Category 1: ‘Fashioning a Circular Future audio’ by Lily Cole
(excerpt length: 1:00, originally recorded in September 2019)
Our love of fashion fuels a global industry, employing millions around the world. But this current system also drives pollution and waste. Circular economy principles offer a way to change this: Instead of our ‘take, make, waste’ model we should be finding ways to make clothes last longer and stay in use; ensuring that materials don’t damage the environment; and ensuring that materials can be recovered and used again. To achieve this, we need to mobilise thousands of designers around the world to help change the system.
