Circular business models are on the rise in the apparel and textile industry, but how will this impact the cotton sector and cotton farmers in particular?
Historically, businesses have followed a ‘take-make-waste’ linear model. Beyond consumer use, there have been few systems in place to ensure the original value of products and materials is maintained. Circular business models on the other hand are regenerative and aim to eliminate waste and ensure the continual use of resources.
On Thursday 11 March, BCI will be joined by Nicole Bassett, Co-Founder of The Renewal Workshop, to explore circular businesses in action and their positive contributions to long-term sustainability. We will also dive into the questions that arise on how circularity might impact the cotton sector and cotton farming communities in the future.
