Fashion for Good launches Sorting of Circularity project

Fashion for Good has announced the Sorting of Circularity project, which aims to use technology to drive fiber recycling.

This initiative uses improved near-infrared technology to perform comprehensive textile waste analysis and also maps the capabilities of textile recyclers.

The project aims to ultimately lead to the creation of an open digital platform for matching textile waste from sorters with recyclers.

“The purpose of the 18-month project is to create a greater connection between textile sorters and textile recyclers. It stimulates the recycling market for unwanted textiles, which has the potential to generate new sources of revenue for sorters. “Fashion for Good’s managing director, Katrin Ley, said in the release.

“Traditionally, the sorting industry generates income through the sale of reusable textiles, the rest being downcycled, incinerated, or landfilled.

“Achieving a circulation system requires a new end market for non-reusable textiles with infrastructure and digital matching systems that can support the activities of sorters and recyclers.”

The Sorting of Circularity project is facilitated by brands such as Adidas, Bestseller and Zalando, along with Inditex as an external partner. Meanwhile, Fashion for Good partners Arvind Limited, Birla Cellulose, Levi Strauss & Co., Otto and PVH Corp are part of a broader working group.

The findings of the initiative will be available on a digital platform for matching textile waste from sorters with recyclers, leading to a more sustainable foundation for future circulation.
