Nicole Rawling – Material Innovation Initiative’s Website

The Material Innovation Initiative is a new nonprofit with the mission to accelerate the availability of sustainable and cruelty-free alternatives to animal derived materials. We do that by working with companies, entrepreneurs, investors, and scientists to develop high quality, scalable, sustainable, and reasonably priced plant-based and lab grown leather, wool, silk, down, fur, and exotic skins. A grant from The Pollination Project will help us develop our website, which is critical to share our resources and message, collect donations, and engage our audiences.
