New law to control textile waste to be introduced by European Union


eureapun-unionThe European Union will soon introduce a new law to help the industry control its waste issues better, reports Women’s Wear Daily. Titled,’ The EU Textile Strategy, ’ the new law will boost the European Union markets for upcycling and sustainable textiles; address fast fashion, and support business models that promote more circular consumption models. For this strategy, the EU will adopt a holistic approach that engages manufacturers as much as retailers and small enterprises. The strategy will also address the issue of environmental impact. It will consider the fact that most of Europe’s environmental impact occurs in countries outside the EU where the majority of production takes place. The strategy will also address the problem by taxing imports on products coming from countries that don’t follow Sustainable Development Goals or the Paris Agreement.
