TOGETHER, WE CREATE

Making a change towards circularity takes the effort of everyone: the textile industry, certification and legal authorities, media and, last but not least, consumers.

COOPERATIVE

 

Being a member of the CIRCULAR CLOTHING COOPERATIVE implies ownership and commitment – towards a zero-waste textile industry for a better planet. 

Bundling forces of small fashion and textile labels under the roof of CIRCULAR CLOTHING COOPERATIVE is not limited to the Swiss borders. With the aim of contributing to a paradigm shift in the fashion and textile industry we do not limit ourselves to markets, but focus on Europe. 

No label can go circular on its own, but many labels together can make it happen.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE TOGETHER

Our vision is a zero-waste textile industry for a better planet. By creating products that are circular and by waste avoidance, we can make this vision reality. This requires solutions that cover all aspects of the textile product lifecycle: healthy materials, resource-efficient processing without toxins, and fair working conditions.

As a supporter of our cooperative, you can facilitate directly the following projects:extension and digitalization of a certified material library, extension of a certified supply chain, implementation of a digital product passport for maximum transparency from material sourcing, through manufacturing to take-back system.

Make a difference! Become a supporter & help shape the future: More circular & healthy products for everyone!

Your contribution matters!
