“It’s not just about recycling textiles; it’s about creating a system where everything works in a circular loop rather than the outdated take-make-throw system.”

 

In this discussion, Drishti illuminates the project’s goals, including tackling the technical and economic challenges of establishing a circular textile economy. She emphasizes the importance of long-term vision in sustainability, showcasing how the New Cotton Project, another EU-funded project that concluded recently, has paved the way by turning post-consumer cotton textiles into new fibres, thus demonstrating the potential of a circular economy.
