RREUSE supports the proposed revision of the Waste Framework Directive, as it recognises the significant role of social enterprises in promoting textile re-use. However, further clarification and improvements are necessary to enhance the effectiveness and ambition of the legislation, particularly concerning the upcoming Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) schemes on textiles.
