Prof. Rebecca Earley,

Co-director of Centre for Circular Design - University of Arts London

"I love the Resortecs vision of a new material innovation driving a whole system change. They were quick to realize that bringing new materials to market is one thing, but enabling the industry to properly use it is another thing altogether. They have a great concept, have a lot to offer, but a large mountain to climb! I want to help them in any way I can really – as they perfectly represent the next generation of thinkers and doers who will be the ones that will make the industry circular."
