How do you take over 13 tonnes of textiles out of landfill in a 6 month period? Easy! Start with socks! Lisa and Jacqui chat with Michael from Manrags - and find out how what started as a men’s essentials subscription business turned into the world’s first circular subscription club. Manrags take responsibility for the entire life-cycle of their products while keeping them out of landfill. Along with their partner - Textile Recyclers Australia, they repurpose, repair and recycle into new threads, creating a completely circular system.
