Indeed, the fashion industry is a sector with a strong impact on the environment; it requires a very long and complicated supply chain linked to the high use of water and resources, the use of chemical substances, the contamination of water and air, the production of waste and, finally, the generation of microplastics. Textile and textile waste has become a huge international concern. Against this context, the objective of this paper is to evaluate existing measures of the European Union (EU) that have an impact on the development of sustainable practices and the transition to a round financial system in the style industry, with a specific emphasis on the need for clothing in the EU (for paintings and pleasure).

Most style finally ends up in a landfill and maximum of it, an extraordinary waste of money, within 12 months of being made. Therefore, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation (EMAF) is organizing an international alliance to show the linear discard put on style financial system right into a round one. Big manufacturers such Burberry, Gap, H&M, and Nike, have come on board to paintings to expand a round financial system that levels out dangerous substances and maintains garments in use.
