At Fashion for Good, we're on a mission to transform the fashion industry into a circular and sustainable industry. We do this by accelerating and scaling innovation. Scaling innovation, however, is a long and complex journey which requires all stakeholders — innovators, brands, supply chain partners, investors, and consumers — to play their roles and to walk the talk.
Fashion for Good has teamed up with Spring Lane Capital to help unlock the capital needed to scale sustainable innovation in the textile industry. This report aims to enhance innovators’ understanding of relevant industry stakeholders and ultimately assists in further enabling the scaling of much needed innovation.
The fashion industry faces a critical waste problem, as the majority of our garments are discarded and contribute to textile waste, which is in turn responsible for resource depletion, pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions. Both mechanical and chemical recycling offer potential solutions. Chemical recycling, in particular, offers the possibility for high-value recycling and gives us a better chance at solving fashion’s ugly waste problem.
Fashion for Good launches new pilot with brand partners adidas, Inditex, Target and Zalando, and footwear recycling innovator FastFeetGrinded to test and validate the innovative footwear recycling process to support the uptake of recycled content in footwear, driving the change towards a more circular footwear industry.
