A broad apparel industry coalition is taking the issue of textile waste head on as the industry continues to explore the next generation of textiles. The apparel industry group has launched a new collaborative project under the banner of Accelerating Circularity, with a mandate of eliminating textile waste in the supply chain. We are proud to be part of it.
Accelerating Circularity’s mission is to design and implement commercial systems in which textile waste is repurposed as raw material through reuse and recycling, and therefore ensure that they are not incinerated or sent to landfills. Accelerating circularity’s goals are clear:
- Define a functioning cost-effective circular textile supply chain model.
- Identify the potential for commercial products based on a cost-effective circular textile supply chain.
- Provide the textile supply chain with a model for implementing systems to create circular supply chains.
- Targeted Results textile waste becomes raw materials and no longer is incinerated or sent to landfill.
