Textiles
  • Date: Nov. 1, 9-10am Pacific
  • Location: webinar
  • Description: Textiles and clothing are an important component in residential waste streams. Textiles and clothing also have industrial uses in firefighting, healthcare, agricultural work, and cooking. We are surrounded by products containing textiles and it’s about time to discuss end-of-life for these materials. Textiles comprise 4% of the CA waste stream according to CalRecycle’s 2014 waste characterization report and many clothing manufacturers agree that raw material sourcing has the largest impact in GHG reduction efforts. Join this webinar from the National Stewardship Action Council (NSAC) to learn what manufacturers are doing upstream to address textile sustainability and how jurisdictions are dealing with textile recycling at the end-of-life.
