Where Do Excess Textiles Come From?

As per the Council for Textile Recycling, each year the average US citizen discards approximately 70 lbs. of clothing and related textiles. The U.S. EPA approximates that textile waste accounts for nearly 5% of total landfill usage. This discarded material, termed as post-consumer excess, is a significant concern. However, it pales in comparison to the quantity of new, pre-consumer materials disposed of annually, commonly known as "deadstock."
