What happens to the fashion waste globally?

The conversation of sustainability and conscious consumption has finally reached the doorsteps of fashion consumers.

The challenges of textile waste management in India when turning fashion circular

Reverse Resources had an opportunity to participate in a panel discussion at CAIF Conclave on November 6th 2020 in a discussion about the textile waste management challenges in India.

Yet, the solution may be rather similar - building transparent supply chains with support from digital tools and enabling large-scale collaboration with win-win benefits.
Great thanks to Intellecap to put together such a great illustration of the problem. Looking forward to run a pilot in India to demonstrate RR solution to the full extent!
