Textiles Tuesday

Textiles

Did you know the average person throws away 37 kilograms of textiles each year, and 95 per cent of those clothes could be reused or recycled? Globally, textiles waste has increased dramatically due to the rise in clothing consumption and production. 

Textiles Tuesday will raise awareness on the environmental consequences of clothing and textiles consumption, and provide information on how you can donate your clothes for rewear/reuse.  

Host a Textiles Collection Event

Waste Reduction Week in Canada encourages organizations and communities across Canada to think about their clothing footprint by organizing a clothing collection drive for used clothes for reuse and rewear during Textiles Tuesday.
