Few quick facts

A few fashion factoids from the Textile Exchange:
  • The U.S. EPA estimates that textile waste occupies nearly 5% of all landfill space. 
  • Using recycled cotton saves over 5,000 gallons of water per kilogram of cotton, which is a very water intensive crop. 
  • The U.S. EPA estimates that only 15% of all textiles are recycled.
  • Up to 95% of the textiles that are put in land fills each year could be recycled.
