RRS has released Textile Recovery in the U.S.: A Roadmap to Circularity - a white paper that highlights the current state of textile waste in the U.S. and outlines a future-state system in which textiles are recovered for best and highest use.

“Textile waste in the U.S. has increased 78 percent in less than 20 years, while the waste stream as a whole only grew 10 percent in the same time frame,” said Marisa Adler, RRS consultant and lead author of the white paper. “Only 15 percent of textile waste is diverted from landfills. Action is needed to change consumption, reduce the impact on the environment, and develop models to recover these materials.
