  1. 1. (Our Products) It is estimated that more than 1 million tones of textiles are thrown away every year, with most of this coming from household sources. At least 50% of these textiles are recyclable; however, the proportion of textile wastes reused or recycled annually in the UK is only around 25%. Items for textile recycling Recycling and reusing the textiles Helping the environment New textile banks Items for textile recycling All unwanted clothes (including underwear) can be recycled in your local textile recycling bank. Please ensure that your clothes are clean and that shoes are tied together. Soft toys, hats, bed linen and towels can also be recycled in any designated textile Reusing the clothes Nearly 70% of items put into clothing banks are reused as clothes, and any un- wearable items are sold to merchants to be recycled and used as factory wiping cloths. Helping the environment
  2. 2. While having many economic benefits, clothing has a significant environmental and ethical impact ranging from increased carbon emissions, waste, water usage and pollution to child labour and unfair trading conditions. The clothing and textiles sector in the UK alone produces around 3.1 million tonnes of CO2, 2 million tonnes of waste and 70 million tonnes of waste water per year - with 1.5 million tonnes of unwanted clothing ultimately ending up in landfill. Making just one t-shirt uses 800 litres of water so help to make a difference by making that trip to your nearest clothing bank! New textile banks If you would you like your village or neighbourhood to be considered as a potential location for a new Textile Recycler’s clothing bank please contact us. In the UK: Textiles represent between 3% - 5% of household waste. Estimates for arising of textile waste vary between 550,000 - 900,000 tonnes each year. Over 1 million tonnes of textiles are thrown away every year mostly from domestic sources, of which only 25% are recycled. Recycling textiles can save up to 15 times the energy recoverable by incineration. Discarded clothing and shoes are typically sent to landfill. Textiles present particular problems in landfill. Synthetic (man-made fibres) products do not decompose. Woollen garments do decompose, but in doing so they produce methane, which contributes to global warming and climate change. The World Health Organisation estimates that 150,000 people die every year from climate change. Closer to home an estimated 15,000 people died in France during the summer heat wave of 2003. What are the benefits of recycling? Textile recycling in the UK provides affordable source of clothing to disadvantaged people in the developing world and emerging countries in Eastern Europe. In many of these countries it also provides the basis of economic growth by providing employment for much of the population. Alan Wheeler of the Textile Recycling Association confirms this when he says this "demonstrates that clothes recycling is not only good for the environment, but also that it has an important social and economic role to play. The benefits extend to the UK where we estimate that private textile reclamation businesses employ around 5 - 10,000 people, with a further 9,500 employed in UK charity shops. The public and politicians should be fully aware of the crucial contributions this industry makes to the world economy and sustainable development." Furthermore, by employing over 250,000 people in Europe, of which a large number are from disadvantaged populations, they help fight social exclusion and create jobs as well as diverting resources from landfill. Where can I get more information? There are lots of great sites to visit to find out more about textile recycling and recycling in general. These are just a few:
