Grave-to-Cradle is a self-developed circularity concept that circulates by-products of the food industry into the fashion industry to reduce the circularity gap within both industries through collaboration. Locally sourced food by-products are diverted from landfill to create sustainable solutions to reduce the circularity gap within both industries simultaneously.
Sustainability within by-product dyeing
The Sustainable By-product Dyeing Principle addresses mainly environmental concerns and challenges of inserting biodegradable by-products from local food waste streams, but touches upon social and economic considerations too to oversee the complexities. At the centre of SBDP’s heart stands UN’s SDG 12 Responsible Consumption and Production, this fuels each branch. Every aspect is within the SDG framework of how the SBDP could be developed in a sustainable manner.
The Sustainable By-product Dyeing Principle (SBDP)
The Sustainble By-product Dyeing Principle considers holistically how to create dyes out of food waste while respecting the planetary boundaries and safe working conditions.
