The resources include a sustainable clothing guide which is a practical guide for designers and technologists to enhance clothing durability, case studies which share the experiences from five durability clothing trials involving SCAP signatories such as F&F, George, John Lewis, Stella McCartney and Cath Kidston, and a clothing durability report to enable clothing retailers and brands to embed durability processes within their company.

The research studies show that increasing the active life of all clothing by nine months would significantly reduce the carbon,water and waste footprints of countries.
