  • Recycling in Textiles

    An increasing amount of waste is generated each year from textiles and their production. For economic and environmental reasons, it is necessary that as much of this waste as possible is recycled instead of being disposed of in landfill sites. In reality the rate of textile recycling is still relatively low. On average approximately 10 million ...

  • High Tech Trash

    The Digital Age was expected to usher in an era of clean production, an alternative to smokestack industries and their pollutants. But as environmental journalist Elizabeth Grossman reveals in this penetrating analysis of high tech manufacture and disposal, digital may be sleek, but it's anything but clean. Deep within every electronic device lie ...
