As announced at The KEY.TO in Berlin last week, Estonian ethical fashion designer, Reet Aus, has officially launched Trash to Trend, a new upcycling initiative which examines improved solutions for the use of textile waste.
"Reet and her team are building a new platform for the industry where manufacturers and shops can submit information on their industrial leftovers and unsold stockist. Sustainable fashion designers can then access this information and use desired raw material for their own collections. This way materials that otherwise would be considered as waste or end up in the landfill or burnt, shall have a new life. This platform will also serve as data source for fashion industry related background information."
