Fashioning a Circular Economy
There’s no reason why we can’t recycle our textiles and still be fashionable in Philly.
Philadelphia not only now has a fashion district, but it is home to internationally known brands that continue to set trends. But even with this flourishing fashion sector, 85% of all textiles continue to be thrown away.
At Circular Philadelphia, we work with recyclers, tech companies, makers, retailers, second hand stores and donation organizations to ensure that people have the option to find a second or even third life for their clothes as they keep up with the latest fashion trends. We work with designers and manufacturers to optimize supply chains for circularity and minimize production waste.
