With the new Waste Law, the disposal of excess clothes is no longer an option for the fashion industry and retailers. Tekstila provides a viable way to manage the unwanted apparel derived from the overproduction of clothing that remains unsold.
Main changes in the law
The new regulations advocate for circular economy strategies. They aim to encourage more sustainable business models that can reduce the environmental burden and leave behind single-use disposable products, including fashion.
The new policies have had a considerable impact on the textile industry. The destruction of unsold textile goods will be banned from 2022. In 2024, collecting post-consumption textile materials will be mandatory across the European Union. This will involve the recovering of these materials to give them a ‘second life’ through recycling or reusing.
The destruction of unsold clothing is considered a serious breach of the Law on Waste and Soils.
The new law secures greater accountability of all key players in the fashion value chain, from providers, suppliers, manufacturers and special apparel brands in fast fashion. They will be hard-pressed to adapt quickly to the new challenges. The agenda for sustainable development which underpins these policies are expected to culminate in 2030, with the creation of a recycling association like Ecoembes in Spain, dedicated to clothing. For now, we have already seen initiatives such as the Catalan Circular Fashion Pact.
