1 NATIONAL TEXTILE AND APPAREL RECOVERY INITIATIVE

2 KEY FACTS Globally, we produce 2.1 BT of waste per year, more than 1.6 times earth s long-term production capacity. At this rate, we will generate 62% more textile and apparel waste in 2030 than in 2015, equal to 57 MT more per year. Most of this waste is landfilled or incinerated; only 20% is collected for reuse or recycling globally. PROJECTED GLOBAL FASHION WASTE (MILLION TONS) PLANETARY BOUNDARIES % Source: GFA s Pulse of the Fashion Industry

3 Millions KEY FACTS In the U.S., we generated 16.2 MT of textile waste in 2014, up from 9.5 MT in 2000, an increase of 71%. Meanwhile, overall MSW grew only 6%. Over that same time period, per capita generation rose from 67 lbs/pp/yr to 102 lbs/pp/yr, while per capita generation of MSW fell -6%. Textiles in the MSW grew from 3.9% in 2000 to 6.2% in TONS US MSW GENERATED PERCENT CHANGE IN TONS GENERATION PERCENT CHANGE IN PER CAPITA GENERATION Overall Waste Stream Food & Yard Other Wood Textiles 71% Rubber and Leather Plastics Metals Glass Paper and Paperboard -50% 0% 50% 100% Overall Waste Stream Food & Yard Other Wood Textiles 51% Rubber and Leather Plastics Metals Glass Paper and Paperboard -50% 0% 50% 100% Source: USEPA Source: USEPA Source: USEPA

5 Millions of Tons KEY FACTS Diversion through reuse and recycling has remained relatively flat at 16% between 2000 and Incineration and landfilling have accounted for about 84% of textile disposal for more than a decade. In 2014, about 19% of textiles went to waste to energy. The cumulative carbon impact and lost resources due to landfilled and incinerated textiles and apparel is growing each year.
