When it comes to recycling, the first thing that would come to mind would be paper, metals or even wood. What about textiles? Well as per EPA, textile materials are equally as important in pulling down greenhouse gas emission problems as well.
No doubt that we have seen a couple of textile recycling ideas, fabrics which are somehow transformed into some alternative and useful piece. But if we are adamant in curbing down the growing emission problems, they should be treated in the same way that other common recyclable materials are given.
Overall, the EPA estimates that 6.5 percent of trash entering our dumps are textiles than can be recycled. Each year, two million tons of clothing are reclaimed.
