SACRAMENTO - Legislation has been introduced in the US state of California which is aimed at creating a "first of its kind" extended producer responsibility (EPR) textile recycling and repair programme.

Senator Josh Newman has introduced the bill, SB 707, which would require producers of clothing and other textiles to implement and fund a state-wide collection and recycling programme for textiles.

“The rise of fast fashion, which revolves around the marketing and sale of low-cost, low-quality garments which tend to go out of style with increasing speed, threatens to have a long-lasting and devastating impact on our planet," said Senator Newman.
