Every year 100 billion new items of clothing are produced. Meanwhile, a truck full of clothing is burned or buried in a landfill every single second. Slowing down fast fashion is a step in the right direction but it isn’t going to stop waste. But circular fashion (recycling materials to make new products) is making sustainable fashion a reality.
Teemill products are made from natural materials and designed to be returned when they're worn out. The waste material is then used to make new products so the complete circle can be made again and again.
Teemill has taken circular fashion a step further with technology that allows anyone with an internet connection to use their systems, for free, and start their own brand.
Rob Drake-Knight, co-founder at Teemill Tech, said: “Teemill technology enables people to participate in the fashion economy who want to be part of the solution, not part of the problem. We expect to see the sustainable fashion trend continue to grow as people make ever more mindful day-to-day decisions, and as technology and access improves.”
