WRAP is a climate action NGO working around the globe to tackle the causes of the climate crisis and give the planet a sustainable future. WRAP’s expert-led textiles initiatives are accelerating the clothing and textiles industry’s move to a sustainable, circular economic system including Textiles 2030 in the UK and the global Textiles Action Network.
WRAP’s Textiles 2030 is a decade-long initiative dedicated to collecting data for measuring and disseminating to ensure outcomes are upheld and accelerated. In the UK 336,000¹ tonnes of clothing goes to landfill or incineration every year. WRAP’s research indicates that the reuse and recycling of textiles could contribute to up to 12%² of the 50% reduction in carbon footprint that is needed by 2030 to maintain a 1.5 degree level of global warming.
