Earlier this month, the Huffington Post UK released an interesting article concerning the amount of textiles consumed today, the amount of resources used to produce this amount of textiles and what is being done to decrease the amount of waste. For instance, the author mentioned that the global apparel industry will during the year 2015 produce more than 400 billion square meters of textile, equivalent to covering the UK two times over. She also mentioned that Americans throw away approximately 10.5 million tons of clothing per year.
re:newcell's technology is in this article presented as one of the technologies that could decrease the amount of textile waste that the world produces.
Lyndsay McGregor has written an article for Sourcing Journal where she highlights the importance of a sustainable fashion industry. She raises issues such as a need for change within the textile supply chain and to close the loop on textiles as textile production requires a large amount of natural resources and the demand for textile is continuously increasing. Several textile industry businesses were interviewed in the article, such as H&M, Worn Again and re:newcell, each giving their point of view on how to make the textile industry more sustainable.
