Blenderz Garment Recyclers reclaims and recycles textiles that are deemed unsellable by thrift stores, charities, the general public, and businesses. Blenderz uses a zero-waste, no landfill approach through a mixture of solutions that keep these textiles from the traditionally linear supply chain stream and recycles them in a closed-loop system.
In nine months Blenderz has reclaimed and upcycled, 81.35 tons of textile waste from the local export and waste streams. Most of the material has been upgraded in value and re-entered into the local textile and garment supply chain further reducing the consumption of new fabrics for other small businesses. The volume of landfill avoided is 32,138.27 cubic yards which is equal to 9.8 Olympic size swimming pools.
