Innovation for textile recycling in France
Every company that brings clothing, household linen and footwear items to the French market, must either set its own internal collecting and recycling program accredited by the French Public Authorities or use service of Eco TLC to provide it for them. Eco TLC is the only organisation accredited by the French public authorities to comply with the European environmental standards regarding sustainable waste management. It covers clothing, household linen and footwear (TLC in French) producers, distributors or importers. This is a non-for-profit private company directed by a board of industrialists that aims to achieve 100% reuse and recycling of used TLCs.
The latest Eco TLC Newsletter on innovation in the field of textile recycling takes stock of 18 R&D projects supported since 2010.
