Did you Know? 95% of textile can be recycled.
We continue to throw away our old textiles year after year, despite the fact that almost all of them can be recycled! This means that there is an alternative to dumping garbage in a landfill. The US Environmental Protection Agency estimated in 2013 that 2.3 million tonnes of textiles were recycled, avoiding disposal. They claimed that this figure had the same environmental impact as removing 1.2 million cars from the road. Whether you choose to donate your old clothes to charity or up-cycle them into something new for yourself, imagine the environmental impact if everyone chose to recycle their clothes!
