Material Exchange invites you to their event

Circularity and sourcing: A Q&A with forward-thinking brands

About this event

Did you know that less than 1% of discarded clothing today is recycled into new clothing? Meanwhile, a truck load of clothing and accessories is either burned or dumped into a landfill every second. The need for change is greater than ever before, and developing circularity within fashion is arguably the most important step toward a more sustainable industry. Join our conversation with some brands who are making big strides when it comes to circularity as we dive into all of YOUR questions on how you can improve your business' operations around this critical concept. Our conversation will provide insights and inspiration around circularity to help you make the changes this planet needs so desperately. Register today!
