The innovative cotton circularity project - supported by CRDC, Cotton Australia, Goondiwindi Cotton, Sheridan, Coreo and Thread Together - to return shredded natural fibres to cotton farms featured on Network Ten News this week. The project is the first step towards finding a scalable solution to the massive global problem of textile waste.
The Summer 2023-24 edition of Spotlight has a focus on Clever Cotton, collaboration and the circular economy. We take a deep dive into circularity, which is one of CRDC’s new investment areas under Clever Cotton. In particular, we look at the end-of-life management of cotton garments and fabrics and how returning them to the soil in cotton fields may be a solution to Australia’s textile waste problem.
