Celebrating Earth Day

April 22nd, 2020

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. This year marks the 50th anniversary of #EarthDay. Now more than ever, we can see that we are all in this together.

Americans throw away more than 70 pounds of textiles per person per year, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates only 15% is donated or recycled. IFAI has highlighted companies within the fabric industry who are meeting the challenge head-on, in ways big and small, who are making a difference: https://www.ifai.com/small-business-center/x/recycle-repurpose-reclaim/
