INTRODUCING the world's first fully circular design system for textiles - new & old.
We are the next step beyond RECYCLING, we are fully CIRCULAR. Our true circular solutions start by replacing all synthetic plastic textiles with the world's first Cradle to Cradle® 100% biodegradable stretch yarn blended with natural fibres.
Plus through our Circular Textile Waste Service we capture and divert all textile waste to keep 100% out of any landfill and 100% onshore in Australia and repurpose into high quality products.
Our zero textile waste solutions are for commercial, councils, the fashion and apparel industry plus all eco-warrior businesses and community groups with a minimum quantity of 120kg of unwearable clothing, uniforms, workwear, homewares, bed linen etc plus commercial textile waste. You collect it, and the Circular Centre and our disability enterprise teams and 19+ circular stream partners will do the rest.
Tick off your Sustainability Development Goals and send zero textile waste to landfill including remnants and banners to become Zero Textile Waste Certified.
Councils can offer residents a household collection or use-pay drop-off solution. We take ALL unwearable clothing including their "unmentionables" (its what they used to call underwear) plus socks and bras, unwanted textile homewares and all denim for our Circular Denim project.
Work with us to take your old corporate clothing and workwear to be repurposed plus replace with zero-synthetic textiles.
Zero textile waste solutions maintain IP and offer Destruction Certificates for security.
Promote your sustainability status & offer a user-pay Circular Take-Back Service.
Charge & collect a minimum of 120kg and help your community and customers send zero waste to landfill.
Fashion and apparel labels can safely repurpose deadstock.
Eco-minded groups can work with us to create a local Take-Back Service for your community.
We have created Australia's largest denim take-back and re-design circular system for Students and designers.
Working with TAFE NSW Sydney, students from two fashion courses will use 500+ pieces of denim and enter the Ready-To-Wear CIRCULAR DENIM REDESIGN COMPETITION.
Our Circular Take-Back Services collects all types of denim; the good, bad and downright ugly.
Scraps, rivets and zippers will be returned to our Service so they are reused or repurposed. Designs are sold with a QR Tracing Code
Under the Circular Centre's umbrella STSC, we develop and wholesale textile solutions as the starting point for our Circular Textile Waste Service.
Working with our Mill partners in India, Indonesia, Taiwan and Japan, we have a large range of fabrics for all garment & interior purposes.
Our latest is the world’s first Cradle to Cradle® bio polymer stretch blended with natural fibres Modal, EcoVero and organic cotton. It solves the problem of toxic synthetics in activewear, underwear & uniforms.
We currently have 19 circular streams based around Australia with more coming on board all the time.
Our resource recovery network ensures we send zero to landfill and zero waste overseas keeping the products onshore.
Where possible our products will have a QR code attached to encourage the new user to take back to the seller when done so we can trace the origins and return it to our circular streams or accelerate its decomposition to mitigate further emissions.
We welcome Mosman Council as our first Council to offer residents the Circular Textile Waste Service with the support of NSW EPA. See details on this service.
CIRCULAR PPE offers made-to-order non-surgical isolation gowns and scrubs made from new and unused textiles plus virgin sustainable textiles.
Used garments can be taken and repurposed through the CTWS to ensure we send zero textile waste to landfill.
@circularschools is an initiative with Watson, aged 11, where he and his Mum Alison go to local schools to educate on the circular economy.
We also encourage school P&Cs to purchase wholesale Guppyfriend Washing Bags to re-sell for fundraising and capture the plastic microfibres that are shed when school uniforms are washed.
Empowering the fashion & garment industry to support the #positivefashion Movement & offset carbon emissions from manufacturing & shipping. Invest in 3 key sequestration industries: Australian seaweed, soil & biodiverse native trees
+ take the #positivefashion CHALLENGE to offset your whole wardrobe for $2.10/garment
