The current linear business model of taking cotton from the earth, making apparel and textiles of it, selling these products, using them as customers…then what?

Historically there have been no systems at the end of the line to ensure original value is maintained. Circular business models are on the rise in the apparel and textile industry – how will this impact the world’s raw cotton? This talk on “The Value of Cotton in the Circular Economy” with Nicole Bassett, Co-Founder of the Renewal Workshop, will explore circular businesses in play, their benefit to resource reduction and long-term sustainability, as well as the questions that arise on how it might impact cotton farmers in the future. Learn more about Nicole Bassett.

Date: Thursday, 11 March 2021
