5 Ways To Help Benefit The Environment

As a textile recycling company, our main goal is to help reduce the fashion industry’s impact on the environment. With that in mind, it is important for us to share our perspective on days like today, #WorldEnvironmentDay. Below, we highlight 5 ways we are improving the environment—and yes, we could definitely do a part two to this.

1. Efficient Daily Collections

We at Roberts Recycling are proud to say we continue to excel in its daily operations, with an impressive 90 collections every day from our depots in the North West and Wales. This efficient and consistent collection process ensures that recyclable materials are gathered swiftly and reliably, reducing the time waste spends in the environment and maximising the volume of materials that can be repurposed.

2. Massive Clothing Recycling Efforts

Did you know that we recycle a whopping 50 tons of clothing every single day? 😮♻️ This effort significantly reduces the volume of textile waste that ends up in landfills, ensuring that usable materials are given a second life. Our commitment to large-scale recycling makes a substantial positive impact on the environment, helping to conserve resources and reduce pollution.

3. Keeping Millions of Items Out of Landfills

Every month, we at Roberts Recycling stop over 2 million items from going to landfill. This is a crucial achievement, as landfills are a major source of environmental pollution, contributing to soil and water contamination, as well as greenhouse gas emissions. By diverting these items from landfills, we are not only conserving space but also protecting the environment from the harmful effects of waste decomposition.

4. Promoting Circular Fashion Models

We work one-on-one with key fashion businesses to enable them to create better circular business models. This partnership involves collaborating with fashion brands to implement sustainable practices, such as designing for longevity, encouraging recycling, and reducing waste. By fostering these relationships, we are helping to reshape the fashion industry into one that prioritises sustainability and environmental responsibility.

5. Transitioning to Electric Vehicles

In our ongoing efforts to reduce our carbon footprint, we are switching our vans to electric. This transition to electric vehicles is a significant step towards reducing emissions and promoting cleaner air. Electric vehicles produce zero tailpipe emissions, helping to combat climate change and improve air quality in the communities we serve.

On this World Environment Day, we at Roberts Recycling are proud to reaffirm our commitment to making a tangible difference in the environment through our dedicated recycling efforts, strategic partnerships, and sustainable practices.

By efficiently managing collections, recycling vast amounts of clothing, keeping millions of items out of landfills, promoting circular fashion models, and transitioning to electric vehicles, we are leading the way in environmental stewardship.
