CIRCULAR DENIM has two circular systems created to capture and divert the good, the bad and downright ugly denim before it's sent to landfill.
Two circular steams:
1. PROJECT BASED:
We create opportunities to divert denim for reuse and redesign through projects such as the upcoming collaboration with General Pants on Australia's Largest Denim Redesign Project + Competition open to designers and fashion students Australia-wide.
We work with fashion labels who have denim waste to divert, or who wish to offer their customers a take-back service or want some denim to use for redesign into "new" collections? Read in CC News.
2. DIVERTED VIA THE CTWS:
We collect denim via the Circular Textile Waste Service working with Councils, businesses and community groups. Its then transported to our nearest disability enterprise partners.
The teams sort and redistribute through various streams including for stream one to redistribute to designers, fashion students and charities who repair, reuse, recycle, redesign and resell this valuable resource. See below.
ENSURING IT CONTINUES TO STAY OUT OF LANDFILL.
Where possible we include a QR Code so when the "new" product or garment becomes "waste" we encourage the owner to return and pay a nominal amount to ensure it stays out of landfill and is processed through the Circular Textile Waste streams and become repurposed into other high quality products such as carpet, underlay, good trims to Worne.World or metal scrap.
We currently collect denim as part of Australia's first Circular Textile Waste Service with Mosman City Council.
