Abstract

In 2010, discarded textile products were estimated at 13.2 million tons, or 5.3% of all municipal solid waste collected by garbage services in the United States (USEPA 2010). With less than 17% recovered, re-used or exported (USEPA, 2010), the time is now, to prepare our students to better understand how to develop products that extend the lifecycle of discarded textiles, to divert them from the landfill as long as possible.
