About this resource
This groundbreaking summary shows the negative impacts of the current unsustainable texiles industry and provides a guidance on how we could transition towards a circular economy model. The report highlights how there is a need for new business models, technological innovation, global education and collaboration amongst all the sectors and policy makers to reimagine textiles production.
Why we recommend this resource
We all use textiles in our everyday life. The textile industry is providing employment to hundreds of millions of people across the world and often makes shopping for clothes more affordable and accessible to everyone. However, the current model of production creates waste, pollutes our environment and in some instances abuses workers’ rights. Exploring this report will help you understand these issues in depth, but it will also demonstrate what a circular textile economy that doesn’t negatively impact the environment or exploit its workforce might look like, providing a hopeful framework for the future of fashion.
