How to reduce waste
Proper care can go some way to easing textile waste, but finding a second life for products is crucial.
If a product is no longer wanted but is still usable, consider reselling, swapping or giving it away to avoid textile waste.
If a product reaches a point of disrepair, try using the textile for other purposes. This could include using it for craft projects like quilting or reusable gift wrapping.
If a product can't be fixed, upcycled, sold, shared or given away, it should be recycled at a textile recycling bank. Do not dispose of textiles in a household bin.
Check with local authorities to find the nearest textile recycling point.
