Do you know that fashion generates 4% of the world’s waste each year? That is more than 92 million tons, more than toxic e-waste.

85% of all textiles thrown away in the US, which is close to 13 million tons, gets either dumped into landfill or burned.

The average person in America throws away around 37kg of clothes every year. That is a lot. Now, a lot of those clothes go to recycling.

The fashion industry tries in the past few years to recycle as much clothes as possible. This documentary gives you an insight to what happens with your recycled clothes.

These clothes can be transformed into something new, saving money and reducing the carbon footprint.
