Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Have you ever wondered where your clothes go when you throw them away or donate them? Where is away, where do they go? Well, we've got answers! We've written a collaborative White Paper on the state of apparel waste in our region. Textile waste is now estimated to be the fastest growing waste stream in North America (Niinimaki and Hassi, 2011). Locally our landfills are full and our policymakers are looking to make changes.

Brought to by:

We pulled together over 25 different organizations to learn and advise policymakers on any upcoming policy changes. The paper is titled: Reducing Apparel waste to Disposal: An industry perspective. In it, we've mapped out the stocks and flows and have pointed directly at the challenges and potential opportunities and now we'd like to share with YOU what we've learned.

Participants

WHAT

Leverage CAMP is for anyone in the textile industry or who has a stake in or is impacted by the textile supply chain. We will be giving you all access to the White Paper and will be walking you through our learnings. Additionally, we will explore how a collaborative process like Leverage Lab could help us achieve greater levels of apparel waste diversion in the future and who might be interested in joining.

This White Paper will help your business identify areas to:

  • turn your apparel waste into a resource
  • cut costs and improve practices and competitiveness
  • be acknowledged as an innovative brand
  • recruit and retain top talent
  • join the circular economy
  • push the boundaries of what business can accomplish for our communities and the environment

Together with our friends and allies, we will then celebrate the work we have done to date, with a Beverage Lab.

AGENDA

3:00-5:00 - Apparel industry stakeholders learn Whitepaper discoveries and workshop collaborative next steps

5:00-7:00 - Networking Social Beverage Lab to celebrate success and learn about next steps - all welcome
