Textiles

Most of the adverse environmental impact in the textile chain comes from the production of raw materials. From using large quantities of water, pesticides and fertilisers (cotton) to depletion of non-renewable resources (synthetic materials). Less than 15% of clothes are collected for recycling, and less than 1% of the material used to produce clothing is recycled into new clothing. Circular Economy strategies have the potential to offer solutions: use renewable sources, phase out dangerous substances, increase utilization and radically improve reuse and recycling.
