People often question about textile recycling, including me.
Why they are not recycled? Why they ends-up at land's fill? Does recycled polyester mean that it is from PET bottles that I put into recycle bins in the past? Is natural and synthetic mixed material is good for the environment?
No, No, No, No.
Even with this amazing technology of identifying the textile contents, still textile sorting and recycling is not happening in many countries. We just don't have a proper system. We need a proper platform about this instead of sending and selling them to Africa.

        Complexity of Textile Composition might the main challenge here, making it difficult to efficiently separate & process textiles for recycling.
