Panel: Closing the Loop - how fashion marketplaces are contributing to the circular economy

19 Feb 2024
The Source Catwalk

The fashion industry is one of the main contributors towards landfill waste. Reselling or renting secondhand clothes has the power to reduce waste and increase the lifespan of fashion products and creating a more sustainable use for each item. But there is still plenty of work to be done.

This session will cover:

  • How retailers and brands can educate consumers on the implications of overconsumption
  • Ways in which fashion marketplaces can help to solve consumers' barriers to the circular economy
  • How changing business models can have an impact on consumer behavioural changes
