Be Part of a Growing Market: The Textile Recycling Industry

The clothing and textile industry, particularly fast fashion, accounts for around 10% of the world’s carbon emissions and is a significant contributor to landfills. Fast fashion is a relatively new concept that causes significant environmental damage, exploits workers, and harms animals. It refers to the practice of replicating celebrity and catwalk culture by producing cheap garments at speed to meet the demands of consumers. However, once the trend goes out of fashion, the clothes end up in landfills.

Because fast fashion predominantly uses synthetic fibers, which are made from fossil fuels, producing this type of clothing also uses large amounts of energy, generating greenhouse gases. By owning a recycling clothing franchise with Clothes Bin®, you’re actively working towards reducing this ongoing global issue.
