Ryan Yasin Wins September Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award!

Thu, 02 November 2017

Ryan Yasin won September's Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award for his business, Petit Pli.
Petit Pli’s mission is to reduce waste and consumption in fashion. Petit Pli’s products perfectly mirror a child’s rate and direction of growth. Children grow seven sizes in their first two years, leading to vast amounts of wasted clothing. Petit Pli’s products enable customers to buy one garment instead of seven which means, that for every Petit Pli garment purchased, up to six conventional garments would no longer require purchasing. Thus, reducing manufacture, labour and transportation carbon emissions and end of life waste by 600%.
Commiserations to Nathan Edwards (CDB Design & Build), Sam Patchitt (YellowLabel Technology), Tristan Pulford (Airshare Transfers) and Martina Zupan (Alterwaste) who were shortlisted but did not win this time and are encouraged to reapply.
