“We can reach the climate goals and protect biodiversity only if we switch from the old "take, make and waste" model to the circular economy that keeps valuable materials in use, creates regenerative solutions and prevents leakage of carbon and toxic materials. In the CE Team, we are working hard to change linear facts like: a garbage truck full of textiles is wasted every second!”
