The textile industry is one of the largest industries in India and over earth. Textile industry generates vast and significant amount of waste in its production cycles. Textile waste is a major environmental problem, as it takes up space in landfills, contributes to greenhouse gas emissions, and pollutes the environment. Every year, millions of tonnes of clothes are manufactured, worn and discarded. No wonder, globally, the textile industry is known as a polluter because of its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, discharge of waste water, dumping of used clothes, use of chemicals which are often carcinogenic, etc. As the textile industry consumes huge quantities of resources such as water, energy and chemicals during its production, the indiscriminate use of these resources poses a threat to sustainability of life on the earth. However, there are solutions to minimize these problems, and use of sustainable fibres, process, chemicals coupled with textile recycling and circularity are some of them. By using textile scraps or Chindi’s, trained man power can create altogether new products that are not only sustainable and attractive but also remunerative. Such recycled products are catching the mind of new generation and offer more market. The textile products used for recycling include chindi, rugs, used clothing, accessories, and many more. Sustainable textile recycling has several benefits. First, it reduces the amount of textile waste that ends up in landfills. Second, it conserves natural resources, as it reduces the demand for virgin materials such as cotton, silk, viscose, etc. Third, it creates additional job opportunities for artisans and workers who are skilled in textile recycling. Overall, the goal of this document is to provide information indepth input on sustainable textile recycling, with a focus on the use of textile scraps or Chindi’s to create new products. By doing so, it is hopeful of inspiring individuals and businesses to adopt sustainable practices in the textile industry and contribute to a more sustainable future.
