By taking clothing that would otherwise go into the landfill or be incinerated and converting into a usable textile fiber, Evrnu is allowing consumers a new choice in fashion. Founder Stacy Flynn said, “Sustainable practices and textile innovations like Evrnu that reduce resource extraction and waste will save the fashion industry from itself.” She notes, “The fashion world thrives on style obsolescence and consumption.” She hopes to fundamentally change the fashion industry by enabling ever-changing fashion to become more environmentally friendly. Stacy is presently raising money for Evrnu via a crowdfunding campaign on Indieogo, where, with just a week to go she is approaching her goal of $25,000.
