Circular Economy refers to a production and consumption model where wastes are minimal and are reused. This can address great environmental and social challenges of modern society.
Transition towards a Circular Economy in the European textiles and clothing sector is already happening with ever efficient productions driven by high standards, high costs and legal requirements.
Today, hundreds of European textile and apparel companies show successful adoption of new business models to compete within a circular economy society. The potential of large scale systemic change is, however, much greater and requires everyone's involvement.
