8 Tons of Textiles Recycled
The average American throws away 81 lbs of textiles every year!
700,000 tons of these textiles are sent to Africa, Asia, and Central America to be re-sold there.
Although valuable for markets in developing countries, this waste has become a huge problem, as in many cases we are simply sending them trash.
Our seamstresses go to their local markets and purchase these textiles to be recycled into new garments.
Over the past ten years we have recycled over 8 tons of textile waste - this is something like 50,000 garments that are given a new life!
For every piece you purchase made with recycled textiles, you have a hand in recycling about 5 lbs of textiles - thank you, thank you for helping us make the world of fashion a bit cleaner :)
