Be Part of a Growing Market: The Textile Recycling Industry
Fast fashion is a growing global issue because low-cost items are not designed to last. Research shows that we now own, on average, five times more garments than our grandparents. With 80 million items produced each year, significant amounts of clothing are being thrown out, creating massive landfills—which create greenhouse gases. In another worrying trend, it’s been reported that we wear an item only seven times before throwing it away.
Reusing and recycling clothing and shoes is one way to help overcome this. As a franchise owner of Clothes Bin®, you’ll be helping to reduce Plano’s carbon footprint, reduce energy consumption, conserve water and help to preserve clean air through the recycling and reuse of clothing and shoes.
