This week’s guest on The WTiN Podcast is Dalia Benefatto, a consultant at REMOkey.
Founded in 2010, the team at REMOkey has created a label and communication solution for textiles made with recycled materials. The process involves three steps, the first of which is calculation. To determine the definite percentage of used recycled content in a product, the company maps the production trail throughout the supply chain and calculates the associated environmental impact. Secondly, REMOkey works with Process Factory to validate and credit the information and then finally, all this data is communicated to consumers via a QR-code label and website.
In this episode, Benefatto explains in more depth about how the process works and why the company was started in the first place. She talks about how transparency is key and her tips for spotting greenwashing in the industry. Elsewhere, we discuss topics such as self-declaration, how consumers, industry and governments need to work together to build a green economy, and the sister company that REMOkey is launching later in 2021 to bring this solution to all other fibres.
