Title: Proposed Process for Management of Textile Waste from Redesigned Secondhand Clothing Production in Haiti: No-Waste, Recycling, and Repurposing

Cornell University’s team for textile recycling in Haiti is designing a sustainable, zero-waste process for upcycling secondhand clothing in Haiti. They analyze fibers to better treat textile waste, use 3D to create fast designs and use cradle-to-cradle concepts in repurposing guides. This closed-loop recycling system will be shared with small second hand clothing businesses in Haiti to help green their operations.
