BRUSSELS - The RREUSE non-profit network of social enterprises involved in the reuse, repair and recycling sector has published a position paper on the European Union's (EU) Strategy for Sustainable and Circular Textiles.

RREUSE broadly welcomed the strategy, including its recognition of the role of social enterprises in re-use, the introduction of reusability and reparability criteria in design requirements, the proposed ban on the destruction of unsold new goods, and the use of a share of EPR fees for waste prevention and re-use.

But the position paper, by RREUSE's project and advocacy officer Marie-Jeanne Gaertner, also makes recommendations in three key areas - reducing textile overproduction and consumption, decreasing textile waste, and developing circular textile supply chains.
