Title

Global Material Flows for Clothing, 2015

Description

This graphic illustrates the product life cycle of the global clothing economy. It appears in a report created for the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, A New Textiles Economy: Redesigning Fashion's Future. Among the report's important points: virtually no recycled materials are used in the manufacture of clothing; two-thirds of that virgin material is some form of plastic; and that about 85% of all clothing materials are wasted during production, end up in landfills, or are incinerated.

This item consists of two image files, both the annotated original and one cleaned up for display purposes.
