Recycling Our Textiles
The treatment of waste textiles has always been of core concern for Gravalot. Each year 26.2 million tonnes of CO2 is produced in the UK due to textiles, and 350,000 tonnes worth of textiles is sent to landfill. At Gravalot, we make small production runs for each collection, which eliminates our need for sales of unsold stock and also reduces the amount of waste we generate. Any small amount of unsold stock has typically been defected, then passed onto local recyclers and charities, to ensure our buyers can claim ownership to the very best quality that we have on offer.
As much as we recycle however, there still remain offcuts of textiles or garments that can't be effectively recycled, or reused in future projects. Now, we're proud to announce that we've entered into a partnership with Avena Group
, to help us recycle 100%
of our textiles going forwards. Avena Group is a trusted brand in the recycling industry and has confidently demonstrated their ability in managing textile recycling programmes with the core values of security, integrity and sustainability throughout any destruction process.
We look forward to working with Avena and contributing even more to the climate recovery.
