Donation Overload: Textile Recycling Webinar

June 8 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The wellbeing of our students, instructors, employees and community members is a top priority at General Assembly. In light of the evolving COVID-19 situation, all workshops, bootcamps, and events – including this one – will temporarily be held online.

Textile collection agencies and nonprofits will continue to be inundated with more donations than they can process. In addition to wasteful practices by industries and consumers, the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated a change for consumer buying trends that may be hard to roll back.

What innovative solutions can be developed to ensure that our unwanted garments and textile products are disposed of in a way that promotes reuse and recycling, as well as significant change in the apparel industry? Join us to find out.
