Print your clothes in 2050

By on March 26, 2013

Sometimes you must be ambitious in imagining the future: that’s what Joshua Harris did with the clothing industry:

As production and agriculture are being moved closer to cities, there is a massive upheaval in how we obtain the things we need to live.  Thanks to new technology and innovative thinking, urban gardens, a connected global network and private replication technologies, consumers  have more power to stay close to home.  one major opportunity we identified was a revamp of  the clothing industry.  We found the clothing industry to be an extremely wasteful and inefficient use of our resources. Clothing is shipped to several different places before being distributed to the consumer.  Also, its lifespan is only a few years before being either disposed of or re-purposed.
