Fabric waste recycling in the Global context

The waste left over from old clothing and textiles usually ends up in landfills where it is usually landfilled or burned. These disposal techniques not only harm the environment but also waste a lot of precious resources. A significant disposal issue has been brought on by the textile industry’s vast volume of textile waste production. It is crucial to recycle textile waste into goods with value-added for both economic and environmental reasons. Despite the widespread desire and demand for textiles to be circular, a comprehensive concept of recycling textile waste has not yet been offered. To fill this gap, this study provides a detailed study of the amount of fabric produced globally, the amount of fabric waste thrown away globally, and fabric offcut recycling methods as well as the corresponding Challenges of Fabric Recycling.
