Having a read through @WRAP_UK report into the waste textiles market - for our @ZeroWasteLeeds project on textiles and fashion. Lots of interesting stuff in there. 5% of household spending goes on clothing.
@WRAP_UK @ZeroWasteLeeds 921,000 tonnes of used textiles ended up in household residual waste (ie to go to landfill or incineration) in 2017. 336,000 tonnes of that was used clothing. Meanwhile 620,000 tonnes of used textiles were collected for reuse & recycling.
@WRAP_UK @ZeroWasteLeeds I always find big figures like that hard to relate to. But fair to say that a LOT of clothing and other textiles that could be reused - or recycled - is ending up in landfill or is being incinerated.

Launched today, CityCirc 1.0 is a computational tool developed by Exploration Architecture that makes it easier to design circular economy systems for cities and eco-industrial parks. Inspired by the interconnected and highly resource-efficient characteristics of ecosystems -
This tool allows designers to both plan and visualise how complex systems work. this tool allows designers to both plan and visualise how complex systems work. Users can input technologies / processes / land uses together with their key inputs / outputs and then make connections
so that waste from one part of the system can become an input for another part. This encourages designers to regard all under-utilised resources as opportunities to add something to the system to create more value. Exploration Architecture are now offering this as
