When we recycle, your unwanted goods can be re-used instead of being wasted. In Britain we produce around 1,000,000 tonnes of textile waste per year. A small percentage of textile waste is being recycled, the rest is sent to the overflowing landfills in the country. There are many reasons on why we should recycle, here are some:
Facts On Recycling
Textile products take up 12% of landfill sites. In 2006, 2.5 billion pounds of fabric were kept from the landfills by used-clothing purchases. About 55% of the rubbish we throw away each day could be recycled. Fabrics can take years to break down in landfill. Clothing and household textiles make up 4.67% of the waste stream. Textiles are the fastest growing sector in terms of household waste.
