Australian innovation leads the way: composting worn-out clothing sets new global standard

In a groundbreaking stride towards sustainability, Australians could soon lead the global charge in composting their worn-out clothing, thanks to the pioneering efforts of lingerie entrepreneur Stephanie Devine. Collaborating with sustainability experts and academics, Devine’s Very Good Bra has championed the creation of a compostable textiles standard proposal for Standards Australia.

After public consultation, the proposal was embraced, marking a potential world-first. This pivotal move addresses textile waste and contamination concerns, potentially revolutionizing the fashion industry’s impact on the environment. With widespread support, this initiative heralds a brighter, circular future where clothing composting becomes a norm, fostering an eco-conscious shift in fashion practices.
