Monetising textile waste
fashion industry’s new frontier.
As a society, we have come a long way in reducing consumer waste by cutting down disposable coffee cups, and avoiding single use plastic bags and plastic bottles in our everyday activities.
The time has now come to address post-consumer textile waste. Unsold and unwanted clothing and textiles are piling up in landfills all over the world.
Unlocking the value of discarded textiles will be a huge commercial opportunity that closes the loop in fashion production.
It’s just not just fashion labels or designers are seeking solutions and new ways to work with recycle textiles.
Charities, government bodies, corporations and large manufacturers are all looking for opportunities to reuse and repurpose unwanted fabrics – such as uniforms, hotel sheets and unsold stock.
