Towards circular fashion: giving an unexpected new life to your old clothes
We are currently recycling our plastic, cardboard and glass waste, but what happens with the old clothes that we throw away? At the moment that are no commercial recycling processes for waste textiles, which means that discarded clothes are just piling in landfills or are being incinerated. At Lund University, we are trying to provide alternatives to the fashion sector so that this waste can be handled sustainably and old clothes can have a new and useful life.
