the foundation to
ensure as much clothing as possible
is designed to be recycled'
The founders of the Circular Textiles Foundation come from a garment design and manufacture background.
Aware of the environmental impacts of bulk manufacturing, they looked at how to improve the way things were done.
Quickly realising that switching to using recycled materials was simply not enough if that garment could not be recycled at end of use, they identified the need for fibre to fibre recycling technologies.
From this, the Project Plan B fibre to fibre mechanical extrusion technology was developed, and alongside it all the learnings and research was used to create the Circular Textiles Foundation.
The Circular Textiles Foundation supports the work of fibre to fibre recycling technologies by guiding brands and manufacturers to ensure that clothing is designed to be suitable for recycling in their systems.
The Circular Textiles Foundation aims to increase awareness and understanding by sending out clear messaging to consumers and brands so that everyone can clearly understand the impact of their choices whether they are a consumer, a designer or a buyer, and crucially, understand where a product will end up at end of use.
