More than 70% of the fibers used globally to make clothes end up in landfill or are burned. It is one of the effects of an economic model based on the typical take-make-waste scheme made anachronistic by the scarcity of materials and energy.
The alternative is a responsible production and consumption model based on sharing, reuse, reconditioning, recycling, innovation also in terms of design.
Once the product has fulfilled its function, the materials are reintroduced into the economic cycle, generating new value.
Protagonists and main activities
