Covalent™ is a direct-to-consumer fashion brand that has married high-quality craftsmanship with cutting-edge carbon capture technology to launch the world’s first regenerative, carbon-negative fashion products made with AirCarbon—a biomaterial produced by parent company, Newlight.
What is AirCarbon and how is it tracked by Blockchain? Using renewable energy and saltwater, Covalent uses natural microorganisms found in the ocean to turn air and carbon from greenhouse gas, such as methane and carbon dioxide, into a meltable, moldable biomaterial that can be used to help replace plastic and leather. Every Covalent product is given a unique Carbon Date: this is the time when air and carbon were transformed into the AirCarbon used to make that specific product. With this Carbon Date, the team applies the world’s first IBM blockchain-based carbon tracking technology to track every step of the fabrication process for that product, including its independently verified carbon footprint.
Covalent’s collection of timeless, minimalist essentials include handbags, wallets, and eyewear, and is now available for pre-order. Check out covalentfashion.com for more.
