The story of how Carmen Hijosa is the founder and CEO of Ananas Anam developed Pinatex, a versatile fabric made of Pineapples, is an example of dedication and future-thinking. It was not an over-night success. In fact, it took over a decade of thinking for the product to be usable and scalable.
The fabric is a vegan alternative. It is Fair Trade. It is pesticide-free. It is biodegradable. It is a sustainable fabric. It is flexible. Enjoy this TEDX video, where she details the challenges she faced.
