It is really a new from my old favorite shirt?
Shops such as H & M tempt with promises: old clothes can give off, recycle and get coupon. The documentary “clothes recycling: humbug or sense?” asks: this is at all possible? The answer is more than clear.
It says “much too good to throw away”, on the website of H & M. The call: Bring old clothing and discount vouchers for cash. Other shops offer the old-type new buy principle. Sounds Yes also super, what is anyway not more worn is recycled to new clothes and less waste is created. But is that even possible?
The 25-minute documentary of Arte “clothes recycling -humbug or sensible?” is exactly this question. After a few minutes, it becomes clear: no, it is not possible. Hardly much more than rags, painter fleece or filling material for car seats can be produce from a colorful mixture of materials. An old favorite T-shirt from which is a new favorite T-shirt? A misconception. Not recycling, but finally does.
Another problem: The specified clothing is full of seams, buttons, zippers, and labels that come with in the shredder. The result: The fibers are too short, uneven and can not be spun to a new thread. Even substances that are blended directly from the manufacture, could be further processed without the admixture of new cotton fibers to a new yarn.
The bottom line: Clothes recycling is theoretically possible, nonsense would be but economic. Buttons & co. would have to be removed, the clothes in front of the process are sorted by colors and Matieralien. A huge effort! A better alternative: conscious consumption, quality of care and better times to exchange a garment than to throw it in the bin.
