Design Week: Let's Talk Transparency

  • EcoTrust 721 NW 9th Ave #200 Portland, Oregon 97209 (map)

Who wants to know what’s in their food, their clothes, their buildings? This Pecha Kucha style event gathers diverse voices, including NGC's Dr. Amelia Nestler, in industries that address material transparency in their work. From fashion, to food, to buildings, we will hear from industry leaders about their supply chain processes, to end products and how they implement material transparency into everyday practices. The cross pollination of major industries in Portland will fuel a lively conversation highlighting health impact from the stuff that is our material world.


We will Hear From:
FASHION| Britt Howard @ Portland Garment Factory
FOOD| Camas Davis @ PDX Meat Collective
CHEMISTRY| Amelia Nestler @ Northwest Green Chemistry
POLICY| Jordan Palmeri @ DEQ
ARCHITECTURE| Lona Rerick- Sustainable Materials Leader at ZGF
