The Baltic states have potential to create a circular textile system together with Nordic countries, a new report with PlanMiljøs David Watson as lead author concludes, but significant action is needed by policymakers and industry stakeholders if this potential is to be realized.
“Collection infrastructure in the Baltic countries is at a less developed stage than in the Nordics,” said David Watson from PlanMiljø, “on the other hand, the lower costs of labour, large scale processing facilities for imported used textiles and the skilled workforce present many of the necessary ingredients for a significant circular textile economy.”
