Join us on the Journey to sustainable, Circular and regenerative fashion futures
Welcome to Summer
''Its been a busy three months in Circular Earth, we have hardly found the time to create our connections e-mail ! That I only see as a good thing indeed, circularity and regenerative practice is at least now being acknowledged and asked about more and more.
Enjoy the read - and I hope we can connect soon on your work too. '' - Rachel -
Our Real Circularity Academy started on Wednesday and introduced us to our founding professionals.. all with amazing experience and knowledge in the fashion space, wanting to transition to the world of circularity in their professional careers.
We are proud of the quality of professionals that have taken the course up and we look forward to the next 12 weeks.
This is not a course to teach you have to suck eggs - this is real application in context with your career and professional work.

The Ecosystem is now creating or should I say co-creating its first collaborative brands, ideas and initiatives .. as it starts to take on a life of its own - these examples will give to you an idea of the kinds of things that we do and indeed be in our Incubator. Aside from the pods we continue to streamline, share collective intelligence and even co-create collaborative consultancy programs like Real Circularity, bringing together 2 or 3 or more people who's knowledge combines to make a more coherent context as one.

The Harvest Retreat is an agile project created by a collaboration of minds inside The Ecosystem Incubator, to gather money and funds for the start of a workable first processing of locally UK grown Hemp into a fully localised fiber for sale into fashion brands.
The Retreat will be your deep dive into regenerative communities and the farm that they grow on is truly a whole system, not only do you join in the field with the hemp and heat to prep it, you will sample the wonderful locally made and grown produce (fully all including with your ticket cost by the way), listen to the stories of all the people hand making, the Nettle dress film will be shown, there will be music , dancing and the ability to take part in gong baths if thats you bag.

We continue to connect with businesses regardless of their landscape to gather consultancy. At circular Earth size doesn't matter, what matters is your intention..
If you want to work towards a transition from regular fashion to a circular solution - if you want to start a business from nothing - right through to a large corporate business.
Link here with me for a virtual coffee - or if you are in London join me at The Conduit for a real one & discuss your business options.
If you are looking for new materials, we have more and more coming out of our incubator now and we would love to also connect you with the newest innovation with integrity. Watch this space for more innovations in fiber, generally in the old is new space.
