We rescue your old clothes before they end up in the landfill and recycle them into something new.
Texile, n. [tek-sile] – a garment of clothing that has been disposed of, an exiled textile.
The average American throws away 80 pounds of clothing every year – this adds up to roughly 13 million tons, contributing to overcrowding of landfills and pollution.
This material decomposes slowly and releases harmful greenhouse gases into our atmosphere. In fact, the annual environmental impact of a household’s clothing equates to 1,000 bathtubs of water and the carbon from 6,000 miles of driving a car.
Yet 95% of this material can be recycled.
