A Shocking Amount of Textile Waste is Produced Every Year

In the US, over 15 million tonnes of textile waste is produced every year; while in the EU, an enormous 9.35 million tonnes of textile waste are being landfilled or incinerated each year, making textile waste one of the biggest challenges for environmental sustainability and economic development.

A variety of factors are making textile waste a global challenge, including increasing textile consumption, lack of recycling awareness, and lack of infrastructure to manage textile recycling. Developed countries continue to consume a high amount of textile products, especially with the rise of the fast fashion industry, and produce a magnificent amount of textile waste.

Increasing number of Leading Fashion Brands are Dedicated to Textile Recycling

More and more dedicated textile and apparel manufacturers, researchers and fashion brands are continuously developing innovations and methods to reduce textile waste. For example, denim brand Levi’s is set to make jeans with 100% recycled cotton by 2025, while fashion retailer H&M plans to use only recycled or other sustainably sourced materials in all its products by 2030.

Meanwhile, many other international fashion brands, namely Mongo, Zara and Stella McCartney etc. have also joined the global trend of textile recycling and sustainable fashion.
