WANT TO GET RID OF OLD CLOTHES? SEND THEM FOR RECYLING NOW!
Many Malaysians may not realise that fabric or textile waste makes up to five per cent of the total solid waste in our landfills, which can take up to 200 years to decompose. In a single day, Malaysians can produce up to 2,000 tonnes of textile waste or equivalent to five per cent of solid waste that ends up in landfills.
To get more people involved in their initiatives and reduce that number, Kloth Cares has teamed up with Edotco, SWCorp, the Selangor Youth Community, Life Line Clothing Sdn Bhd Malaysia, Greenpins and Shell TTDI for a one-day fabric recycling drive.
