Kleiderly has developed a patent-pending process to recycle textile waste into a plastic alternative, solving two environmental problems at once. 87% of textiles end up in landfill for over 200 years, or get incinerated. Kleiderly solves this by diverting textiles and transforming them to replace plastics derived from crude oil, saving 2.5kg of CO2e- for every kilogram of plastic. The material can be used seamlessly in existing machinery, to produce anything from clothing hangers, to furniture, to eyewear, now available to pre-order online. Kleiderly’s mission is to create a circular fashion industry and give textile waste a new life.
