"The idea is to retain as much of their value as possible and so reduce, and if possible, exclude, the need for virgin materials. This means looking at the whole life cycle of a product—from raw material sourcing through use to disposal after use—to determine where we can minimise the amount of virgin materials involved and how we can limit its environmental, economic, and social impact," writes van Beijeren in an article in the hard bound fifth edition of the Sustainability Compendium - ‘Going Circular’ brought out by Fibre2Fashion.
"Within the circular economy, our challenge is to explore and identify where in the life cycle we can reduce the impact of a product. Is it in replacing resources by using preferred fibres? Or is it in lowering the ‘cost per use’ of a garment by improving its durability?" asks van Beijeren in his article 'Need for circular processes'.
