Is Sustainable Fashion Really Scalable? | Fashion & technology | Scoop.it

Some industry leaders have postulated a future with no need to grow raw cotton and a fashion industry that thrives on recycled and upcycled materials alone. While the point where we’ll negate the need for fresh raw materials is likely a long way off, not to mention questionable as a benchmark of sustainability, the proportion of sustainably sourced materials that go into our apparel and footwear is already growing rapidly.

H&M Takes a Step Toward Circularity With a Collection of Garments Made From Waste

H&M Takes a Step Toward Circularity With a Collection of Garments Made From Waste | Fashion & technology | Scoop.it

H&M proposed one solution last month: Looop, a machine in its Stockholm store that shreds old garments into new ones over the course of five hours. “The purpose of it is to engage our customers and help them understand their old garments have value,” explains Pascal Brun, H&M’s head of sustainability. “It’s also about making sure they experience the process of recycling, so it triggers behavioral change.” Looop is still in its early stages, so its capabilities are limited; it likely can’t recycle blended materials, which are difficult to separate, and zippers or hardware might pose a challenge. But Brun says they’re improving it day by day, so Looop will eventually be able to recycle many types of fibers and garments.
