ANN ARBOR - A new white paper from sustainability consultants Resource Recycling Systems (RRS) highlights the current state of textile waste in the US and outlines a future system in which textiles are recovered for best and highest use.

Entitled Textile Recovery in the US: A Roadmap to Circularity, it analyses potential causes of the country's increasing textile waste problem, including fast fashion and fibre composition, which is outpacing every other form of waste.

"In the United States alone, consumers buy a new garment every five days and keep these items for a shorter period of time; more than half of fast fashion produced is disposed of in under one year," it reveals.
