Ellen MacArthur and Stella McCartney launch A new textiles economy: Redesigning fashion’s future
On November, 28, 2017, Ellen MacArthur and Stella McCartney co-hosted the launch in London of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s latest report, “A new textiles economy: Redesigning fashion’s future”. The report, created by the Circular Fibres Initiatives, which launched in May, calls on the fashion industry to adopt a new vision and ambition level and create cross industry collaborations to achieve it. The Report outlines a vision and sets out ambitions and actions, based on the principles of a circular economy, to design out negative impacts and capture a USD 500 billion economic opportunity by truly transforming the way clothes are designed, sold and used.
“Today’s textiles industry is built on an outdated linear, take-make-dispose model and is hugely wasteful and polluting. The Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s report “A new textiles economy: Redesigning fashion’s future” presents an ambitious vision of a new system, based on circular economy principles, that offers benefits to the economy, society and the environment. We need the whole industry to rally behind it” (Ellen MacArthur).
