The European Clothing Action Plan – ECAP – is an exciting project that will bring environmental and economic benefit to the clothing sector. Its approach encompasses sustainable design, production, consumption, public procurement, collection, recycling and reprocessing. The project focuses on the clothing supply chain, specifically to reduce waste and to bring about effective waste recovery.
Retailers, brands, suppliers, public sector, re-use and recycling organisations, and charities are encouraged to commit to a target-based plan that is supported by a consumer campaign to change behaviour. Within this project, participants will have the opportunity to develop a more circular approach to reducing clothing waste across Europe.
Period of the project: 01.10.2015 – 31.03.2019
For building a circular economy Boer Group supports ECAP in collecting, sorting and recycling projects.
