Close The Loop:
Flanders DC and Circular Flanders have developed a tool to guide fashion entrepreneurs towards a more sustainable way of working. With this online platform we encourage the industry to steer clear of a linear system (take-make-waste) and to embrace a more circular approach instead (with a focus on durability and avoiding waste). The platform contains over 350 inspring cases, business strategies on circular economy and hands on tips and tricks for companies on sourcing, design, production to the end of life phase. After launching the platform in 2015, Close The Loop grew into a broader programme with an intensive one-year coaching programme, one-on-one-advise for fashion companies, workshops, talks and a Facebook community.
