The group wants to improve textile recycling in the region by collaborating with the Collective System of Extended Producer Responsibility (SCRAP) rules and encouraging a circular economy by creating waste management strategies.

According to the organization, joining would make it easier to comply with SCRAP’s standards, also the law goes into force in December 2024, local groups will have been compelled to start sorting their textile waste.

There will be a three-year grace period before the law is enforced during which time the Ministry for Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge (MITECO) will develop systems of expanded producer responsibility for textiles.

Also, by the partnership, they will enable compliance with Extended Producer Responsibility, which arose from the implementation of Directive 2008/98/EC regarding waste in Spanish legislation through the new Law 7/2022, of April 8, on waste and contaminated soils for a circular economy.

Mango will serve as the group’s initial leader, with one representative from each company sitting on the Governing Body.
