The #iamcarbonpositive Movement is to help the garment industry offset their carbon without spending as much as $20,000 for the required full production supply chain assessment.
EXAMPLE COST AUD$20.10 FOR TEN GARMENTS.
It costs as little as $20.10 to offset a tonne of CO2-e that equates to 10 "regular" garments and includes anything from Tshirts, to bridal, school uniforms, work wear, even heavy wool suits.
We help you calculate your estimated carbon and make a tax deductible donation to plant and protect the required number of trees to sequester your carbon, plus actively promote and share your commitment to climate action.
The Circular Centre have worked with ....... to support any sized garment making business to easily and cost-effectively calculate and then offset their carbon.
The Movement is designed to help you communicate your #iamcarbonpositive status to your customers and encourage a groundswell of support so everyone can offset their entire wardrobe and support #positivefashion. When your business joins we send a Marketing and PR Kit, swing tags and work with you to cross-promote your brand.

As a proud garment industry member who supports the environment your first step is to read the recommendations put forward by the United Nations Fashion Industry for Climate Action. This will give you the base understanding of where you fit in this circular community and foresee what we need to achieve together.
To take these steps together and to join our Movement we ask you to sign the Charter for Climate Action and display your commitment to action on your website. Please share this link with us so we can also shout out to our community.
We acknowledge that it can take some time for the fashion industry to transition to true sustainable and circular design practices which is why we've created STSC and the Circular Centre.
By signing the Charter and joining our Movement you are taking proactive steps towards positive change throughout all aspects of your fashion supply chain. We encourage action that includes the ethical treatment, safe working conditions and correct wages for garment industry workers, the use of safe, natural biodegradable materials, dyes and fabrics, using sustainable design practices, taking action to create circular re-purposing systems such as the Circular Textile Waste Service, supporting initiatives such as mending workshops and swaps, and create garments that support people and the planet.
The #iamcarbonpositive Movement is to help fashion designers take climate action by offsetting the carbon associated in the manufacturing and shipping of their garments. You can also offset company cars, flights, events or e-commerce deliveries online.
