Abstract

Each year approximately 12 tons of textile waste goes into the landfill. These textiles can be reclaimed and properly recycled, however 93% of the textile waste is not recovered. The purpose of this design was to contribute to the reduction of textile landfill waste by creating a garment out of gently used and discarded men’s shirts and pants.
