NOTTINGHAM – Academics at Nottingham Trent University (NTU) have developed a new circularity toolkit in a bid to support the fashion and textile industries’ sustainability push.  

The Clothing Durability Dozen toolkit, developed as part of the Defra-funded research project ‘Strategies to Improve Design and Testing for Clothing Longevity’, outlines 12 approaches companies can look to explore in order to “improve sustainability across the entire garment lifecycle”.

Senior lecturer Angharad McLaren, who’s organised a web launch of the tool next month, told us: “Fashion is known to be one of the worst performing industries in terms of its environmental impact, and legislation to make the industry assume responsibility for clothing waste appears imminent. They need to exploit the opportunities that are emerging to capture value from discarded clothing.”
