Ten projects have been granted the new funding boost

Clothes designed to grow as children age to prevent waste are being backed by new funding from the Government and Sky.

London company Petit-Pli is one of ten projects given a funding boost to find solutions to fight plastic pollution and reduce waste.

Other projects backed by the Government-Sky Ocean Ventures partnership includes Naturebeads, which is developing a biodegradable alternative to microbeads and Edinburgh-based Choose Water which is developing a carbon neutral water bottle made from 100% natural materials.

Andrea Leadsom, business secretary, said: “Trailblazing UK businesses are giving us all the choice to buy more sustainable clothing, packaging and cosmetics that are better for our environment.

“Consumers have shown they are keen for green and we’re committed to championing those innovative companies that lead the way in this, protecting the planet while at the same time opening up huge opportunities for the UK economy.”

The green economy is expected to grow up to 2 million jobs by 2030.
