dc.description.abstract <p>The popularity of fast fashion companies has led to an overconsumption of fashion products, causing consumers to dispose of clothing while it is still functional. Much of this unwanted clothing ends up in landfills. The UK is known to be ahead of the curve regarding environmental matters when compared to the US. This includes textile recycling. The purpose of this study was to conduct a case study of a UK textile recycling organization to better understand the process in the UK. The charitable organization, TRAID was selected for this study because of the inclusivity of their textile recycling model. TRAID uses profits from its recycling efforts to fund projects that support positive changes in the apparel industry. It is a sustainable approach to the problem of textile waste including disposal, production and consumption. Eight in-depth interviews were conducted with TRAID's executive management team and observations were conducted at the TRAID stores.</p>
