A RISING TIDE OF APPAREL AND TEXTILE WASTE- WHAT BRANDS ARE DOING AND IS IT ENOUGH?

85% of Textile/Apparel Waste Ends Up in Landfills
The sheer volume is alarming, but so is the increasing cost to collect and transport this "disposable clothing". 

This presents a growing risk to a variety of stakeholders:

  • Designers, manufacturers, and retailers are seeing their brands connected with a fleeting product and excessive waste.
  • Municipalities are left to manage high volumes of waste at increasing costs per ton.
  • Producers face natural resource shortages and rising raw material costs.
  • Consumers generate demand for low-quality, high-turnover garments, whose production has negative environment consequences and involves questionable labor practices.
