    E08: Meet Pyrus. An alternative to tree-based wood made from kombucha waste.

    Today we are learning from Gabe Tavas, the winner of the 2021 US James Dyson Award for his invention, Pyrus, a sustainable material made from kombucha waste. Motivated by the urgency to combat deforestation, the team at Symmetry Wood uses repurposed bacterial cellulose to create an alternative to tree-based wood.  The idea: make wood without cutting down trees. Though still in the early stages of development, they have already used this innovative material to create smaller items such as jewellery and guitar picks. I speak with Gabe from the bustling University of Illinois - you may hear a bit of background noise in this episode - about the inspiration for Pyrus and his plans for the future.

    Today we’re learning from Kai Paul, Head of Manufacturing and Sustainability at Indosole based in Bali. Indosole is a B Corp certified vegan footwear company that uses 100% recycled tires for it’s soles. An idea that came about after Indosole’s Founder, Kyle Parsons, purchased a pair of hand-crafted sandals made from motorbike tires during his first trip to the Indonesian island.  They’ve since scaled up and streamlined the process, collecting tire waste, pulverising it into a powder, and pressing it into new soles with soul, as they like to say. He talks about their company journey, the challenges of using recycled material, and what’s next for Indosole.
