Target promotes circular fashion design

By Global Fashion Agenda

Our strategic partner Target is exploring ways to design for circularity as part of their work with the 2020 Circular Fashion System Commitment.

Their targets for 2020 include aiming for zero operational waste, empowering consumers to lead waste-free lives and closing more loops in its supply chain through new business models and infrastructure.

Target, which is working toward a waste-free world where we can make the greatest financial and societal impact by circulating materials at their highest value, has also committed to:

Textile innovation: By 2020, Target will invest US$1 million in textile recycling technologies, with the goal of accelerating the transition to a circular apparel industry.

Durability: By 2020, all Target-owned brand apparel will be designed for functional durability to last the life cycle of the product.
