Upcycling end-of-life textile pays off

In the Benelux, 285 million kilos of end-of-life textiles are currently disappearing annually on landfills or in incinerators. In the current linear economy, products are bought, used and discarded, practically unacceptable in this time. In the circular approach, we reuse the textile fibres for new, high-quality garments or products. This is also called upcycling.
