I:CO stands for "I collect." The I:CO system is as follows: We can all give back our discarded clothing, shoes, or accessories such as belts or bags to the places we bought them. Worldwide I:CO provides the infrastructure to ensure that the valuable raw materials from these old textiles enter a closed loop production cycle and remain there. From collection to recycling, consumer goods are recycled and put to a new use. Fashion Positive partners with I:CO for systems take-back of garments as a critical element of Cradle to Cradle circular economy for fashion and textiles.
