Join RILA and RILA’s Retail Innovation Center for a discussion on with industry experts on what’s still needed to make meaningful progress towards textile circularity, including actionable opportunities for industry collaboration.
Marisa Adler with Resource Recycling Systems (RRS) will discuss their upcoming "Textile Recovery in the U.S.: A Roadmap to Circularity" white paper and moderate a Q&A with initiative and retail representatives from Accelerating Circularity and the National Recycling Consortium for Fashion, two industry collaborations addressing key gaps in textile circularity, before opening to audience questions.
Attendees will learn:
• Key findings from RRS’s upcoming "Textile Recovery in the U.S.: A Roadmap to Circularity" white paper, including trends in retail textile goalsetting and textile circularity information and investment gaps
• How two industry initiatives: Accelerating Circularity and the National Recycling Consortium for Fashion are attempting to solve for the missing links in the textile circularity value chain and how retailers can get involved
• How retail collaborators involved in these two initiatives decided to engage as part of their broader textile sustainability strategies
