Thanks to new technologies and with an eye on the circular future, Recovo has emerged.
Technology allows us to make major changes. Digitalisation makes production processes more efficient and facilitates cooperation between companies, international organisations and society. Some of the benefits of technology include the creation of new business models that encourage a low-carbon economy.
Thanks to new technologies and with an eye on the circular future, Recovo was created, the B2B marketplace where fashion brands can buy and sell surplus premium fabrics.
Every year more than 92 million tonnes of textile waste is generated. Even in Europe, 75% of textiles waste goes to landfill. In a society where clothing consumption has accelerated exponentially, it is essential to extend the life of textiles.
Recovo offers a solution that benefits both buyers and consumers, handling end-to-end management and matching products to the buyer that best suits them.
The platform not only has a large and varied catalogue of high quality surplus textiles, but also quantifies the resources avoided in terms of litres of water saved and kilos of CO2 avoided. In addition, Recovo now also collaborates with Dcycle to ensure the traceability of all fabrics.
Reusing fabrics is a big step towards circularity. It avoids greenhouse gas emissions from fabric incineration. Many brands have already benefited from this platform to sell and buy natural, recycled or synthetic fabrics. These include Ecoalf, Pyratex, Hemper and Pronovias.
Thank you for your interest in this project. Sustainability requires collaboration between companies and the use of new technologies to create business models such as Recovo or Ecodicta. This allows to lengthen the life cycle of products and accelerate the implementation of sustainability in the fashion industry.
Dcycle measures the footprint of scopes 1, 2 and 3, i.e. both direct emissions and those generated by third parties.
The carbon footprint measures the amount of greenhouse gases (GHG) produced directly or indirectly by humans.
