The fashion industry has far more to environmental issues than waste

Attended the Circular Fashion Conference. I didn’t realise the extent of the environmental impacts of the fashion industry. I was only looking at it from a waste perspective. They have way more work to do to fix the environmental aspects in their design and manufacturing processes first before it even makes it to the landfills.

I think that any business opportunities here (at least that I can see immediately) will take a significant investment and years to achieve some wins. At least they’re trying to address these types of environmental concerns with conferences such as these, but I’m moving on.

Waste in the Fashion Industry

Registered for the Circular Fashion conference in Melbourne. There seems to be a lot of textile waste going to landfill, and I don’t know that much about this industry. I wonder if there might be some business opportunities in this space?
