New report released by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation
One garbage truck of textiles is wasted every second.
This week the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, together with Stella McCartney, announced the release a new report titled A new textiles economy - Redesigning fashion’s future.
We want to help spread the word about the availability of this report and thank the Circular Fibres Initiative for its work to create a better future for the textile industry.
The report finds that “the equivalent of one garbage truck of textiles is wasted every second, while less than 1% of clothing is recycled into new clothes.”
“If nothing changes, the fashion industry will consume a quarter of the world’s annual carbon budget by 2050.”
The report lays out a positive vision for a new textiles economy. You can download the report using this link.
