RREUSE, along with 10 other NGOs and business associations, urges EU lawmakers to incorporate waste prevention and local re-use as guiding principles into future EPR schemes for mandatory textile separate collection.
RREUSE and its members have launched a 12-month project that aims to unleash the potential of social enterprises in the digital era: ”The digital era of social enterprises: trends and opportunities within the circular economy (DigiSocCirc)”.
As the amount of waste from electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) grows rapidly, regulatory interventions in this area are ever more relevant. Therefore RREUSE eagerly took the opportunity to engage in the public consultation on the evaluation of the WEEE Directive. This is a vital piece of legislation shaping the management of electronic waste in the EU.
RREUSE is pleased to announce the submission of its commitments as part of the Textiles Ecosystem Transition Pathway, which aims at collecting commitments from stakeholders on the concrete actions to support the transition and resilience of the textiles ecosystem.
As the European network of social enterprises active in repair, re-use and recycling, RREUSE welcomes the European Commission’s (EC) intention to evaluate and review the Textiles Labelling Regulation (TLR). The last partial assessment dates back to 2014 and contains persistent issues.
