Star-up PILI – We biofabricate living colors
The fashion industry is the second most polluting industry in the world. To try to remedy the ecological disaster caused by mass consumption of clothing, a start-up offers an alternative. Here are new dyes from bacteria!
The start-up PILI
PILI is the cute name of this start-up that we will hear more and more about in the coming years. This start-up opens the doors to bio-chemistry, offering dyes based on bacteria. The goal is to produce natural dyes, both renewable and competitive , as an alternative to petrochemical dye. PILI attacks one of the most polluting industries, the dyeing industry!
Initially, the start-ip PILI wanted to develop a 100% bio-sourced and biodegradable ink produced by bacteria :
What di you mean ? That is, the start-up wanted to put a bacterium in a pen. Then give her sugar as food regularly, so that it can create a colorful ink. Pretty crazy, right?
These bio-hackers go even further and offer ink workshops!! the workshops are open to both adults and children. The goal is not only to build a discussion but also to deconstruct the fantasies and fears associated with the laboratory and more particularly the micro-organisms, considered only as vectors of diseases.
Psst… PILI is in full fundraising ! You can also follow its activity on Facebook.
These small bacteria remind me of previous articles, like the beer or wine dress, do not hesitate to go there.
