SECOND LIFE TO YOUR CLOTHES

Understand the life cycle of the clothes and its impact on the environment

produced

It takes on average between 10 000 and 20 000 litres of water to produce a kilogram of cotton equivalent to the weight of one man’s shirt and a pair of jeans

25% of all insecticides used are applied by the cotton producers and the energy involved in the whole life cycle of the clothing consumed in the EU has generated 195 million CO2 tonnes per year.

sold

With fast fashion being a dominant business model, people are buying more clothes at an increasing rate reaching 6.4 million tonnes per year in the EU.

The vast majority of purchases of new clothes and only 6% of people even consider buying second hand clothes.

used

The average person buys 60 percent more items of clothing and keeps them for about half as long as 15 years ago.

The active life of clothing in EU varies between 3 and 4 years and doubling it from one year to two years reduces CO2 emissions over the year by 24%.

dropped off in clothing bin

There is a clear opportunity to collect and recover more of these textile items.

It is important to consider the alternative way of dropping your unwanted garment in the drop-off bins and allow the textile cycle to loop forward.

sorted

The collected textile waste is sorted at dedicated recovery facilities depending on its next best possible utilization.

Each individual item is evaluated according to international waste management hierarchy.

recycled

After a proper treatment the sorted garments can be reused as second hand clothing, wiping cloths, insulation materials and fillings textures or burned for energy recovery.

Throwing your clothes away to the common waste container leads to environmental pollution

Millions tons of garments ends up in the landfills in Europe each year.
Тhеsе quantities become bigger and bigger because of the fast fashion and overconsumption of clothes creating an increasing problem with the landfill spaces.
Some types of garments need more than 50 years to decompose in the landfills. They remain for decades and emit methane gas, a well-known contributor to global warming.
Toxic substances leach into our soil and groundwater, and become environmental hazards for years.
Valuable resources held within the waste are also lost.
Diverting this waste from landfills has a huge environmental positive impact…learn how.
