REPORT – Greenpeace releases – Fashion at the crossroads

In the new study "Fashion at the crossroads" presented at Milan Fashion Week, Greenpeace criticizes fashion brands for pledging to move to a circular economy, essentially designing out waste and creating an endless lifecycle for their products. The report is mostly a positive acknowledgement of sustainability initiatives, the research revealed some examples where brands are emphasising recycling, of polyester mostly, without consideration for closing the loop or for slowing down the consumption of raw materials. Sadly, charitable recycling was not featured as a solution. The summary report can be found at this link.
