Review

The world is full of textiles landfill as a consequence of unsustainable production and consumption. The hotel industry is a great potential for waste and an opportunity to grow businesses that are looking to reduce environmental impact as a general problem. I salute Jouten for taking on this challenge and try to transform it into a circular model!

Review

This Planet Act implements circularity into the garment business and has required rethinking and redesigning not only the products but the whole business model and supply chain. This Planet Act also positions reusable materials as desirable and allows hotels to significantly improve their resource efficiency and avoid waste.
