Webinar "The hidden human cost of your outdoor gear: The role of better chemistry in ensuring total product integrity"

Please join Bluesign and OIA for Part 1 of a partner webinar series starting at 1:00 pm Mountain time on Thursday, June 13, 2019.

This 3 part series deeply explores the supply network to better understand why your chemical integrity must be considered all the way back to the creation of molecules… and what you can do about it.

Episode 1 on June 13th: Great product with a tragic linkage. We love our high performing products - they’re lightweight, strong, highly functional and colorful. But what do all of these things have in common? Chemistry. Chemistry can often be framed as negative… but it isn't. It should be considered positive. Without chemistry there is no product. Chemistry done well is not the problem, in fact, it is the solution. However, there are challenging issues rooted in the creation and application of chemistry that go far beyond the substances found on, or in, your most beloved jacket or pack. A recent chemical supplier explosion may seem like a distant tragedy, but its link to our industry & your product may surprise you. Join this webinar to get a (non-technical) look into the genesis of the many materials and functions that we love, the connection to a deep supply network, and our responsibility as brands and an industry to do much better.
