An interview with Lauren Smith #cleantech

Thank you to Lauren Smith, founder of PolyGone Technologies, for sharing your story with us. PolyGone Technologies is developing innovative methods to capture microfibres within the washing machine and beyond - saving you from eating your dirty laundry.


PolyGone Technologies is a cleantech startup solving microplastic pollution by preventing the release of the largest contributor - microfibres. These plastic threads are released during the washing of synthetic textiles and have been found in 83% of the world's tap water. Lauren, and her team at PolyGone Technologies, is working to capture microfibres before they enter waterways, before they collect pollutants, and before they enter our food.

Women are powerful drivers of economic growth, and their economic empowerment benefits all nations. Women’s March Canada supports the dismantling of economic barriers that obstruct women’s full and equal access to local, national, and global economic systems.

We believe that every person and every community in our nation has the right to clean water, clean air, and access to and enjoyment of public lands. We believe that our environment and our climate must be protected and that our land and natural resources cannot be exploited for corporate gain or greed - especially at the risk of public safety and health.
