    Our hopes for the Scaling Programme are to run trials with the biggest companies in the industry (Fashion for Good’s corporate partners) and to be able to quantify our positive environmental impact. This is a fantastic opportunity to work with a group of amazing people that give their best to make the world a better place.

    The support we have received from Fashion for Good through the Accelerator – and now the Scaling Programme, means so much to us. The Accelerator helped us shift our business model and focus in order to help us get into the market faster and the Scaling Programme provides validation from the market place that our pigment is needed. We hope to have pilot programs with brand partners in place and even completed by the end of the programme.
