Biomimicry by Nicole Miller - Sustainability Defined
“Mimicking nature might be the plan for your Halloween costume (trick or treating is so close!), but looking to nature is also increasingly seen as a way to solve problems and innovate both in life and business. Biomimicry is a burgeoning field that involves finding sustainable solutions to certain challenges by emulating nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies. Innovators have found solutions to real-world problems through the study of the shape of a bird's beak, the hide of an armadillo, and the fins of a humpback whale. We'll dive into cool examples and how you can learn to apply the principles of biomimicry both in your own life with the help of our expert guest, Nicole Miller, Managing Director at Biomimicry 3.8”

This podcast digs into this concept and what nature already provides for us on our day to day problems we are developing to fix.
