Australian Fashion Council launches garment levy to overcome fashion waste

The Australian Fashion Council (AFC) has launched the National Clothing Product Stewardship Scheme called “Seamless” to tackle clothing waste in Australia. Six major brands, including Big W and David Jones, have signed up as founding members, pledging a 4 cent per garment levy on sales for initiatives like sustainable design and textile recycling. Of the close to 400,000 tonnes of clothes imported or produced in Australia each year, half ends up in landfill, with only 2% getting recycled.
