The G2G system is the first-of-its-kind mini-scale production line set up in a retail shop recycling post-consumer garments to a new one. It demonstrates the entire process of garment recycling, from sanitization, fiber opening, spinning all the way to garment knitting which takes place in a 40-foot glass container, using no water nor chemicals. Customer can view the whole recycle process.

Evaluation

A system to change garments that are no longer used back to fiber and make other garments again. Of course, it is possible to mix multiple garments. For example, you can combine a garment of yours with that of your deceased family member to make a new garment (or a new life). This system is currently installed in some shops of large fast fashion brands. Such a thought, or such an enlightenment activity, is highly appreciated. We hope that this system, which visualizes a circular economy, will be commonly installed and implemented across the world in the near future.
