WDCD Circular Showcase

Every second, a garbage truck of textiles is exiled to landfills or incinerated. Fast fashion is a pollutant, impacting our land, our rivers, and the very air we breathe. Rethread Africa is reimagining a new circular system that turns waste into biodegradable soil enriching fabric to last longer, use fewer resources, and work with nature. Noreen Mwancha explains their winning Make it Circular Challenge project in her pitch at the WDCD Circular Showcase Made using maize husk residue, Rethread Africa’s textile solution is designed to last longer than its conventional counterparts while using fewer resources and actually regenerating nature.
