A Mou signed to promote upcycled textile productsAn MoU was signed at Bharat Tex 2024 between Textiles Committee, Government e-Marketplace and Standing Conference of Public Enterprises to promote upcycled products made from textiles waste and scrap. The ongoing Bharat Tex 2024 at Bharat Mandapam in New Delhi is India’s premier global textile event. Through upcyling, discarded items are transformed into new products of greater value and functionality. Under these MoUs, Government eMarketplace (GeM) will work with stakeholders in the upcycling ecosystem, especially under-served seller groups, to provide them direct market linkages in public procurement. This will be done sans intermediaries, through Vocal for Local GeM Outlet Stores. These stores will promote upcycled products made from textile waste and scrap.
