10:00 a.m. – Textile Waste Recovery
Susan Inglis, Executive Director, Sustainable Furnishings Council
Presentation Area / Suites at Market Square T-822

Is your company struggling to manage large quantities of samples: at the end of Showtime, in your showroom, in your design studio? The entire industry must address this problem, as textiles are the fastest growing type of waste in US landfills. Join us as we explore what it will take for the residential textiles industry to recover more waste, not only by upcycling scraps for manufacture into smaller articles, but through various systems of recycling: chemical and mechanical. Learn, also, about the related potential savings, for the planet and your own bottom line.
