Ontario Textile Diversion Collaborative

The Ontario Textile Diversion Collaborative is a multi stakeholder group under the umbrella of Fashion Takes Action. OTDC is committed to minimizing the number of textiles going into landfill by increasing the rate of textile diversion and by encouraging the development of a textile recycling industry in Ontario. Our stakeholders include municipalities, academics, brand owners, retailers and industry organisations, NGOs, textile collectors and charities. OTDC has been funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s Collective Impact grant. Our working groups operate under a leadership committee which develops campaigns and policy positions based on research, discussions, workshops, and experience. Our positions are committed to the environment, while considering both feasibility and economic prosperity.
