In Conversation with Jenny Fredricsdotter of Re:newcell

Jenny Fredricsdotter (Re:newcell), Muchaneta ten Napel (FashNerd.com)
Although it is not a silver bullet for the suite of problems, textile recycling is still an essential avenue for the fashion industry to continue exploring and shifting towards. Making the transition easier is Re:newcell. Normalising the reuse, remake, resell, remake again, resell again business model, the Swedish company has been busy pioneering a sustainable and circular recycling method that could close the fashion loop by transforming textile waste into Circulose. Circulose is solely made from discarded textiles that have been turned into new high-quality fibres, yarns and fabrics. Exploring Re:newcell's influence when it comes to helping the fashion industry shift to circularity, Muchaneta ten Napel of FashNerd.com will be talking to Jenny Fredricsdotter, the Circular Business Manager of Re:newcell. The primary conversation areas will revolve around alternative materials, fashion sustainability, circular economy and mindful consumption.   Jenny has over twenty years of experience in the fashion industry, working with buying, production and sourcing for companies like H&M and Gina Tricot in Europe and Asia. Jenny also studied Textile Economics at the Textile Colleague of Fashion in Borås, Sweden and has taken several courses on fashion sustainability, circular economy and mindful consumption. She joined Re:newcell in 2017.

COLLABORATE TO REGENERATE - Can we transform the reputation of our industry from being less bad, to doing good?

Sanne van den Dungen (YasasreeViroha Impex Pvt Ltd), Niccy Kol (Raddis Cotton), Muchaneta ten Napel (FashNerd.com)
The Journey to Carbon Neutrality, improved Soil heath, Biodiversity increase highlights attention to make garments less bad for the planet; Can Regenerative Agriculture play a roll into your strategy? The big ones Patagonia, Hugo Boss & the Kering Group, but also the German SME LAESSIG FASHION or the UK Start-up Bedstraw+Madder to name a few are all integrating this supply line into their sourcing. This talk focuses on a “farm-to-fashion” cotton-value-chain in which the brand is supportive from the seed onwards, enabling the farm to develop a resilient eco-system through regenerative farming. This direct collaboration is build on long term commitment for positive change, creating trust and preparing calculated risks in a short and transparent supply chain. The conversation will be suitable for both those new to the concept, but also insights to those pioneering this approach. (EN)
