ECAP-onderzoek: Used Textile Collection in European Cities : final report
The European Clothing Action Plan (ECAP) has the overall aim of reducing clothing waste across Europe and embedding a circular economy approach into Europeans’ provision, access to and consumption of clothing. One of the work packages under ECAP aims to reduce clothing waste to landfill and incineration by increasing collection, reuse and recycling of post-consumer clothing. Engagement with municipalities is a key element in this. As a first stage in this work package we have studied practices in six cities across Europe and drawn out findings that can inspire municipalities elsewhere.
