SIXR was Created to Incentivize Fashion Recycling

Fashion circularity is a puzzle too complicated to solve.

Or is it?

Finding the right pieces for fashion circularity can be, well, puzzling. Many fashion brands feeling like circularity leads to a loss in revenue, quality, and consumer interest. Everything changed when SIXR’s co-founders, Gagan Singh and Vijay Thomas, took the successes of their previous venture, Clean Planet, and created SIXR: A tech platform that incentivizes circular behaviour.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Clean Planet became Canada's largest supplier of zero-waste medical gowns and generated $10 million dollars in revenue in their first year. When COVD-19 ended, a realization hit us. We were able to keep manufacturing wastes to a zero with our recycling partners, but what happens to the medical gowns after? How do we manage to store data on clothes, trace each item, and motivate consumers to recycle their end-of-life clothes?

From Clean Planet’s success and our determination to find solutions to our puzzlement, SIXR was formed.

Did you know that while 96% of beer bottles are recycled in Ontario? But less than 15% of clothing is recycled? What’s worse is less than 1% of textiles are recycled into other textiles. What makes recycling clothes so unsuccessful compared to beer bottles and cans? The lack of incentives in the fashion industry.

How does SIXR work?

When a customer scans the QR code on the garment, they can access information about its origin, production process, end-of-life recycling options, and the incentives they can receive.

SIXR's QR codes also provide critical data for recycling companies to collect and sort apparel, making recycling easier. For brands, this data enhances transparency, leading to increased customer loyalty.

We believe that by partnering with SIXR, fashion brands can make a significant impact on reducing textile waste and contribute to a more sustainable future. We are seeking investment to scale our business and connect with brands committed to circular fashion solutions.

Thank you for exploring SIXR. We look forward to revolutionizing the fashion industry with you, one QR code at a time.
