Scaling circular fashion in North America: Part 1 What could a circular fashion industry look like in 2050? The need for urgent action is clear: While the lifespan of individual garments dwindles, the environmental footprint of the apparel industry continues to grow. But where there’s inefficiency, there’s often opportunity. From renewable and recycled inputs to new business models such as repair, rental and recommerce to end of life management and more — like enabling technologies, policies and partnerships — the apparel industry is ripe for a makeover. Part one of this two-part session explores what the circular fashion industry of 2050 has in store. Experts and innovators share their aspirations for the future of manufacturing, traceability, and fabric innovation. Speakers Cory Skuldt, Associate Director, Corporate Citizenship Beth Esponnette, Cofounder, Unspun Beth Rattner, Executive Director, Biomimicry Institute Debbie Shakespeare, Senior Director Sustainability, Compliance & Core PLM, Avery Dennison Ellie Buechner Tue, 09/01/2020 – 13:02 Featured Off
