With the apparel industry responsible for 10% of global carbon emission, fast fashion has become synonymous with environmental havoc.
Australian circular essentials apparel brand Upparel is tackling the issue head-on as one of the leaders in the textile upcycling industry.
As the first digital textile recycler, they have saved 2,103,621 items of clothing from the landfill so far. The items are then circulated as long as they provide value, meaning 1,122,035 kg of greenhouse gases has been prevented until now.
