CAMPBELL HALL, N.Y. — May 31, 2023 — Accelerating Circularity’s mission is to catalyze new supply chains and business models to turn spent textiles into mainstream raw materials. The Accelerating Circularity Playbook is designed as an introductory guide for stakeholders to implement circular systems to drive the diversion of millions of tons of textile waste from landfills and incineration.
“Circularity is a team sport which is why a Playbook as a how-to guide makes sense. It is intended to facilitate and expedite circular systems” said founder Karla Magruder, ACP founder, and president. “We have been working with 100+ value chain members in both the USA and Europe to catalyze new collaborations and pilot textile-to-textile recycling. The circular system pilot trials are at standard industry MOQ’s in categories representing t-shirts, denim, fleece, workwear, and towels. Our focus is on post-consumer textiles as we believe they are too good to waste. ”
Circularity 23 is sponsored by GreenBiz as the leading convening of professionals building the circular economy with thought-provoking keynotes, actionable breakouts, and a solutions-oriented expo with networking opportunities. Accelerating Circularity Founder, Karla Magruder, Sarah Coulter, Director of Operations, and ACP board member, Steve Bethel, founder of Bank & Vogue, Shelly Gottshamer, CEO Treadletree consulting on the project, along with trial partners from Cone Denim, Parkdale Mills, Unifi, Sortile, and Goodwill Industries will be there to discuss the textile-to-textile recycling playbook on June 7th.
