Part of a Growing Market: The Textile Recycling Industry
The textile industry is fast becoming one of the most significant contributors to landfills around the globe. In 2018, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimated that the U.S. produced around 17 million tons of textiles, with much of it ending up in landfills. It’s up to all of us to do our part and work together as a community to look at ways to reduce landfills and build a more sustainable environment. One way to do this is by recycling our clothing, shoes and other textiles. As an owner of a clothing recycling franchise with Clothes Bin®, you can become part of the solution in addressing this global issue.
Recycling textiles helps reduce the amount of solid waste we produce each year, which can positively affect the amount that ends up in landfills. It can also help reduce pollution, water and energy consumption, all used when producing fast fashion.
