Beth Ranson reports

The 8th of October 2020 was World Circular Textiles Day, an event marked with a webinar to introduce the collective vision of achieving full circularity by 2050. In celebration of the diverse group of people involved in developing this ambitions goal, the event recognised the designers, policy makers, scientists, campaigners, and all individuals who have collaborated so far. With signatories across industry, cooperation and collaboration is gaining momentum.

Circular Design is not without controversy, and this ‘elephant in the room’ was addressed outright. WCTD began by actively inviting the scrutiny of these alternative viewpoints, to problem solve their method. Extending the invitation for involvement across the breadth of lenses involved, WCTD encouraged interruptions to the circularity conversation, so different perspectives can intervene and make an impact.
