Challenges

Fiber to fashion to recycle

 

Environmental impact (EI)- carbon emission, water pollution, excessive resource consumption, human plight,  begin  from  fibre cultivation/ production exponentially  growing   yarn production,  fabric making  to fashion, use phase and disposal.

Optimal resources consumption/recycling   each value chain. Evaluation start form fiber  cultivation/ production. College university level evaluation include students total environment impact during course. What has been added by him or what idea has come to reduce EI of  previous chain.

After sale phase  EI during laundering energy, water consumption, microbe release  proportionally included to  every stake holder's contribution in damaging environment. After use garment collection to deliver to re FASHION designing units added to the seller’s account.

Marketer contribution to be accessed how much customer convinced to be ethical/using recycle design consumption.

CHALLENGES: consumer education to pay extra for environment, recycling cloth redesigning inventory, Production - consumption  - recycle mismatch.

Technology for networking from fibre to recycle and how many time it could recycle till filling to cushion/pillow.

Piloting project for a city . Indicator how much clothes waste has been reduced

Fashion students  volunteer  for each value chain a ground experience of how each value chain affecting  environment.

  • Hi Keshav! Am I right in thinking that the students will be doing an environmental audit of the supply chain for textile companies? Will there be a consideration of the social impacts of producing the garments?

  • Hi Kate,
    Thanks! Let me clarify
    1. Students aware sustainable garment value chain form "Fiber to Fashion to recycle". Fashion Institute, Textile Institute, Management institute have great role to play.
    2. A city adopted as pilot project, where these Circle Intern collect data of retail store, clothing consumption per person, land fill for sustainable value chain audit.
    3. Spread awareness among
    a.clothing store for old cloth collection program.
    b. consumer to GO ETHICAL
    4. Partner with logistics to send collected cloths to fashion recycle store
    5. Audit at the end of project period How much cloths reduction in land fill carbon footprint, water pollution equivalent to Number of Tree required to be planted for absorbing this carbon di oxide.
    6. Recognition of Store, Circle Intern for the Reduction of Carbon Foot Print/Tree Planted by Them.
    7. Audit by adopting agency, refine idea for implementation.
