Other top X posts this week came from Global Labor Justice-International Labor Rights Forum (GLJ-ILRF) applauding the Memorandum on Advancing Worker Empowerment by the Biden administration and material science company Recover collaborating to showcase its new recycled denim collection, Reiconics.

Better Cotton, IDH and Cotontchad’s primary goal is to facilitate an open dialogue on the challenges and opportunities for sustainable agriculture within Chad’s cotton sector.

Rosenbaum explains the memorandum brings a “whole-of-government approach” to advancing worker empowerment and organising workers’ rights and labour standards globally.

She pointed out that at a time when labour rights defenders are under attack in countries around the world, the Global Labor Strategy recognises the foundational importance of the right to organise.

GLJ-ILRF added that the new White House memorandum complements the Multilateral Partnership for Organizing, Worker Empowerment and Rights (M-POWER) Program as well as the recently launched US-Brazil partnership for workers’ rights.

Recover revealed its collection Reiconics is the result of a collaborative project between denim manufacturer Evlox and Spanish tech company Jeanologia, and aims to inspire and bring value to the industry by creating truly circular products through a process that implements eco-design, transparency, process measurement, traceability, and scalability.

The GRS-certified Reiconics collection is made from Recover recycled cotton fibre and Spanish cotton.

This year’s Hot Button report published by non-profit environmental organisation Canopy is said to underline a trend in the shift to next-gen production with the organisation noting that MMCF producers are eager to match brands’ commitments to be at the forefront of the next-gen textile revolution.

According to the report, 54% of the global viscose supply is designated with green shirt status this year.

Canopy believes next-gen has the potential to displace millions of tonnes of forest fibre, adding that fashion and apparel companies such as Inditex‘s Zara brand, Mara Hoffman, PVH, and H&M are already championing next-gen textiles and integrating them into their commercial lines.
