TINTEX Textiles is proud to activate change industry wide by taking part in the Make Fashion Circular initiative by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. This initiative aims to collaborate and innovate towards a new textiles economy, based on the principles of a circular economy. Ellen MacArthur Foundation core partners, Burberry; Gap Inc.; H&M; HSBC, NIKE, Inc.; and Stella McCartney will work with the foundation to radically redesign the fashion industry. The initiative is made possible with the support of C&A Foundation and Walmart Foundation.
At present, 16 stakeholders, including city authorities, fashion producers, designers, and brands have joined forces to transform the current state of fashion and rectify its negative impact. All participants involved in the Make Fashion Circular initiative will unite to improve future systems that will benefit earth’s inhabitants, the environment, and businesses based on three key principles:
1. Business models that extend the lifecycle of clothes
2. Materials that are renewable and safe
3. Smart solutions that turn used clothes into new clothes
In addition to TINTEX Textiles, fashion leaders already on board include; DuPont Biomaterials, Fung Group, Hallotex, I:Collect, Inditex, Kering, Lenzing Group, London Waste and Recycling Board, Nanushka, Primark, RadiciGroup, Solvay, Texaid, VF Corporation, W.L. Gore and Associates.
We invite you to join fashion industry leaders to uphold this fantastic initiative and help drive momentum towards the vision for a circular economy for fashion, first set forth by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s 2017 report A New Textiles Economy: Redesigning Fashion’s Future. Together we will deliver the solutions needed to meet the changing demands and expectations of society, as well as address issues that have allowed the fashion industry to become one of the most polluting and wasteful operating today. Thank you.
