- To support work promoting plant-based alternatives to animal-based fashion.
Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $200,000 over two years to the Material Innovation Initiative (MII) to support work promoting plant-based alternatives to animal-based fashion. This funding is intended to enable MII to hire a Senior Material Scientist, who will promote alternatives to silk and fur by connecting fashion companies with promising alternatives, providing support to plant-based alternatives start-ups, and working with academic researchers.
This falls within Open Philanthropy's focus area of farm animal welfare.
