About the project

This impact model has been originally implemented by Progetto Quid, Italian social enterprise that provides stable and fair employment opportunities to those who struggle most to access the job market.

The formula

Impact and main outcomes

The organisation produces its own collections recovering textile overstock from a network of national textile companies, and piloting circular design initiatives to recover samples and unsold garments.
