Roles and Reach for Circular Fashion Change Agents

Who does what in circular fashion? Many great groups are working on circular fashion from multiple angles and at various scales. Let’s take some time to map out how these activities connect and support one another. How might material innovators be collaborating with apparel collectors and recyclers?
