Recycling at Escapade
Did you know that you can now recycle your clothes at Escapade?
Whether it be costumes or old socks, here at Escapade we encourage you to bring us your preloved garments from any brand so that we can recycle them with our partners at I:CO and prevent them from going to landfill.
Every year in the UK alone, more than 30% of our unwanted clothing goes to landfill equating to around £140 million worth of used yet wearable clothing.
This causes harm to the environment as well as wasting valuable resources.
If we changed the way we disposed of clothing we could reduce the carbon, water and waste footprints of clothing consumption by 10-20% each and save approximately £3billion per year from what we would otherwise spend on resources to make clean clothes.
By working with our partners at I:CO we can work towards making positive changes and take an important step towards increasing the volume of recycled garments and decreasing the volume of garments that go to landfill.
