Cyndi Rhoades

Cyndi founded Worn Again Technologies, originally called Worn Again, in 2005 with a determination to make a difference and create a business out of solving the challenge of textiles becoming waste and ending up in landfill or incineration.

Cyndi began her career as a film maker in music videos and documentaries which over time evolved into a deep interest in the impacts of commerce and global economics on society and the environment. These interests led to the formation of Worn Again which she has been driving forward ever since, from its early beginnings in upcycling to its current transformational polymer recycling technology.

Paving the way in this uncharted territory, Cyndi continues to push boundaries as a recognised thought (and ‘do’) leader and an advocate for polymer recycling technology as a solution to replace the use of virgin resources.

Cyndi is a regular speaker on circularity in textiles at industry conferences and events including the Economist Sustainability Summit and Stylus Decoded Future conferences.

She is an award-winning entrepreneur; in 2019 Cyndi was awarded the PCIAW Outstanding Contribution to the Textile Industry and was a finalist for The Circular Economy Awards, Leadership award. Previous accolades include being a Courvoisier Future 500 Ambassador, a Force for Good Pioneer by Tomorrow’s Company and an Enterprise UK Ambassador. She is an early pioneer of the sustainable fashion movement, a co-founder of the RE:Fashion Awards, the world’s first Sustainable Fashion Awards in London, and more recently a Co-Founder of World Circular Textiles Day.
