Oxfam Wastesaver Hub

The Advanced Textiles Research Group has recently been awarded funds by the Sustainable Society Network+ to study the use of electronic tagging in textile recycling. Therefore, members of the Group were pleased to be taken on a tour earlier today of Oxfam’s Wastesaver recycling site by Lorraine Needham-Brinley (pictured with Professor Dias).

Wastesaver is a major UK hub for the recycling of textiles and includes an online shop for selling donated garments.
