JOIN US Sept 13 to LEARN MORE: a new collaboration to leverage volume pooling for circularity

Join Fashion Positive’s first-of-its-kind collaborative model

Driving the availability of Cradle to Cradle Certified™ materials in the apparel industry through a volume pooling approach

Fashion Positive invites you to a new workstream—Fashion Positive PLUS—which will harness the expertise of the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute in circular systems and your desire to drive change in the fashion industry.

For us, circularity goes beyond sustainability—it means that materials are more than what you make your product from; they can be intelligent nutrients for future products and systems. It’s a visionary idea and by working together, we can bring it to life.

Joining Fashion Positive PLUS will unlock the power of volume pooling collaboration—that means you can share costs, effort and time with fellow industry leaders in the identification and verification of core, foundational “building block” materials that can be used in finished apparel.

These foundational pieces include pre-competitive materials and suppliers shared amongst companies, including dyes, chemicals, finishings, trims, base fabrics, yarns, and more. Participation in PLUS will increase efficiency, save costs and magnify the positive impact of those materials across the industry. Join us on September 13 to find out which materials we will be targeting. 

We invite you to take action to advance circularity in the fashion industry with the Cradle to Cradle Product Innovation Institute and other fashion industry leaders

The webinar will include:

+ Details about a new opportunity to collaborate and decrease assessment costs and increase access to Cradle to Cradle materials for the circular economy

Introduction of a FREE resource, the C2C Principles Checklist for the Fashion Industry that will allow you to start implementing Cradle to Cradle Certified methodology immediately

+ A chance to learn more about how we see volume pooling as a critical tool for pushing circularity in the apparel industry


Your Webinar Hosts:

  • Lewis Perkins, President of the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute
  • Annie Gullingsrud, Director, Textiles & Apparel Sector at the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute
