Textile Recycling

Reimagining the possibilities of textile recycling.

We are imagining a new circular economy model focused on recycling and upcycling textile waste.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

Given that 83% of Made in America clothing is cut and sewn in Los Angeles, the region has a tremendous opportunity to drive significant change and LACI is leading the effort.

Moving forward to a textile recycling pilot project

LACI and partners seek to scale innovations through a materials marketplace pilot model capable of diverting over 250,000 tons of pre-consumer textile waste from landfills per year by 2028. This could serve as a template for cities around the world to replicate, and a model for when the world arrives in Los Angeles for the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
