Surf’s Up with Looptworks Recycled Laptop Sleeves!
We love love love recycled products! With a fashion industry that produces millions of tons of clothing, footwear and textiles each year, there are so many opportunities to reuse and recycle. Not only do designers have a crucial role in creating your clothing, but also in selecting fabrics that have a composition that is recyclable. There are so many possibilities in rethinking the way that we design to enable multiple generations of products to be used, and working together is the best thing that we can do.
Looptworks is thrilled to announce a goal to recapture 17 million tons of textiles that end up in the landfill annually. To help with this large scale project, we're seeking to build a new PNW facility where we will upcycle, downcycle, and recycle textiles into fibers.
Loopworks is taking the next step toward transforming the world's excess textile materials into premium upcycled goods, recycled fibers and downcycled goods aims to eliminate global textile waste while inspiring people and businesses to reduce their impact on the planet.
