This year’s Circular Economy Club’s London meet-up sees us join forces with Sustainable Bankside and LWARB's "Love not Landfill".







Join us for FAST FIVE FASHION! This February, the CEC London will join forces with Sustainable Bankside and LWARB to  reflect on the social, environmental and economic impact the fashion industry has on our planet.


Fashion is a big business and it plays a major role in the global economy. With an increasing demand from developing countries, it has been predicted a rise of 63% in overall fashion consumption between 2017 and 2030.

Unfortunately, it comes at a high environmental cost; cotton being associated to freshwater resources depletion; microfibres from polyester making their way into the oceans are a few examples.






Therefore the fashion industry is at a very high undesirable position in the ranking of unsustainable development.


Fortunately, there is hope and our FAST FIVE FASHION cat walkers are examples of transformation from fast fashion to sustainable fashion. During this event they will share their journey as a fast growing business and how they reduce the impact of fast fashion rapidly! 








Our host Adam Woodhall will be joined by Nu Wardrobe, BuyMeOnce and 3 more soon to be announced speakers and the newly formed CEC London team provides support for an insightful evening of discussion and fashion inspiration! Together, we’ll celebrate the work of our fast-growing network of Circular Economy professionals in London.
