The clothing and textile industry is the second largest polluter in the world, behind big oil. But it doesn't have to be this way. Circularity in fashion
is a viable alternative to replace the take-make-waste
model with a recover-recycle-reuse
model. This generates added value, because it turns waste into materials that can be reinjected into the value chain. Companies across many industrial sectors are adopting circular economy
principles, including Enel X
. As a part of this commitment, Enel X and its partners have launched in 2021 the Monitor for Circular Fashion
to promote a sustainable production and consumption model in the clothing industry. The fashion world can be a trend-setter not just on the catwalks, but in the fight against climate change too.
