How I can reduce excess clothing and to contribute to circular economy?

Today we would like to share with you an Innovator Spotlight interview with the Fabric Republic!

This interview took place as part of the KA2 Erasmus+ Small Scale Partnership “Green Compass for Europe” with the aim to raise awareness among youth about environmental challenges & climate change, and promote their active participation to creating a sustainable future.

Fabric Republic is an innovative and comprehensive clothing management system that focuses on today’s social needs, circular economy, environmental protection and takes care of vulnerable population groups. Its goal is the optimization and modernization of cyclical management of excess clothing and their vision is the collective development of social and ecological consciousness for a Zero Waste reality.

The process of an integrated clothing management system:

  • Collection of excess clothing
  • Sorting (everyday use clothing in good condition / unsuitable for use / suitable for re-use)
  • Cleaning / Disinfection with professional equipment
  • Classification (Adult / Women / Children / Infants – S / M / L / XL – Winter / Summer etc.)
  • Packaging / Storage
  • Distribution to solidarity organizations with privately owned vehicles
  • Sending what is unsuitable for use to recycling companies
  • Reuse (design and production of upcycled creations)
  • Communication – Dissemination of results


Big thanks to @Hopeland team for sharing such an inspiring example with our youth and promoting examples how to reduce the overuse of natural resources!
