The United Kingdom produces 206.456 tonnes of textile waste in a year. Out of the 3.1kg of textile waste each Briton produces every year, only 0.3kg are recycled and 0.4 kg are reused. However, 0.8kg are incinerated yearly per person and 1.7kg are disposed of in landfills
That is insane, generally these are perfectly good fabric, I have decided to repurpose where I can, so here is a repurposed skirt, and I am on a mission to make as much as I can from all that amazing fabric.
I have washed all repurposed fabrics at 90 degrees and ironed them, so they are fully sanitised.
