The world now consumes about 80 billion new pieces of clothing every year. This is 400% more than the amount we consumed just two decades ago.
As new clothing comes into our lives, we also discard old clothes at a shocking pace. Every person on the planet throws 14 kilograms of textiles into waste every year. However, such wastes are harmful for the environment. To save our planet, used textiles must be worn out, collected and recycled. Recycle and reuse is a very important strategy of conservation, and we must treat used clothes as raw material, not as garbage. Fortunately, there are nowadays many innovative ways to reuse and recycle wastes so that water and natural resources can be saved.
HSL, from the very beginning, expressed a very strong commitment to conserve water and energy. As a tangible demonstration of this commitment, HSL has been working with a reputed buyer from Finland, producing quality sweater from recycled yarn.
