This policy brief is the result of learnings from the first iteration of the Circular Fashion Partnership (CFP) project that took place in Bangladesh from October 2020 to December 2021. It presents the opportunity and importance of valorising post industrial textile waste and scaling of domestic recycling in manufacturing countries like Bangladesh and how political barriers must be addressed to create a supportive environment for investment and an effective circular infrastructure. It is intended as an informative piece, sharing recommendations for policy makers and regulators in Bangladesh and at supranational level, in particular for EU policymakers working on circular textile strategies and policies, and for industry stakeholders such as fashion brands, manufacturers and recyclers working on the same goal.
