Textile Landfill waste

The Impact of Textile Waste and How We Reduce it

The world generates over 92 million tonnes of textile waste annually, contributing significantly to environmental degradation. At Watership Down Crafts we are committed to addressing this issue through sustainable and innovative crafting techniques that reduce waste and promote eco-friendly practices.

Understanding Textile Waste

Textile waste includes both consumer discards and manufacturing remnants. These materials often end up in landfills, where they release harmful pollutants as they decompose. To understand more about the global impact of textile waste, visit the Global Fashion Agenda.

Our Sustainable Solutions

 At Watership Down Crafts, we implement several sustainable practices to minimise waste. By repurposing offcuts and recycled materials, we create beautiful, eco-friendly products. 

The Role of Upcycling

Upcycling is a core part of our approach, transforming discarded textiles into high-quality products. This method not only conserves resources but also reduces landfill waste. Our eco-friendly tote bags showcase how stylish and sustainable upcycled products can be.

Advocacy and Awareness

We advocate for sustainable fashion and work to raise awareness about the importance of reducing textile waste. For more information on how fashion impacts the environment and how you can contribute, visit Fashion Revolution.
