Can an EPR scheme be a silver bullet to tackle textile overproduction?

‎Regularly, our Secretary General Lutz Walter shares his insights and knowledge through his blogposts, covering a wide range of topics related to textile sustainability and innovation. Follow his blog to gain a deeper understanding of the challenges that the textile industry is facing today.

The fashion industry is one of the biggest contributors to textile waste, but can the future EU Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) scheme really be THE solution? 👕

In his blog, our Secretary General Lutz Walter takes a second look at the EPR and its effectiveness in tackling textile waste and creating a more sustainable future for the fashion industry.

'The textile economy is too complex [...] for silver bullets to deliver magical quick solutions. EPR will be but one tool in a rich toolbox [...] that are needed to transform this industry (and its consumers) that mostly grew out of an era where the sustainability concerns of today were largely unknown'.
