The Biomimicry Institute is doing exactly what it sounds like: pushing innovation with resources and through processes already available in nature. The institute believes that in this way, our society can build a future that’s friendlier to the environment.
The institute’s principles are fairly straightforward. Look at evolutionary miracles and let them inspire innovation. The Biomimicry Institute video, which is co-presented by celebrity sustainability advocate Leonardo DiCaprio, boasts of innovative startups harnessing ideas from nature and turning them into sustainable products.
