Ikea Foundation partners Enviu and CAIF for a circular textile waste model


IKEA Foundation has partnered with Enviu and Circular Apparel Innovation Factory (CAIF) for building a new circular textile waste model in India.

Under the partnership, Ikea Foundation would fund the initial and seeding phase of the five-year project in which Enviu and CAIF, together, will build capacities and impart skill training to waste workers, and build successful circular enterprises to reclaim value from textile waste.

This will help recover and reclaim value from textiles waste while unlocking green jobs for the waste workers who are one of the most vulnerable and underserved communities, said a joint statement.

The five-year project has taken on the ambitious mission of creating more than 5000 green jobs while saving at least 20 million kilos of textiles waste from ending up in landfills by 2026.
