We acknowledge that we live and work on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. The University of Waterloo is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River.
You may not know that it takes 2,700 litres of water to make one t-shirt - enough for one person to drink for 900 days.
Now, a technology developed at the University of Waterloo, is making apparel production more sustainable by reducing the amount of water needed from 2700 litres to less than 100 litres.
Join us for a demonstration of this transformational technology and see how clothing manufacturing can take a step towards a more sustainable future.
PS we'll be placing 2700 litres of bottled water next to a t-shirt to give you a visual comparison of water needed to make a t-shirt!
If your schedule permits, you should come!
