Where are we on the path towards textiles circularity?

Latest developments geared towards the creation of a circular value chain for textiles will be highlighted at the BIR Textiles Division meeting to be held in Copenhagen on May 29. Experts will also look to identify the main obstacles still blocking the path to circularity.

 

Members of the divisional board will be joined in their discussions by a number of guest contributors, notably Cyndi Rhoades who founded Worn Again in 2005 (later to become Worn Again Technologies) and who is also a co-Founder of World Circular Textiles Day which takes place each year on October 8 with the aim of reflecting and reporting on progress towards achieving the goal of full textiles circularity by 2050.

 

 

 

Other high-profile guests will include: Robert van de Kerkhoffformer Chief Commercial Officer at well-known fibre producer Lenzing;

 
 
 
 
 

 

and Maud HardyManaging Director of the French extended producer responsibility organization for textiles ReFashion.

 

 

 The meeting in Copenhagen will also flag up the array of commercial challenges facing textiles recyclers at present, including rising operational costs, transportation issues, intense competition and testing legislation.
