We understand that the garments and other products such as shoes, wallets, belts, purses, backpacks, soft toys, caps etc. are being used by us in our daily lives. After usage, these products become waste thereby polluting our environment. If dumped in landfills, these products can take many years to decompose. Also, they release toxic substances such as methane and carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and to surrounding soil and groundwater.
Textile recycling is the best option by which old clothing and other textiles are recovered for reuse or material recovery. It is the basis for textile recycling industry. The importance of recycling fabric and textiles is increasingly being recognized. The environmental benefits of fabric and textile recycling includes the decreased landfill space, use of virgin fibers, reduced consumption of energy and water, avoid pollution and less demand for dyes.
The goal of Planet Green Recycling is to increase the amount of textile waste that can be recovered and at the same time develop new uses, products, and markets for products derived from pre-consumer and post-consumer textile waste.
