Reusing 1 meter of Recovo fabric saves on average 293 L of water

Recovo and Dcycle team up to measure the impact of textile waste | Recovo

We have saved more than 4 million litres of water and 111.655 m2 of textile waste since we started our activity in July 2021.

Recovo together with Dcycle, startup that offers a platform to measure and reduce the environmental impact of companies, have joined forces with the aim of measuring the environmental savings generated by Recovo’s business activity.

Recovo is a B2B platform where fashion brands can buy and sell deadstock fabrics, thereby avoiding the production of new fabrics and the over-consumption of natural resources. Reusing fabrics is a big step towards circularity. It avoids greenhouse gas emissions from fabric incineration. Many brands have already benefited from our platform to sell and buy natural, recycled or synthetic fabrics. These include EcoalfPyratexHemper and Pronovias.

“Our main need was to demonstrate in a quantifiable way the environmental impact associated with the re-use of existing materials versus newly produced materials,” says Monica Rodriguez, CEO of Recovo.

 

Through Dcycle’s environmental intelligence engine, more than 900 types of fabrics have been processed in an automated and personalized way, which has involved filtering more than 1 million pieces of data. The final result of this analysis is the personalized data sheets with the impact (liters of water, kg of CO2 and m2 of textile waste saved) associated with each fabric available in our website.

‍Using this information, it has been possible to calculate the total savings generated by our activity since July 2021. In just one year we have managed to save more than 419 million liters of water and save more than 1 million m2 of textile waste.

 

 

“Every time Recovo makes a product upload we analyze more than 10 million data to generate the most reliable impact metrics in real time. I believe that after this project no brand has an excuse for not measuring and improving its environmental impact,” says Juanjo Mestre, CEO of Dcycle.

 

Our customers will now be able to make a better purchasing decision thanks to the access to complete and transparent information about the recovered fabrics. This collaboration has made it possible to achieve our goal: to transform the traditional textile sourcing model through technology, traceability, and access to reliable information.
