GOONDIWINDI - Textile waste is being spread on cotton fields in a groundbreaking trial in Australia which aims to test whether shredded cotton could improve soil health and reduce the amount of waste going to landfill.

The project, led by circular economy specialists Coreo, is a partnership between the Queensland State Government, Goondiwindi Cotton, bedding company Sheridan, Cotton Australia, upcycler Worn Up and soil scientist Dr Oliver Knox, of the University of New England (UNE), who is supported by the Cotton Research and Development Corporation.

It is being carried out on a cotton farm, just outside the rural town of Goondiwindi, Queensland, where two tonnes of cotton textiles, garments and end-of-life emergency service uniforms have been shredded by Worn Up in Sydney, transported to the farm, and spread onto a field by farmer, Sam Coulton.
