Committed to promote sustainable consumption


On June 6th 2023, the European Laudato Si’ Alliance organized an awareness-raising webinar on the EU sustainable textile strategy. The webinar has been an opportunity to hear from the European Parliament rapporteur on this strategy,  important initiatives and networks such as RREUSE and the Romero Initiative (CIR) from two extraordinary projects led by Caritas Luxembourg and Caritas Spain.

In Luxembourg,  Lët’z Refashion is a space conceived as a meeting point for the promotion of ethical and sustainable fashion to raise awareness of the environmental and social issues linked to the textile industry.

ModaRe, a Caritas Spain initiative, manages the collection, reuse, preparation for recycling, donation and sale of textiles. Based on the circular economy model, it has achieved impressive results. In 2022, ModaRe has worked with 46 social economy companies, and it has created over 1,300 jobs. It has collected over 43 million kilograms of clothing items, managed a network of 7,157 sensorised containers and 130 points of sale and is present in 80 cities across Spain.

Acting both on the prevention, recycling and reuse of textiles, those organizations are contributing to the achievement of SDG 12 in Europe.
