RE:VIVE Now aims to be the catalyst in shaping the social fabric towards a sustainable culture in recycling and upcycling of textile to secure the future of our generations to come.
Synthetic fabrics that were thrown away after use were part of the problem. Synthetic fabrics like polyester, nylon and spandex (including materials like Dri-Fit) can take between 20 to 200 years to break down. This makes it easy for fabrics like these to take up more and more space in landfills.
So what about fabrics that are more biodegradable like cotton? Even though cotton only takes about a week to five months to break down, buying more clothes instead of recycling them means manufacturers have to grow and harvest even more cotton to keep up. This can lead to several effects such as soil erosion and water pollution.
