According to the â€˜Circular
Textiles For A Sustainable Future’, from PCIAW
and Business in the Community (BITC), that
guides the government-backed Textiles 2030 initiative, there would be a massive
cut in textile waste.

The report reviews current principles and practices
in the textile industry and focuses on the present facilities available for
recycling technologies and renewable energy. Textiles account for 10% of global
carbon emissions, 20% of global industrial wastewater pollution and less than
1% of material used in the production of clothing is recycled.

The report looks at the
environmental implications of current textile wastage, alongside ongoing
research and cutting-edge practices that should lead to an increase in
corporate environmental responsibility in future years. It aims to educate
manufacturers, suppliers, buyers and designers in the principles and practices
of circularity in textiles and best practice in the disposal and re-use of
textiles.


The report says that the
textile industry must undertake resource efficiency, end-of-life recyclability
and sustainable development from renewable natural materials to reduce further
damage to the planet.
Manufacturing
locally would reduce waste and stimulate local economies that have been
disrupted by Coronavirus.


Producers must engage in
Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) that includes taking responsibility for
the entire life cycle of a product, like collection, dismantling, recycling and
reusing. It begins with the sourcing of raw materials and includes reducing the
carbon impact of the supply chain and distribution network, and disposal of
garments in landfills.

PCIAW is collaborating with several companies making
eco-conscious professional wear. The association is committed towards
innovation, and steer the direction of the professional clothing industry
towards a sustainable future. Along with BITC, PCIAW is collaborating with
Textiles 2030: Sustainable Textiles Action Plan, WRAP to implement an impactful
and collaborative climate action plan for diverse textile companies in the UK.
