REMO Recycling Movement

download (1)Recycling clothes is not new, but tracking and tracing where they come from, what they went through, and what savings were made, all of this is new. REMO’s innovative track and trace system charts the journey of recycled fibres through the production chain, feeding exact information into the REMO database about a garment’s production history. The system reveals exact information about an item’s origin and past life, a precise percentage of its recycled content, and the resulting environmental savings on energy, water and CO2. The end result is a garment tag with a measurement of recycled content as well as a call to action to dive deeper into the garment’s history. I was involved at the start with the founder Martin Havik  and the companies Texperium & Frankenhuis.
