Creating a circular zero-waste textile economy is one of the hottest topics for the textile industry in the coming years. Small and big textile companies are working on the development of circular systems. However, there are still many challenges to overcome from the development of fully biodegradable or permanently technically recyclable materials to organizing post-consumer recovery systems, new business models such as leasing and transparent material declaration. During the OSCE Days 2015, we want to work on challenges around circular textiles simultaneously in the different cities worldwide and share our findings and ideas.

Challenges

  1. Materials
  2. Design & Production
  3. Use Phase
  4. Recovery
