Recycling Textiles Roundtable Discussion

As we become more aware of the need to consider the end of life for our clothes, what will become of our fashion and textiles if we choose to recycle them rather than send them to landfill?

This panel discussion is designed to extend the conversation on the potential benefits of recycled textiles for businesses, fashion and general public. It will draw together voices from various sectors – fashion design and retail, fashion education, local government and emerging recycling businesses, to discuss the opportunities that lie ahead. To explore the objectives of textile recycling and to incentivise fashion consumers – the panel will debate the following questions:

What are the fashion business opportunities for recycled textiles?

How can we use fashion to inspire the general public to embrace textile recycling?

On the Rountable your hosts Rachel Matthews and Debbie Pratt will be joined by Australian fashion experts Thea Speechely (RawAssembly), Meg Parry (Meg Parry Studio), Aleasha McCallion, Michael Elias (Upparel) and Ben Kaminsky (Textile Recyclers Australia).
