CIRCULARITY #4 is to assist the fashion and garment designers to design their own Product Stewardship Schemes specific to your unique requirements and plan circular economy system pathways. From students to sustainable development teams this Workshop will propel you to be an industry leader.
Includes linking to Smart Materials Passport and existing circular economy resource recovery solutions - from textiles to new remanufactured circular material streams and linked by RFiD Thread. Delivered in-person and online, attendees will map how to implement a Product Stewardship structure, evaluate timeframes plus how to communicate this to your customers.
We aim to help the industry prepare for the upcoming National Clothing Product Stewardship Scheme as part of the National Waste Policy Action Plan that is coordinated by the Australian Fashion Council in consortium with Charitable Recycling Australia, Queensland University of Technology, Sustainable Resource Use and WRAP.

Circular economy solutions for fashion and uniforms from fibres to resource recovery. Share existing and upcoming solutions for circular design resource recovery including repurposing into new remanufactured circular material streams plus data collection and links to a Smart Materials Passport via RFiD Thread.
This workshop will support leaders in the fashion, apparel and uniforms industry to fully transition to circular economy systems, through existing actionable solutions with recommendations and links to providers plus create opportunities to communicate the circular progress to customers.
Participants will learn from industry experts on topics including integrating circular design methods, creating a textile waste service, source true sustainable and ethical textiles, manufacturing both in Australia and off-shore, calculate emissions and tools to map out a supply chain and use a Smart Materials Passport from fibes to remanufacturing textiles.
