Why recycle?

Around 350,000 tonnes of clothing is discarded in the household waste stream every year. That’s around £140 million worth of used, but still wearable clothing being thrown away. Most of this wasted material could easily be reused or recycled through textile recycling. It can take tens of years for various types of clothing to break down whilst also having a damaging effect on the environment with the release of harmful gases and chemicals during the decomposition stage.
