What we do
We match brands & designers to buy & sell unused textiles
Creating connections to reduce textile waste and extend the life of materials globally
Reusing fabrics can help solve the fashion waste crisis
NEW FABRIC PRODUCTION IS HURTING THE PLANET
Textile production produces an estimated 1.2 billion tonnes of CO2 and consumes 79 billion cubic meters of fresh water annually.
The growing and production of fibers consumes the greatest amount of water.
PERFECTLY GOOD FABRICS ARE DISCARDED OR INCINERATED
85% of textiles go into landfill each year. That’s enough to fill the Sydney harbor annually.
Landfill creates huge amounts of toxins and greenhouse gases leaving a huge print in the environment.
REUSING FABRIC FIGHTS THE WASTE PROBLEM
Through textile recovery we avoid the production of new fabrics, therefore the impact is the lowest.
Giving a second life to 1kg of fabric (for example organic cotton) can save up to 20,000 liters of water.
Creating a community for buying and selling textiles that will reduce the textile waste problem and minimise the environmental impact of the fashion industry. Recovo brings you closer to a circular fashion future.
Creating an educational movement that will change the way of producing fashion for ever. Collaborating with other industries and allies to preserve natural resources of our planet through reusing and circular initiatives.
