thus, alternative materials that can be easily integrated into standard items function as the ideal pathway for sustainable consumption.
Workshop Question - Where in your production process could your brand consider alternative biomaterials to become more sustainable?
