रिसाइकिलिंग के जरिये पुराने टायरों को बैग्‍स, एसेसरीज और फुटवेयर में बदल रहे

रबड़ के टायरों को अक्सर बिना सोचे-समझे इस्तेमाल के बाद फेंक दिया जाता है. हालांकि क्या आप जानते हैं कि ये भी पर्यावरण को नुकसान पहुंचाने में अहम भूमिका निभाते हैं. टायर सूरज के संपर्क में आने पर मीथेन गैस छोड़ते हैं. डंपिंग ग्राउंड इसके निपटान का निश्चित रूप से कोई समाधान नहीं है. इससे न केवल भूमि प्रदूषण बल्कि वायु प्रदूषण भी होता है.  हालांकि, ऐसे ब्रांड हैं जो आपको अधिक टिकाऊ वार्डरोब उपलब्‍ध कराने के लिए टायर के कचरे का इस्‍तेमाल कर रहे हैं. क्लॉथ्स विद ए कॉन्शियस के इस एपिसोड में हम आपको टायर के कचरे को लग्जरी उत्पादों में रिसाइकिल करने वाले कुछ ब्रांडों से परिचित करा रहे हैं.

Clothes With A Conscience

Reports suggest that textile waste is the second-largest contributor to pollution in India. Fast fashion, toxic dyes, mass industrialization, and lack of repurposing have led to a massive increase in textile waste. Globally, around 10% of textile gets reused and the rest goes to landfills. This creates an enormous ripple effect on the environment, with a rise in landfills, emission of greenhouse gases, and climate change. The youth must focus on environmentally sustainable practices.

USHA and NDTV want to encourage and educate the masses on the need for sustainable fashion and repurposing. The 4-month initiative is about building conversations and awareness around repurposing textiles and sustainable fashion. The campaign will feature brands and individuals who are promoting recycling and upcycling, giving your clothes a conscience.
