The fashion industry has gone through many revolutionary changes and now, food waste seems to be the next major thing in the industry.
Around 270 million tons of waste from peels to stalks are produced in the world every year. Many start-ups in the fashion industry are looking to bank in on the same by making fashion accessories with these waste items.
But they are not using it as you think they are. These waste items are recycled into a natural fibre which can then be used on clothes. One of the major start-ups that are pushing the idea is circular systems.
Their founder noted that it’s time for the fashion industry to shift its focus from chemicals to more sustainable options such as this concept.
