It’s time for textiles and fashion to address our challenges head on and achieve real, tangible solutions for a circular future.
Because no single company can move the entire industry alone, Circle Economy and Recover have designed a cotton recycling pilot to help leading brands and retailers achieve their near-term commitments and address key barriers to recycling post consumer textiles at scale.
This project is specifically designed to create products that meet performance expectations, increase supply chain experience with mechanically recycled cotton, define cost drivers and reduction strategies for recycling post-consumer textiles and address potential chemical safety issues in the end product.
Participation for brands, retailers and suppliers is fee-based. Knowledge and resource partners provide expertise, materials and other resources to the project in-kind. More details on project participant roles and buy-in options are available through the link below.
One of the key benefits of this work is open access to project findings. Regular updates, industry reference documents and the final report will be publicly available to ensure participation and investment in this work raise the bar for the future. Reference documents will detail input materials specifications, performance and chemical testing outcomes and other relevant details.
This is a powerful opportunity to take recycled cotton to the next level. Join us to get recycled post-consumer products in-hand and be recognised for taking the industry a big step forward.
