Textiles is one of the world’s most polluting industries – each year, 14,000 tonnes of textiles are thrown away in Amsterdam only. The Amsterdam Pilot will catalyse the transition of Amsterdam’s new textile system through the redesign of textile systems and material flows.
The Amsterdam Pilot will engage citizens through collecting home textiles and clothing. This Pilot will promote sustainable circular textile educational programs for fashion schools and universities through hands-on workshops which upcycle materials.
The Amsterdam Pilot aims to create an exchange system platform. This platform will track and trace materials, valorise the achievement of circular flow and cycles, and incentivise business opportunities through promoting and mapping businesses involved in material recycling.
This Pilot is coordinated by WAAG society, if you want to get involved, please contact email@example.com
