Life Line Clothing Malaysia Sdn Bhd was formed in 2013 with one goal in mind... to reduce Malaysia's fabric waste pollution and to aid and assist developing world countries by supplying second-hand clothing whilst providing the most efficient cost-effective textile recycling program that benefits the community.
They collect used textile waste across Malaysia by working closely with the communities, corporations and local governments. They offer hundreds of 'drop off' locations and frequently hold collection drives by working hand in hand with a number of institutions including schools and universities as well as both small and large corporations.
The wearable excess used textiles are sold to developing countries and the unwearable items are manufactured into cleaning products, recycled for fibre use and used for energy, thus massively reducing the number of textiles being thrown into our Malaysian landfill sites.
LLCM also partners with local charities such as National Cancer Council (MAKNA) and Recycle Community of Malaysia (RCOMM) and creates valuable revenue by providing logistics and infrastructure for the collections thus helping them finance their noble causes.
Formed and founded on the 11th of December 2013, Kloth Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. is a Malaysian social entrepreneurship movement for keeping fabrics and plastics away from landfills through the circular economy business model.
Kloth Cares Fabric Recycling Movement is an inspiration of Kloth Malaysia’s co-founders who aspire to change mindsets and to empower Malaysians to take action in keeping unwanted fabrics away from landfills. Selangor Youth Community (SAY) and Life Line Clothing Malaysia (LLCM) are the fabric movement’s founding partners in catalyzing zero fabric wastes in the landfills and instead, giving them new life and purpose.
Launched on the 18th of August, 2018 as Malaysia’s first fabric recycling movement establishment, our approach to managing fabric and textile wastes is by staying true to the 5R principles of “Rethink, Reduce, Reuse, Repurpose and Recycle” with our holistic approach. Kloth Cares Fabric Recycling Movement aims to divert 2, 000, 000 kg of unwanted fabrics (equivalent to 12, 000, 000 t-shirts) from ending up in the landfills. Themed #2Million2Save, this campaign will run from the launch of the movement until the 18th of February, 2021.
