As we know, textile waste is an enormous problem for society, with around 1 garbage truck of used textiles per second going to landfill.  Within the textile manufacturing industry, the problem is also significant, but perhaps less spoken about; each garment created generates 20-30% of its weight in cutting waste, hence equivalent to one truck of waste every 3-5 seconds.  To help address this issue, The LYCRA Company is now providing performance fibres made from 100% textile waste, with the same quality and performance as their virgin counterparts but with a lower carbon footprint.   The Outdoor and Active industries are invited to join us in learning more about these fibres and how, together, we can help address the textile waste problem at commercial scale.
