Do your children know about UPCYCLING? UpCycling is the process of converting excess materials into new, limited edition products of higher quality and environmental value. The term UpCycle is generally a reinvestment in the environment. In the simplest terms, upcycling is the practice of taking something that is thrown away and repurposing it into something of greater utilization and intrinsic worth in its second life, which is what LOOPTWORKS is all about.
In 2006, Americans generated more than 11.8 million tons of textile waste, which represents 10 pounds for every person. Every week, one factory can dispose of about 60,000 pounds of textile waste that goes into landfills. Clothes that are discarded not only contribute solid waste in landfills, but also are part of a system that uses energy and creates carbon emissions in transit to distant lands. Cast-off clothing is replacing traditional locally made textiles, creating significant cultural and economic ramifications.
Do you know that it takes more than 400 gallons of water to make 1 organic t-shirt? LOOPTWORKS, an Oregon based company with Sales Offices in Gloucester MA, is providing an option NOT to waste 400 gallons of water to create yet another cotton T-shirt by upcycling excess materials that would otherwise get wasted. Does that sound good?
LOOPTWORKS believes that the most environmentally responsible thing to do is not create anything new and use only what already exists.
