Fast Fashion filling landfills
Estimates show that approximately 85 percent of textile waste in the U.S. ends up in a landfill or is incinerated. But this doesn’t have to be. REMADE is working to address the environmental issues associated with “fast fashion.”
An ongoing project represents more than $1 million in research and development to decarbonize the apparel industry, significantly increasing the industry’s use of recycled materials, decreasing its energy consumption, and reducing the industry’s greenhouse gas emissions.
