waste + Recycling
Recycling v. Circularity
Recycling will not make the textile industry circular, and it won't become circular without recycling. A "circular" system balances human, environmental, and economic value. To get there with textiles we need better design, different consumption patterns, new business models, and recycling.
REvolve is mapping textile waste, recycling infrastructure, stakeholders, needs, and gaps so we can develop a new circular system. That system will use a realistic amount of resources and keep them in circulation for as long as possible. It will also prioritize good actors and transparent transactions.
We work with private clients and consortia to map resources and develop circular connections.
